Reunion: August 14

SCHROEDER FAMILY REUNION has been set for the second Saturday in August at Hart Lake again this year. We are looking for ideas for acitivites, events, whatever at this year's reunion. Here a few of the ideas already received:

1) A White Elephant Auction - people bring a gift wrapped and labeled, ie. adult male, small child, etc. Then we auction them off among everyone. It's fun!

[AUG 2) Let's Make a Deal Game - again people bring smaU gifts and we use them as prizes for a Let's Make a Deal look-alike game.


4) Murder Mystery - people play different characters and act out and try to deterrnine who the murderer is. If you like and of these ideas or have new and exciting ideas please let me know. All ideas are welcome!

A New Look

The Executive Committee has appointed me, Caroline Foss SMITH, to be Temporary Editor of the SCHROEDER FAMILY REUNION NEWS BULLETIN commencing with this issue and continuing until this year's Reunion (August 1 4th). At that time the membership will be polled to determine whether or not the foregoing appointment was suitable and whether or not the News Bulletin is still worthwhile. It is a pleasure to serve as the temporary editor of our newsletter. For this issue I sent a copy only to the nine brothers/sisters, aunts/uncles, (however you look at it) and asked them to pass it on to their family members. For anyone who would like to receive the newsletter directly, please forward me a note with a correct address enclosed. I would be happy to send the newsletter to anyone interested but would also like to receive news from the people who receive it. I would like to send out a newsletter every other month if possible. Do we have that much news? Well, your comments and news are welcome.


Happy Birthday!!

The other day, while 5 year old Jessica Foss was sewing with her grandmother, she said "We're just two old grandmothers sitting around sewing aren't we Gram." Then she asked her grandmother to tie another piece of yam to the end of her thread. Her grandmother asked "Why don't you start a new piece so you won't have a knot in your yam." Jessica answered, "That's OK grandma, sometimes I~just lump along and sometimes I just smooth along." To that her grandmother replied, "Don't we all, Don't we all."
