'47, '57 Presentation Class Reunion Two former classes from Presentation Academy High School, Whittemore, held reunions Saturday evening. The graduates of 1947 (top photo) enjoyed a dinner at Fairmont, while the class of 1957 (below) met for dinner at the Johnson House here. The get-togethers were planned separately - and the fact that both were held the same night was purely coincidence. The class of '47 held a short party at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Ken Farrell, north of Whittemore, before going to dinner and the class of '57 did the same at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jim Elbert here. Coincidence went further than the fact the classes held reunions the same night. There were 16 members in each class originally and nine were present at each reunion. All graduates of both classes are still alive with one exception. Robert Elbert of the 1947 class is deceased. Members shown in the top photo include, front row, left to right, Mrs. Dennis Weber (Rosanne Germann), Whittemore; Mrs. Roger Scott (Mary Jane Muller), Burt; Mrs. Jim Muller (Joanne Germann), Whittemore ; Mrs. Vern Bormann (Zita Fandel), Whitte- more; and Mrs. Ken Farrell (Florence Kollasch), Whittemore.
