Bonnie Visits with Classmates in Muscatine, Iowa

When Wayne and I were in town for his class reunion in September, I also was able to meet up with two of my high school classmates, Anita Bendle Bennett and Judy Leu Pare. Here are a few photos from that day. Anita and Judy then went to have dinner with Gini VanZandt - I've included a photo of them that Judy sent to me.

MHS Class of 1959 - Dinner on Saturday, September 26, 2009

The 50th reunion of the 1959 graduating classes of Muscatine High School and Hayes Catholio High School held its reunion dinner at Whispering Pines on Tipton Road in Muscatine. In addition to a wonderful dinner of steak, pork chops, and chicken prepared by the famous A Guy & A Grill, emcee Gary Diercks shared some happenings of long ago. Everyone present was pleased to learn that Larry Mittman's demise was greatly exaggerated... since he was here.

There are six Blog entries altogether, with photos from both Friday and Saturday evenings.

If you find any names that are incorrect, please send me corrections. Sometimes the name badges were partially hidden. E-mail corrections or additional names to: I'll correct the Blog if necessary. It was fun to share your reunion with all of you, and I hope you enjoy the photos.
