We had a very nice 55th Class Reunion on Saturday, October 6th, 2012. The main event took place at the Embassy Suites Hotel near the Plaza with plenty of time to visit and renew old friendships. The buffet meal was very good and the desserts were delicious. We had a chance to watch the video from the 50th reunion and it was great to see that again. We had 32 classmates along with 25 spouses/friends that were able to attend the Saturday event. That added up to 57 which is a coincidence since we are the class of "57. The Philgreen "boys" provided a church service on Sunday morning which was very nice of them to do and we appreciated the time and effort that took. Some of the classmates met for lunch at the Rozelle Court restaurant which is in the middle of the Nelson Atkins Art Gallery. They all enjoyed a little more time together. A big thank you goes out to the committee members of the 55th Reunion of the Westport Class of 1957. They are Juanita Furness Candillo, Ron Philgreen and Mary and Augie Ruf. They did a great job of putting together the reunion.

Please check this website often for future announcements, news from your classmates or anything that may be of some interest to you and your classmates. We would love to hear from you and also see pictures.

With warm regards,

Merry Krause Becker
