I hope everyone is excited and plans to attend this year's reunion. It has been a busy year for everyone. There are many new people to visit and lots of new s to pass along. Following is a list of important information, events and assigned responsibilities.

WINE & CHEESE  -  Carl and Jean Schroeder. Any family with children over the age of 18 is asked to bring a "wine," those familes with children under the age of 18 are asked to bring a "cheese" and those families with no children are asked to bring "crackers."

BOOK EXCHANGE - Carolyn Foss. Bring any unwanted paper backs, cookbooks, childrens books, etc. and exchange them to some you want!

FREEBIE TABLE - Jack Schroeder. Bring your junk and try to get rid of it!

CARD GAMES - Cliff Sutton. Pull up chair and try your hand.

CHILDREN'S GAMES - Joan Bamford Games for kids of all ages.

BINGO - Caroline Smith, Virginia Sutton and numbers callers, Ed Schroeder and Lloyd Foss, Sr. We need an event each year that will help us raise money for door prizes, postage for the newsletter, etc. This year the event choosen was BINGO. Each family is asked to bring a nice white elephant gift again (as we did last year for the auction) but this time it does not have to be wrapped. These gifts will then be placed on the Bingo prize table. There will be a $2.00 charge for each Bingo card played. Good Luck and Good Fun!!! (If you are asking yourself, "Why Bingo?" Well, I will tell you why. I love Bingo and have loved Bingo every since John Sutton was a little boy. Aunt Virginia would always have us play Bingo at the cottage on his birthday. It was so exciting! The most exciting of course was the coverall. I won the coverall just once. Just once. I won the grand prize. Mine was an ash tray. A ceramic clown ashtray. And oh, how I loved that ashtray..)

VOLLEYBALL- Lloyd Foss, Jr. and Pat Lou Schroeder. No room here for the tender hearted.

QUATES/HORSESHOES - Andrew Foss and Phil Foss. Bring whatever you can find.

Mary Lou Unangst organized a nice week long family vacation at the beach in early July. She rented a house on Long Beach Island and various members of the Foss family came and went for the week. Tylor Foss was quite the fish and loved the ocean. Dan and I and our kids also had a fun time and built in baby-sitters!

Another great swimmer in the making I hear is Kelsey Schroeder. I guess she'll be giving her aunt a run for her money soon.

Chris Schroeder is making progress on her disertation "Consulting Roles in Group Homes" and will finish in May 1995.
