Kasson-Mantorville Class of 1957 holds golden reunion
Fifty-seven years ago 52 members of K-M Class of 1957 graduated in Veteran's Park just east of the swimming pool in Kasson. Nine are now deceased. It was a gorgeous evening with the sun setting in the background and rain starting to sprinkle as everyone was leaving. Dr. Charles Mayo II was the commencement speaker.
A number of classmates and spouses rode a bus from Kasson Saturday, September 13 to Harriet Island in St. Paul where they met other classmates to go on a four hour cruise on the Mississippi. It was great weather and all had a wonderful time even though the cruise boat had a malfunction and was two hours and 13 minutes late returning to port. Free drinks were provided. Bets were taken for the minute we thought we would return to port. Bob Bzoskie was closest being one minute off (no prize).
The next morning the group had breakfast at Zumbro Valley Golf Club and some class members knew people from the class of 1964 who also were having a reunion.
