Eight ladies gathered at the new Mounder Grounds Cafe on Saturday morning July 5th for their annual Ladies of '57 breakfast. Mounder Grounds Cafe is a new breakfast stop for the ladies and it is a cozy, conversation-friendly spot. Catching up on a years worth of news were: Mary Jane F., Ebba L., Diane B., Marion D., Nancy S., Sylvia S., Sara Y., and Lynne F. These ladies and many of those classmates not attending have been doing this annually for over 50 years now. . . with no plans to discontinue. . . see you next year!

At our breakfast it was made known that classmates Nancy and Moe K. have invited us to a mini-reunion gathering at their country home next summer. . . early plans indicate it will be a casual, outdoorsy event with a pot-luck style meal, just the kind of relaxed gathering that allows for lots of visiting and catching up. Nancy S. has offered to do the contacting and indicated some firm information will be forthcoming around the end of the year holidays. The getting together more frequently seemed be a well-received idea. The closeness of our class, fostered so carefully over the years, now shows in our plans to gather more often. Hope everyone reading this can make plans to come to this picnic gathering.
As most of you know by now, we lost our German Exchange student, Klaus D. in February of this year. We were all saddened by this and some have shared their sorrow and memories of Klaus on our MMHS 1957 web site. In the course of remembering Klaus both privately with one another and again at Saturday's breakfast, a memorial has been mentioned . . . a tree was suggested to be planted either at Dillehay Park or at the new Mounder Park across from our old high school (which doesn't seem to have any trees currently). Lynne F., the class tree hugger, has offered to take up the collection of funds and see to the planting, care and feeding of the new planting, and oak perhaps a good choice. Details will be talked over at our gathering next summer at Nancy and Moe's home. We hope our classmates will welcome this as a fitting memorial to Klaus . . . in the meantime your input would be appreciated.
