Vol. 1999 No. 4   June 23, 1999

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR - The editor has not had a good start to the summer season. I suffered through almost three weeks of poison ivy, now I stabbed my thumb and only have two stitches, but it's still put me behind on the newsletter and my work. Please forgive me for the lateness of this and shortened version.

THE 25TH SCHROEDER REUNION - Saturday, July 24th, 1999, is still the date for our Schroeder Reunion at Oxford Furnace Branch Lake in Oxford, New Jersey. The time is from Noon, or earlier if you arrive earlier, until 7:30 p.m. Flynn's will be our caterer. The menu is starting at Noon with chips, pretzels, cheese tray, relish tray, and clam chowder with crackers. From 1:00 to 5:00 will be hamburgers, chicken, sausage, pasta salad, and cucumber salad. All attendees please bring your own beverages and a dessert to share. And anyone wishing to enter their dessert into the yummy baked goods cooking contest may sign up upon arrival. The cost for food and use of the pavilion is $11 per adult (and children over 10 years old) and $5 per child (10 years old and younger). I have heard some grumbling about this price. However, please keep in mind that last year you paid $4.00 per adult and $2.00 per child with no food. So in reality you're only paying $7.00 more for adults for food and $3.00 more for children for food over last year's price. And we'll have a longer period of time, because Aunt Carolyn was able to convince the management at the lake to let us stay until 7:30!!! THANK YOU AUNT CAROLYN!!

The surprise guests had to decline to attend this year (Hillary is busy campaigning in New York) but they said they will try to come next year.

RSVP FOR THE REUNION BY JULY 1ST TO KIM -- PLEASE!!! I need to know how many adults and children to tell the caterer.
