53 Attend VPR Reunion in Branson, MO

Fifty-Three (53) Victoria Palms Resort Winter Texans from the Midwest (IA, IL, KS, MO, MT, NE, SD) enjoyed a four (4) day reunion in Branson, MO on June 24-28, 2019.  The Committee of Lois Niemann, Emily Nolting, Rex Kirchhoff & Larry Schmitt organized this annual event.


Organized events included the stay at the Camden Hotel and Conference Center, which provided a great place to sleep, enjoy a continental breakfast, hangout for cards or conversation, as well as the evening cobbler and ice cream. We enjoyed a tour and superb lunch at the College of the Ozarks. We saw an awesome show, Sampson at the Sight and Sound Theatre. Many also went on the golf cart tour at the Lost Canyon Cave Tour at the Top of the Rock. Beautiful scenery for sure!!!


The surprise of the 3 days was a fabulous evening dinner at the Black Oak Grill on the Landing. With only 3-hour notice, the manager and staff pulled off a great feast of meal and lots of fun for 47 of us. We highly recommend on your next trip to Branson, go eat there!! There was plenty of time remaining for each to do “their own thing, as in other forms of entertainment or choice of restaurants…. plenty of which are available in Branson”.
