Virginia, Phyllis, Mary, and Joan enjoyed seeing the Nicholas and Alexandra Exhibit in Wilmington, DE and Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA.

Mary got in some birding at the Waterman Conservation Education Center Elderhostel near Owego, NY, west of Binghamton. one of the days was spent "orienteering" on Hiawath Island on the north branch of the Susquehanna River.

Mary visited "Wheatland", President Buchanan's home, while attending an Elderhostel week at Precious Blood Spiritual Center between Lancaster and Columbia, PA.

During the recent grand opening of Boscov's Store in the Palmer Park Male in Easton, Mary enjoyed two shows featuring Tony Martin and Anna Marie Alberghetti. Mary has no travel plans until January when she and Joan take a nine-day bus tour to Florida.

All the Foss men went on an annual hunting trip to Maine the second week of November. Unfortunately, I don't have the results of the hunt. Hey Foss men - please report back!

Lloyd Sr. celebrated his birthday in October by having a party with all of his kids and grandchildren present - all 18 of them and 7 more if you count in-laws.

Carolyn, Lisa, and Jennifer are going on a cruise in November. It's a bingo cruise around Manhattan. We get to play bingo for cash on the way there, enjoy a dinner cruise around Manhattan, and play a few more cards of bingo on the way home.

Skip just recently had orthoscopic surgery on his knee. He's out of work on disability. Get well, Skip!

Casey has been working at a nursery school in Belvidere, NJ. It's called Little Cedars and she thinks this may be her career.

Corey just finished field hockey season. As a goalie, she enjoyed playing often throughout the first half of the season. Unfortunately she became injured and didn't see much time towards the end of the season. Better luck next year, Corey!

Jennifer and Marylou attended the NJ School Board Association conference in Atlantic City in October. They stayed at the Hilton and really enjoyed the sessions, the receptions, and of course the craps table (Jennifer) and money wheel (Mary Lou).

December 1998


Dear Schroeder Family,

Sorry about the newsletter getting out a little late this month. It has been one of the busiest times in our lives.

After having had our house on the market for 18 months, we finally got a contract on it on December 5th. The closing date the buyer chose is January 30th. So consequently Dan and I and the girls have been house-hunting like crazy. I never knew it could be so tiring. Not to mention the fact that it's Christmas time and I'm always crazy at this time of year anyway with the holidays and Karla's and Tara's birthday. They turn seven and five this year.

So we. searched and searched, and finally we put a contract in for a house in Crofton. Maryland. We haven't heard f rom the sellers yet as to whether they'll accept our offer, but we're keeping our fingers crossed. Let me tell you, it's hard to type with your fingers crossed!

Anyway, I did the newsletter in only a day, no time for calls to get news this time. Thanks to Jennifer for all her wonderful news on the Foss family.

I'd like to wish each and every one of you a safe and blessed Christmas season, and an extremely happy New Year!!
