When the 60th Reunion was in the planning stage, Luann Mitchell Nelson contacted several classmates and asked if they might be interested in having a party in Branson, Missouri after the "official" reunion.
 
Luann called it a Farewell Party as this might very well be the last opportunity we will have to see each other again.
 
Nine classmates and seven spouses arrived in Branson on Sunday afternoon.  *

The Branson party was also called a Farewell Party.
No one knows what the future may hold for each of us.
 
At our age it is possible we will never see each other again.
 We hope that is not the case.  But you never know.
