On Monday, May 7, the fifth annual Telephone Operators, Installation and Repairmen Reunion was held in the Lincoln Room at Ponderosa Steakhouse in Vandalia.
The 33 in attendance included 21 operators, six repairmen and six spouses.
Delila Beckman welcomed everyone, and Loretta Nickels gave the meal prayer.
After the meal, everyone was asked to introduce themselves and their guests, and tell when and where they had worked for Illinois Bell.
The sharing of stories was a popular part of the reunion.
