Editor: Nancy L. Sheck

To: Schroeder Family Network: From: Nancy L. Sheck,22325 Ridge Rd., Germantown, Maryland 20874

The Reunion Committee has decided that since this is the year of the Branch that we will feature one branch per news bulletin. Please send any history and news of your members to the Editor.

The Editor has compiled over eighty birthdays that cover ninety years. See me (Nancy) if your name is missing.

This year we are honoring Helene Storm as our oldest living member. Helene was born on Feb. 8, 1899 and is a sister to Caroline Koch.

Our youngest member to the family is Philip A. Foss Jr. who was born March 1 l989.

Also I have compiled the current address page which covers thirty three places. If you need this list for your Christmas cards please see the Editor during the Reunion.

For all you Family Tree buffs the Research Committee has been able to expand it backwards for TEN generations. See Uncle Karl or Uncle Tom about the new findings.

Another news column I would like to see is of Great and Favorite Schroeder recipes. Please send yours to the Guest Editor. For this month we feature Nancy Sheck's Beef Stroganoff.

1 1/2 lbs. sirloin cut into thin strips
2 onions, chopped
1/2 lb msushrooms
1 clove garlic, minced
4 TB butter
2 TB flour
1 can consomme soup (don't dilute)
1/2 - 3/4 pint sour cream
1 teaspoon paprika
1 TB Worcestershire sauce

      Dredge meat with flour, salt
and pepper. Saute the 2 onions,
mushrooms, garlic in 4 TB of butter
about 5 min. Add the sirloin and a
little butter if needed. Have pan
good and hot at this point. Stay
with the masterpiece and toss until
browned. This is a quick process
(about 3 min): you want the steak
to be underdone at this point. Lift
out the meat and mushrooms. There
should be about 2 TP of drippings
left. Pour off the extra or add as
needed. Blend in 2 TH of flour in
fat. Add 1 can consomme Coup. Stir
until thickened. Then add sour
cream - salt and pepper to taste.
Deep heat LOW. Add paprika,
Worcestershire sauce and meat. Heat
a few more mins. and serve with
rices peas, hot rolls and salad.
Bon appetit!

For directions to the Reunion: For those of you coming from South Side they are as follows:

At the Old Stoney Inn in Glendon, turn RIGHT onto Island Park Drive.
Stay on Island Park Drive for several miles (at least 4-5), go past Ashland
Chemicals and the SPCA, and Pichel's Corn Stand (good corn),
when Island Park Drive comes to an end at the stop sign, go LEFT---follow
sign to Hellertown
Go to the next stop sign and go straight (this is the junction of
Hellertown and Lower Saucon Rd.) You want to be on Lower Saucon Road.
Go about one mile and look for flags and signs on the right for Marlin
Lake; it is right past a tire store on the right.
