After his graduation from Kelso High School in 1965, Doug Clark went 35 years without seeing his high school sweetheart, Lizabeth “Betsy” Argle—until their high school reunion five years ago. From time to time they asked mutual friends how the other was doing. They each showed up alone to the reunion and the rest is history!
Before the 40th reunion, classmates watched as Argle walked down the aisle and married her high school boyfriend. The two decided to tie the knot at their class reunion because “It was a reunion that brought us together and it seemed appropriate that a reunion marry us,” Clark said.
The couple received help preparing for the wedding from high school pals. The minister is a classmate, the flowers were arranged by a classmate, the cake was made by a classmate—another Class of ’65 project.
