On Friday, August 5, the Cedar Springs Class of 1942 met at Main Street Restaurant for their 74th class reunion.

Five classmates were able to attend: Mary Lewis Hawkins came from Tennessee; Esther Sullivan Bosscher came from Jenison; Jean Thrall Erickson came from Grand Rapids; Ethel Waller Ergang from Cedar Springs; and Virginia Dailey Schumann from Cedar Springs. All are in their 90s.

“Our class advisor Ray Rynberg and wife Jean usually come but have moved to East Lansing to be near family and were unable to come,” explained Schumann. “He is 98 and sharp—Jean is also.”

The group graduated during World War II. “We lost the men early due to the war,” wrote Schumann. “Most were injured. Mary Hawkins was in the WAVE, as well.”

She said the ones she knew that served right after graduation included Carl Middleton, Richard Goodell, Clifton Linderman and Jack Hough.

Those unable to attend the reunion included Dorothy Smith Briggs; Dorothy Nixon Sedenor; Lorena Perry Presley; and Jim Haynes.
