1964 We were young. Most of us were still in high school. We lived in and around the City of Saint Louis, in neighborhoods such as Walnut Park and Baden. We planned to go to college or go to work after graduation and few of us thought about what we would be doing in the year 2009.
And in 1964, we became Gluttons. No one had any idea that when we bought and wore our Glutton Sweatshirts; we began something that would last for 45 years.
The Glutton “membership” list, like the Glutton ClubHouse, has undergone many changes in 45 years. Some of our current active members weren’t born in 1964. Most have never been in the Club at 5611 Riverview, or know there was Columbia (Missouri) Branch. Some of us were at the Gluttons Club as recent as last week, some haven’t been there in years, if at all.
But we are all Gluttons, and each of us is a part of the 45-year friendship that makes the Gluttons, perhaps, the most unique organization any of us knows.
We have the opportunity over Memorial Day Weekend, 2009, to once again join together and be Gluttons. If you take a minute or two, and listen, you will hear a little voice: your inner-Glutton. He’s still there, and he knows that you should be at one, or all, of the 45th Anniversary events.
We hope to see you there.
2009 We’re older now and wiser (we think). We’ve come along way in forty-five years. A lot of water had gone under the bridge as have a few of our members.
We invite you to join us once again and relive some of those memories from the glorious days of yesteryear, whether they’re from the old Club on Riverview or the opulent World Headquarters of the International Brotherhood of Gluttons on Jerries Lane in Redman Acres.
We’ve made a lot of improvements in the last few months and hope you will be on hand to see them and help us celebrate 45 years of Gluttony.
