Thanks to Harriett Lee Wayne (Jan '55) and Scott Scholle (Jun '54) for making the arrangements for the Friday event.

JANUARY AND JUNE GRADUATION CLASSES

BEAUMONT 1954

With lots of time and opportunity to get reacquainted, over 60 members and spouses of the January and June 1954 graduation classes enjoyed a get together in the Garden Room at Spazio’s in Westport in west county on Friday and Saturday evenings.  A good time was had by all but we really missed those who couldn’t make it.  We hope you can join us next year for our annual picnic.

A big “thank you” from all of us to those who served on the planning group: Nancy Garrett, Joann Jansing, Carolyn Mohrman, Norma Jean Swope and Peggy Vaal from the January class; Carole Binder, Karl Erselius and Don Hoelscher from the June class.  And, as you all know, Don Briscoe was a real motivator on the committee until his passing.

You’ll find pictures on the reunion pages (Cocktail Party Pictures, Tour Photos & Banquet Photos pages).

Friday evening was casual and was a great opportunity to visit with each other (see Cocktail Party Pictures page).

On Saturday, some of the out-of-towners donned Beaumont blue and gold and toured some St. Louis attractions that we had not seen in many years, i.e., Union Station, Budweiser Brewery, Soulard Market and the Gateway to the West – the Arch!!  (The arch picture was “photo shopped” - no photo op available   we were actually at union station……who knew?)

On Saturday evening we enjoyed a wonderful buffet dinner and more nostalgia as we visited with those we have not seen for several years. 

On a sad note, we observed a moment of silence as Karl read the names of our many friends and classmates lost since our 50th reunion.

A picnic is being planned again for next September (2010) – so be sure to put it on your calendar when the date is announced.  Watch this website for further information.

See you then!
