History of North Bend

Not only was June 27, 2009 a day that celebrated the city of North Bend’s Centennial, but it was also a day that hosted the class reunion for Valley students graduating between 1937 and 1946. These students were products of the consolidated district of the North Bend, Snoqualmie, Snoqualmie Falls and Fall City.

65 graduates were in attendance bringing lots of laughter, wonderful memories of past times, and many pictures of “Then and Now” generating a great deal of fun discussion about changes to us all.

Cecile Richards, who now lives in Vista, Calif., and her family decorated the hall and prepared a delicious gourment luncheon. Without Cecile, we would not attempt to have a reunion.

It took a great deal of time to contact all the graduates, since most have moved away from the Valley. Thanks to Marian Danforth, and Maxine Dovenberg, and a special thanks to Doris Wade, Angie Crawford, Doris Reynolds, Cecile Richards, who spent endless hours locating many of the graduates whose invitations were returned by the post office with notations, “unable to locate,” moved and left no forwarding address, etc.
