Man has been to the moon and back. Most homes have several television sets, DVD players, computers, and I-pods. We buy water in bottles, and our phones don’t have to be plugged in.
But some things have remained the same in the Branch 177 meetings of Western Catholic Union in the Zell/Ste Genevieve area. Many members have been active in the local branch for decades.
This year these members celebrated anniversaries with the WCU. In the front row from left to right: Bernice Naeger (60 years), Bernice Bauman (60 years), Victor Jokerst (60 years), Rev. James Hansen (50 years), and Francis Huber (60 years).
Branch 177 is active in supporting local charities, especially helping St. Joseph Church and School in Zell, Missouri.
