September 2000 Reunion Recap
The food committee reports that there was enough food for everyone at the reunion so the initial estimates were pretty good. 1 lb meat / 1 lb cheese for every 5 people. The only real excess were condiments. What do you do with a 1/2 gallon of miracle whip? There are platters / plates and napkins in storage for next year.
Its too early to think about a schedule for next year!
Happy Anniversary! A 40th wedding anniversary party was held by their offspring after the reunion at the Independence Club in Easton,Pa. Friends and family attended it. Everyone had a good time.
The Schroeder Reunion Website is moving to a new home at:
The webmaster is in the process of updating the site. More photos, the long awaited photo captioning form, search engine and better family tree. Unfortunately the schroeder.org domain name is still not available (neither was foss.com which is why it is lfoss.com).
The entertainment committee met after the reunion. They are considering making the theme of next year's reunion a carnival and replacing the auction with carnival games (ring toss, dart gallery, prize wheel etc). One idea was to make each family of the original nine responsible for a game or provide the prizes for each game.

The 11 minute 'cut 2' version was previewed at the reunion and Joan and Burn's anniversary party. Thanks to Lloyd and Carolyn Foss for supplying the 8mm movie footage. Copies were requested and as soon as they are available they will be sent out (Hopefully in time for Christmas). The first movie has been redigitized in better focus but has not been put into the working copy yet. The transfer system purchased at the reunion auction should help with the next 6 reels.
