51st Reunion Plans

The Lakewood High School Reunion Planning Committee has been busy planning our 50th 51st class reunion to take place on November 6, 2021.

All classmates that graduated from Lakewood High School as part of the class of 1970 are invited to participate. To keep in contact with classmates and make reunion reservations easier, the Reunion Planning Committee continues to maintain a FREE website for our classmates. The good news is that you have found it!. You can also get in touch with classmates on our site and keep up to date on old friends, etc.

We are actively trying to locate classmates to keep them up to date on the 50th 51st class reunion events which include:
