As reported in the Prophetstown Echo, Tuesday, July 15, 2008:


Joan Johnson welcomed the 134 in attendance. She introduced Rev. Lauren Gerber from the class of 1938 who then gave the invocation.

Following the buffet meal a short business meeting was held.

The minutes of the 2007 meeting and treasurer's report were read and approved.

The roll call of classes was presented by Mary Anne Batten. First to respond from the Class of 1938 were Rev. Lauren Gerber and Robert Maxwell. They were given a memento from the group, attending from the 65 year were: Jerria Shearer Baumgartner and Art Johnson, 14 responded from the 50 year class and 1 member of the 25 year class was present.

Since there had been some complaint about the cost of the evening, Mary Anne had checked with Arnie's Happy Spot. After discussion, the group decided to stay at Deer Valley Country Club.

There were no volunteers for the office of Vice President, so no decision was made for next year.

Door Prizes were awarded and the 50/50 in the amount of $134.00 was won by Mrs. Art Wallgren.

The meeting closed and music was enjoyed by Jeff Weishaar of Ashton, IL

Next year's meeting will be on Saturday, June 13 at the Deer Valley Country Club.
