Reunion: August 14
The SCHROEDER FAMILY REUNION is still set for the second Saturday in August, that being the 14th. And luckily this year there won't be any conflict with the CHB reunion, so we should have a lot of happy campers.
Due to the overwhelming response to the reunion activity ideas, the activities committee has had to make some tough decisions as to what ideas to keep and what ideas not to use this year. Of course, there is nothing set in stone but the preliminary lineup looks something like this:
12:00pm Set up,
greetings, drinks, etc.
If anyone has additional ideas, questions, comments please feel free to write, fax, phone them over to me. Activity assignments will be handed out in the next newsletter.

Karl & Jean Celebrate 40 years together!!
There've been 40 years of marriage bliss,
All started with a single kiss.
Through times of joy and sorrow too,
They loved each other through and through.
You could see it as they danced their dance,
Through a simple gesture, or simple glance.
Our wish for them is many more,
As least as happy as those before.

You can keep track of the age of spices by marking the date of purchase on a strip of masking tape and sticking it to the bottom of the container. .
Happy Birthday 2U!
