Approximately 20 people attended a class reunion in Fairfield this past weekend, some coming from as far away as Seattle, Washington. The Dogan High School Class of 1966 met at Sam's Restaurant to celebrate its 50th reunion. "It was a truly successful and beautiful occasion," said event coordinator Gloria Johnson English. The former students' third grade teacher, Irene Slaughter also attended the event. "What a joy to see and greet our wonderful classmates, some of whom we have not seen since graduation," said English.
