It's been 30 years since St. Joseph's Hospital in Alton closed, and some former employees are planning a reunion. Past employees are invited to gather at the Trap House at the Alton - Wood River Sportsmen's Club on Sunday from 1-6pm. There's no RSVP necessary, you are just asked to bring a snack or appetizer, and your own beverages.

Mary Jo Sinclair worked at the hospital for years, and is now organizing the reunion. She tells The Big Z their Facebook group got the ball rolling.

There will be a collection taken up to offset expenses. Saint Anthony’s Hospital acquired St. Joseph’s Hospital in 1989 and renamed the facility Saint Clare’s Hospital. You can find the event's Facebook page here.
