How it all began
(Excerpts of emails from Tom Williams to Shannon Jones
 
As I sort of recall, I did have lunch with Dave Morton and Danny Hill... on Thursday, September 20, 2007... at the Avenues Bistro at 63rd and Wornall (found it in my computer).
It may have been then when I first heard Dave propose the idea of a periodic lunch gathering of classmates.  It seems we had more than one lunch there.  Before that, several of us guys used to meet for lunch now and then at Jake Edwards' BBQ at 51st and Main.  Ralph Mills seemed to get that together, and Dave Morton was usually there. 
 
I think sometime after that September 2007 lunch, Dave got at least a couple of the gals together with him (maybe Kay Harkins, Shirley Fenton ??) and soon after that they started having the weekly brunches at First Watch at 83rd and Mission Road.
 
 
All of the photos on this page were taken during the first two years that classmates met.
Sad to say -- but some of those shown on this page have passed away after these photos were taken.
