Linda (Gitzendanner) Hines ’68 enjoyed a visit from IWU classmate Coral (Snyder) Swanson ’68 for 2 ½ days in September. We had a wonderful time together sharing stories about our lives since graduation and reminiscing our fun IWU / AOPII memories.  While Coral was here, we enjoyed visiting some local attractions including the beautiful, 100+ year old Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis, the Anheuser Busch Brewery, and the Missouri Botanical Gardens (see picture).
