He exclaimed, “Yes!” Then, he backtracked with another thought: “Er, I’ll make a decision in six weeks, but don’t write that.” Ubiquitous Kinder was among 300 in a stable of mostly elegant and timeless swells at the Memories and Melodies event atop the Chase Hotel to benefit Memory Care Home Solution (MCHS). “Have you met my florist?,” joshed Joe Werner, who turned to retired Mo.

Iconic royals Mary Lee and Robert Hermann, who were to receive Alzheimer’s Community Service Awards, were glad-handed on their 30th wedding anniversary.

Lisa Baron, who founded MCHS, spoke of the homecare the agency provides those with Alzheimer’s and dementia by offerng social workers and training families to care for the patients. Among the revelers were: Ann and Lee Liberman; George Erker; Betty and David Farrell; Donna Wilkinson; Harris Frank; Patti Disbrow; Marion Black; the St. Louis American’s Donald Suggs; Mary Randolph Ballinger; Julia Barnes and John and Anabeth Weil.
