DIXFIELD — The class of 1959 Dixfield-Dirigo High School held their 50th class reunion on June 20 at the Kelly Middle School, with 11 class members attending. Social time was held from 3 to 5 p.m. and classmates travelled from California and South Carolina.

Among those attending were: Bill Waterhouse and his wife, California; Marshall Holman and his wife, South Carolina; Galen Williamson, Wesley; Howard Wright and his wife, Monmouth and Florida; Robert Biden and his wife, East Poland; Rand Stowell, Weld; June Hudon Swan, Bar Harbor; Sandra Swett Worth, Greenville and Florida; Debbie Defoe Townsend, Stratton; Barbara Robbins Buzzell, Dixfield; and Gloria Morse Tardif, Mechanic Falls.

The class had 25 graduates in 1959. Eight have deceased, leaving 17 classmates.

The members elected to start a scholarship in honor of their hockey coach and teacher, Linc Gordon, who left Dixfield after the class to go to Edward Little High School in Auburn. Anyone who would like to donate to the scholarship in his name may do so by sending their donation to: Dirigo/Dixfield Alumni Assoc., P.O.
