Swiss Valley Park, Dubuque, Iowa, USA
15th July 2000
The reunion was a great one again this year. We had a few new faces that weren't there last year. We also had some new editions that weren't born yet last year. The newest edition was just born the week of the reunion, and the oldest one there was 87. We just did a kind of "visiting" type of reunion this year where everyone just got to know each other better. We had lots of food, fun, and laughs. The dinner consisted of ham, potato salad, green beans, baked beans, coleslaw, buns, and tons of desserts; my Dad, his wife and I prepared the meal. We had 2 fellows get their guitars out and play and sing to us. They were good too. We did the guessing game of how many potatoes we cooked up for the potato salad. It was 50 lbs. We also did a gumball guessing game for the kids. We had an auction again this year and it was a huge success. We raised $812.04 and it will be used towards next years reunion. Sadly to say I won't be doing it next year. I have handed it over to someone else because it got to be too much for me to do alone.
