Elkhart High School class of 1941 80th anniversary reunion

Five members of the Elkhart High School Class of 1941 held their 80th reunion Wednesday at Cappy’s Northside Tavern.

ELKHART — The Elkhart High School Class of 1941 sticks together. On Wednesday, a group of local 98-year-olds celebrated their 80th anniversary of graduating from high school.

Despite all the years that have passed since nearly 400 students graduated from the high school, which was then located where the Elkhart County courthouse in downtown Elkhart sits today, it was not difficult for organizer Paul Thomas to locate his classmates. Those who are still in Elkhart see each other frequently.
