The trip was delayed, due to illness in Rosey’s
immediate family. Everyone is fine now, and so we
plan to be on our way the first week of October.

The October meeting will still be on, Renee Bunck will
see that the meeting room is open — Just don’t let
Claire’s cats out when you enter or leave. They are
people friendly anymore and the outside looks so
inviting to them.

Jeff has a marvelous program on tap for everyone. He
has really been working hard all summer to get it ready.
Join him and learn some new tricks on family history,
his way!

How can one ancestor cause so much TROUBLE?
After 30 days, unclaimed ancestors will be adopted.


One of the most enjoyable Hallowe'en parties was given
by Misses Ada Helne and Clara Buchholz at the home of
the former. The guests were invited to come arrayed in
sheets and pillow cases and by 9 o’clock the rooms
were filled with a ghostly party. Great merriment was
caused by trying to distinguish each other, while the
hostess required each one to perform all sorts of antics.
Various charms were tried and fortunes told. Later on a
pillow case filled with cabbage stalks was passed and
each boy was requested to draw one when he would find
the name of his partner for supper tied to the stalk.
The guests were then invited into the dining room
where a welcome sight met the eyes, a huge pumpkin
filled with fruit adorned the center of the long table,
while at either end cabbage heads filled with salad were
placed surrounded by autumn leaves which decorated
the whole table, other good things were there which the
guests fully appreciated. Varied were the fortunes told
by the “fortune” cakes. The prizes won during the
evening were obtained by Miss Sidner and Mr Kusel .
