Vol. 1988 No. 1   March 18, 1988


The annual 24th Schroeder reunion has been scheduled for 12:00 noon, August 8, 1998, at Oxford Furnace Branch Lake in Oxford, New Jersey. Mark your calendars today!!! The cost will be approximately $15 to $20 per family. The amenities include: a dock for fishing, (you may bring a boat), a sandy beach for swimming, a covered pavilion, nice bathrooms, and a small playground. And as usual, in all public locations, no consumption of alcoholic beverages is permitted.

The survey responses resulted in a change in our menu this year. The majority voted that each family be responsible for their own main meal, and we share desserts. Therefore, do as you will. You are allowed to bring grills to the lake for cooking. There is an option to rent a grill there, if anyone is interested in this, let me know and we'll try to arranqe it.


I last reported I had received $52 and some stamps. I have since received $77 from another nine people. Someone actually sent me $30!!! That person is a long distance call, so that allows me to call him and get information. So that brings the total to $129. Thank you for all the responses and money. I'll have enough now to buy some door prizes for the reunion. If you're wondering why the price of the reunion has gone up a little, it's so that the editor of the newsletter (whoever that may be next year) can start off in the black instead of in the red and begging for money. By the way, this wasn't just the idea of the editor, it was decided and agreed upon by a committee.


Thank you for all the responses. I received 29 responses. Question 1 - Where should the reunion be held? Winning response - A lake with a pavilion - specifically mentioned Furnace Branch Lake. Question 2 - What should we do about food? Winning response - Everybody brings their own main meal and we share desserts. Thanks again for all the responses.
