Welcome to WeeklyWilson.com, where author/film critic Connie (Corcoran) Wilson avoids totally losing her marbles in semi-retirement by writing about film (see the Chicago Film Festival reviews and SXSW), politics and books----her own books and those of other people. You'll also find her diverging frequently to share humorous (or not-so-humorous) anecdotes and concerns. Try it! You'll like it!

Alleman’s 50th class reunion was held at the Holiday Inn in Rock Island on Saturday, September 14, 2013. Here are some pictures from the event, with identification if (and only if) I can identify the participants. Since it wasn’t my class, you’ll have to excuse me if I don’t put names under some of the pictures I took that night.
Steve Marlier (Charlotte, NC) and Bob DeJonghe.
If you are a class member, sign up to receive notifications for WeeklyWilson.com, which can be done on the front page. I write about a lot of things of both local, state and national interest.
Craig (far left, obscured), Bob Hafner and a bit of Steve Marlier, in the back of the group photo, which needed risers (or, at least, for the tall guys to go stand in the back.)
The class, en masse, by the elevators. The drinks in the air are Bob Hafner, Craig Wilson and Steve Marlier.
Judy (Fecht) DeJonghe is having way too good a time in this partial photo.
This group (Bob DeJonghe, Craig Wilson and Bob Hafner) is being sent to the office for misbehaving.
Former Silvis Superintendent of Schools Rene Noppe (and my former teaching colleague), who now teaches course for WIU chatting with classmate.
Why does it not surprise me that it is Bob Hafner of Hafner’s Wagon Wheel hodling the drink aloft.
Someone may have just fallen down the elevator shaft, but this group would not have noticed.
No idea who you all are, but I hope you had a good time.
Again, carry on.

3) of the priests in the class appears (just barely) on the far lefthand side of photo.[/caption]
The Mistress of Ceremonies (“St. Anne’s! St. Anne’s! Where are you!”). I think it is Diane Coene Kennedy, but don’t hold me to that. Bravo! Job well done.
One member of the class (far right) appeared to be heading downstairs on the elevator, but, meanwhile, I think there might be a mugging taking place off to the left, given the reaction(s) of the group in that area.
Group nearest the Audio Visual screen.
Craig Wilson (my handsome husband) and the beautiful Susie Marlier. Aren’t you a good-looking class!
