From the Fond du Lac paper, 1976:
The classes of Oakfield High school for 1924 through 1929 held a
reunion at the Camelot Country Club near Lomira Sunday.
It was also a surprise occasion to honor a former English teacher, Mrs.
Charles Vande Zande of Campbellsport, the former Dorothy Seering, who
is soon to move to Arizona. Thirty four persons were in attendance.
It was the 50th anniversary of the graduation class of 1926, consisting
of four members, one of the smallest classes in the school’s history.
Present were Mrs. Vande Zande, Mrs. La Verne Hanners Marquart, Gertrude
Moon Goldberg and James Richardson. The fourth member of the class, Caroll Neeb, formerly of Oak Center, is deceased.
... There were special comments on the Oakfield High School girls
basketball team which for three consecutive years held the Tri-County
Championship, coached by Dorothy Seering.
Basketball trips by the girls and boys teams by bob sled and Model T
Fords to Lomira, Campbellsport and Rosendale were recalled.
