The Winfield High School Graduating Class of 1957 held its 62nd year reunion on Oct. 19. Thirty-seven class members and spouses met at 10:30 a.m. at the Baden Square Senior Center.  The group enjoyed homemade pastries made by the class officers and visiting.

At noon Hilma Floyd Webber gave the invocation before the smothered chicken and brisket dinner was served. The table center pieces were floral place mats with royal blue flower pots filled with blue and white silk flowers. The classmates and spouses sat at tables designated for the month of their birthday.

President Bruce Wells welcomed all and called the business meeting to order. Wilma Floyd Anglemyer presented the memorial service for the nine deceased class members since our last reunion. Letters from classmates who could not attend were read by Lou Edwards Tharp. Bruce Wells reported on some statistics on the class. Hilma Floyd Webber, Winfield; Wilma Floyd Anglemyer, Winfield; Christine Waldorf Flottman, Winfield, and Bob Benson, Overland Park, have attended all of our 15 reunions.

Three classmates have missed only one reunion: Sharon Berry Crittenden, Winfield; Lou Edwards Tharp, Winfield;  Pat Hinkley Hess, Tulsa, Okla. Six missed only two: Lois Adams Carson, Gardener; Ron Eastman, Winfield; Gerald Graham; Winfield; Bruce Wells, Winfield; Janet Crouch Lembke, Overland Park; and Mary McElroy Wacker, Winfield; and three have missed three: Tonnie Martin Grunder, El Dorado; Verlane Mounts and Howard Phillips, Conway, Mo. Twenty-five classmates  attended..  

Bruce shared a number of jokes, class tales and funny stories. Everyone then shared an event or item they enjoyed most from a past reunion.

It was agreed to hold the next reunion in  2021, with the date to be decided later. More visiting was enjoyed, a class picture was taken and the group departed.
