Reunions Are Big Thing For Sextonites By ihe Village Gossip Sexion — Family reunions are still going strong around Sexton. The annual Wise family gathering was held at the Clear Lake park again with 106 attending. They enjoyed a beautiful day although there was hardly room for the kids to get into the water, it was so crowded. Mr and Mrs Glenn Gabrielson and Joyce and Kenyon went to the Gabrielaon reunion at the Wild Life Club at Pine Lake near Eldora. Accompanying them was a large cake in honor of Glenn's birthday. It was a hard choice but Glennda gave up the trip to accompany Rev. and Mrs Webb of Wesley to Okdboji for a week at Camp Quest, the Methodist youngsters group. Bob Kelley isn't going to be 1 the most popular fellow with the rest of the husbands for a while, He took his wife out to dinner and a show at Mason City to celebrate their fourth anniversary last week. The showing made by the ballplayers at the Friendly Club picnic must have made them realize they needed practice. Now there is a real hot ball game almost every night across the road in Glenn Gabrielson's hay field. The youngsters and some not so young, are joining in and a real professional looking backstop that may have once been a chicken pen has been added. Bill Wermersen of Curlew, a former resident here, visited with some of his old friends and stopped to see how August Kirschbaum was feeling after his recent spells in the hospital. Small as the town is we'd be willing to bet the ladies were in better attire at the come-as-you- are coffee at the Bob Kelley home this week, than a similar group would have been in the city.
