Members of the Class of 1942 that met last week: Front row (L to R): Jean Thrall Erickson, Mary Lewis Hawkins, Ethel Waller Ergang. Back row (L to R): Esther Sullivan Bosscher, Virginia Dailey Schumann.
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.

Customers will soon be able to dine outdoors.
The Main Street Restaurant, 151 S. Main Street in Cedar Springs, will be featured on WZZM13’s Sunday morning news, during a breakfast segment.
Regular customers Jerry and Marilyn Moyer, who work at Lakeside Campground, recommended the restaurant, owned by Ron and Arlene Seabolt, for the segment.
A reporter and cameraman met the Moyers at the restaurant Wednesday morning. They interviewed the Moyers and Arlene, and then followed Jerry Moyer into the kitchen, where he was able to help make his breakfast.
A group waves for wzzm13.
The TV station also shot three groups of people (including wait staff) waving and saying, “Hello, West Michigan!”
The segment will air on Sunday morning, July 24, during the last portion of the show, sometime between 6:30 and 7 a.m., and the shots of the people waving will air throughout the 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. show.
Also, coming soon to Main Street—an outdoor eating area! The brick patio has been laid, and it will be about three weeks before it is open to the public. It will have four black wrought-iron tables and chairs for diners who wish to eat outside.

Great food, great company—it’s like eating with family. You know this to be true if you’ve stopped into Cedar Springs’ newest eatery, the Main Street Restaurant.
Family-owned and operated since 2006, Cedar Springs residents Ron and Arlene Seabolt moved the restaurant, formerly called Lickity Split, from Post Drive in Belmont, to its new location at the corner of Main and Muskegon Streets.
The restaurant has a complete menu filled with breakfast, lunch, and dinner favorites including omelets, pancakes, specialty deli sandwiches, fresh paninis, char grilled burgers, salads, appetizers, Mexican food, and much more. Breakfast is served all day, and they also feature a kids menu.
For dessert, Main Street features the award winning Ashby Sterling ice cream, and a selection of frozen custards. From hand-dipped cones to delicious milk shakes and healthy fruit smoothies, you are sure to find something to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Need a quick pick-me-up? They also offer a full service café featuring specialty coffees and teas. From gourmet blends to flavored varieties, they have what you need to start your day off on the right foot. And in case you’d like a roll to go along with your coffee, they have a complete selection of fresh baked goods. Their mouthwatering pastries are all created from scratch and served warm and fresh.
Owners Ron and Arlene invite you in to enjoy the warm and friendly atmosphere at Main Street. Their great food, outstanding service, and relaxed atmosphere will make you want to come back for more!
