West Virginia Reunion Brings Family Together By Diddy Mathews Palmer Telephone 342-1010 A surprise party is practically never surprising to the honor guest.. .especially when approximately 50 people are involved in the hush-hush plans and all sworn to deepest secrecy. An exception, however, was a family get-together given last week as a compliment to Mrs. Margaret Summers Bouc h a r d , of the One Morris Apartments. All who were in on arrangements for the gathering (months in the making) were surprised (and delighted) when Mrs. Bouchard arrived on the scene and was totally flabbergasted to find her entire family assembled together, waiting with belated Mother's Day greetings and gifts. Some of the guests had traveled quite a distance to get there on time. The reunion was held at the White Oak Country Club in Oak Hill. A formal dinner followed an afternoon of golf, tennis, bridge and gab fests. All five of Mrs. Bouchard's children were present, plus all but one of her 10 grandchildren, her nine great-grandchildren, her sister, sister-in- law and several lifetime friends. Her oldest son, Walter G. Summers, and his wife, who live in Mount Hope, made final plans for the party. Her two other sons and their wives are Mr. and Mrs. Roy T.
