MANISTEE — Last month, Kari and Ben Packard hosted a dinner party for friends and family in Alexandria, Va.  Dierk Dommasch, a German foreign exchange student in Manistee at MHS during the 1960-61 school year, was in the states visiting New York City and the Washington D.C. area with his wife, and two of his four children.

During his time at MHS, he lived with the Robert and Dorothy Fredrickson family and graduated with Jeanne’s brother, Don, who passed away in 2009.  Dierk came back for his 50th MHS class reunion at the Manistee Golf and Country Club in 2011.  He has always had great memories of the days when he lived in Manistee, and still enjoys hearing about his classmates via email from the class.
