Vol. 1998 No. 4 October 18, 1998


The 25th Schroeder reunion is scheduled already!!! Put it on your calendars now! We want everyfamily member to attend this largest and best ever reunion. The date for this fantastic gathering will be Saturday, July 24th, 1999. It will again be held at Oxford Furnace Branch Lake in Oxford, New Jersey. Because 25 years is such a wonderful milestone, this reunion will be catered.

My thoughts are it would be nice to have the reunion go a little longer than this year's was. So if anyone wants to arrive before the usual 12:00 noon hour, we can do that. And maybe Marylou can check to see if it's possible that we pay a little more to have the bathrooms remain open until 8:00 p.m.

Heidi volunteered to look for caterers. She'll probably start after the first of the year. Anyone wishing to have their say in the matter or just to offer her your help, give her a call.


The results of the 24th reunion are as follows: 28 children and 47 adults attended. It didn't rain.

Jessica, Christopher, and Corey won the bubble gum blowing contest for the children. Kim and Jennifer won the adult bubble gum blowing contest. Thanks go Aunt Joan for organizing that event.

Charlie and Lisa took care of the peanut scramble, thank you to them; and Karla, Katelyn, Jessica and Tyler won prizes in the peanut scramble.

Thanks also to Mary Ann for organizing several fun children's games one being a coloring contest of which Tara, Allison Zentgraf,

Jessica and Alyson Cohen won. Thanks to Betsy, Virginia, and BethAnn, who were the judges of the coloring contest.

All the children had fun pulling lollipops from the lollipop tree. Thanks to Karen for that activity.

Thanks to Stephanie, John Jr., and Mark, who brought the pinata. Jessica is the one who finally broke it.

We all once again appreciate Pegge, Jack and Melissa collecting for the 50/50 raffle. I don't remember who won, but they did collect a total of $95, $50 of which went into our operating expenses and $45 was the prize money.

Thanks also to Jack for bringing the pads of paper everybody looks forward to getting.

Thanks also to Nancy Schroeder for helping me write names for door prizes.

And let me express my deepest appreciation to Burns for doing a fabulous job on the auction. Now that we know you have so much talent, Burns, watch out! The auction took in $178.25. Thank you to everybody who brought something to be auctioned.


Starting at ground zero at the time of the reunion, we're looking pretty good now.

The excess money in the treasury will be used for the down payment of a caterer when we hire one for next year's reunion, and will offset the cost for all who attend.
