Welcome to the Galesburg Senior High School Class of 1959 web site!


2024 Annual Potluck

The GHS 1959 65th potluck will be Saturday, August 10th, at the Henderson Community Center (fire station), starting at 12 noon.

Please bring a dish to pass. The main course and water will be furnished.

Directions: If coming from US 150, turn East on Henderson Road. Keep going to the stop sign in Henderson.

If coming from Galesburg on Seminary Street, follow the road into Henderson until you come to a stop sign. Turn right here.

Keep going a short distance, then turn left at the first intersection. You will see the fire station on your right. In a short distance is the entrance to the parking lot behind the fire station on your right. The entrance to the Community Center is in the back of the fire station.

Last year, we had someone come who had not been to any of our get-togethers. Come and see who else might attend!


Please post birthday wishes on the 'Birthday Wishes' tab.

Use the 'Classmate Discussion Forum' to post and discuss items of interest, etc.

It has been suggested that a prayer chain be started for our class. Lowell Peterson, a retired United Methodist pastor, has volunteered to help with this. For information, see the ‘Prayer Chain Request’ tab on the left.

A new item has been added on the left: Budget School Newspaper. Many thanks to Mike Wald for submitting all these issues of our school newspaper!

Checks for our scholarship need to be made out to: Galesburg Public Schools Foundation, NOT Class of 59 Memorial Scholarship, as previously indicated. Class of 59 Memorial Scholarship can be indicated in the memo line, if desired.

Scholarship info has been added to the menu on the left.

Classmates can now upload photos to the Photo Gallery.  Try it out, but use common sense!
