The Buns

A group of fun-loving, sometimes rowdy Highland High School friends from the mid 1960s.  Now retired or semi-retired, they decided to form a children's charity and give back to the Northwest Indiana community.

ORIGINAL JACKET

This is the only surviving original jacket.  Purchased and custom imprinted by Highland Department Store in 1966. The jacket was recreated 50 years later and distributed to the Original Buns and the recently added Honorary Buns.

FIVE OF THE ORIGINAL BUNS
