I grew up in Robbinsdale and live in St. Louis Park now. All family picnics were spent at Graeser Park at Highway 100 and Highway 52 (now 81). This is a photo of my 3rd grade class at Graeser Park – probably a school picnic at year end.
Of the 23 in the photo, 21 graduated Robbinsdale High School in 1955. People didn’t move around as much as today. We still get together for lunch four or five times a year, and have a 65th Class Reunion in 2020 coming up!
