The Windhausen Gazette
I have been thinking of some things about the reunion and of things to maybe vote on or talk about.
Does anyone like the idea of some other type of reunion other than a picnic or in addition to a picnic? Or might it be a
good idea to have say, a two day reunion.
Some families meet and take vacations such as cruises or some other type of trip or rental type place at a beach or resort.
Do any of these things sound interesting?
How about putting together a family cookbook? If someone would like to do it and compile it for a printer or we could be
less extravagant and just compile them ourselves. i think it would be a lot of fun and a wonderful keepsake if we could have
some family favorites.
Any other ideas????
I understand Rusty made another afghan to be raffed so bring your money to buy some chances. You know what beautiful work
he does. And if you haven't seen his work, you are in for a big treat.
