Latest Reunion Update and Activities
Just a few more weeks till the 19th annual Schroeder family reunion. Saturday,
August 14th is the day and we hope to see everyone present at Hart Lake.
Here's a look at how the day's activities are shaping up so far: (I have had
one problem with the reunion activities and details so far and that is that I
haven't got any from anyone. So I took it upon myself to assign activites to
certain families and individuals, if you are unhappy with your assignment,
feel that you could be more helpful doing something else, just don't want to
participate, or just feel that you cannot handle the RESPONSIBILITY, just let
me know and we can make other arrangments,)
The reunion will run from 12:00pm till 8:00pm. The cost for the reunion this year will be $4.00 per adult (anyone over 21 ) and $2.00 per child over 12 years of age (this not does include the cost for food, see dinner schedule for food option). As you enter Hart's Lake just tell them you are with the Schroeder family and then pay Chris Schroeder the appropriate fee for your family when you arrive. 12:00pm

An Oldster's Lament
How do I know that my youth is all spent?
Old age is golden so I've heard it said,
I'm happy to say as I close the door
Now I'm old, my slippers are black
But l really don't mind when I think with a grin
I get up each morning, dust off my wits,
It was a dark and rainy evening in October on the Delaware in Carpentersville, NJ. Andrew Foss and Ervin Jones were sitting in their boat and all was still. Using only trout as bait the next thing Andy knew was he had something. He didn't know what it was but he could tell it was BIG. And BIG is was, a 161b, 29 1/2 inch round catfish. The fish was BIG, so BIG in fact that it won Andy the State Angler's Award. So for those of you always interested in a good fish story ask Andy about it at the reunion.
Quiltus Maximus Here's an idea for next years family reunion and we could continue to do it for years after also. I read it in an article Uncle Jack gave me. How about a family quilt. Each year each family brings a quilt square or two to the reunion then someone will put the quilt together over the year and it will be the grand prize in the 50/50 drawing or as a door prize. I really like he idea! Anybody else?
