The Dracut Senior High School Class of 1977 will celebrate its 40th reunion on Saturday, Jan. 13, starting at 8 p.m., at the Lo-Kai Restaurant, 1655 Lakeview Ave.
"Time may have passed, but friendships last forever," a description of the event reads on Facebook. "Meet up with old friends or make new ones."
Richard Dube, who is helping to organize the reunion, said there is no admission fee.
There will be a cash bar available for attendees. Jokingly, he added that the reunion lasts until the Lo-Kai runs out of tiki bowls.
"I'm looking forward to it," said Dube, who now lives in Hudson, N.H. "It's been 40 years and a good amount of time has gone by. I actually ran the 30-year one, and it was nice to see everybody here together and tell old stories about school days, and reconnect with old classmates you haven't seen in a while."
Dube said the high school's 1977 class was one of the biggest from what he has heard.
"At the time, there was a lot of transition going on in the country, so it was kind of a great mix," he said. "It made it very interesting."
