On August 2, 2015, we held our 49th annual reunion. We had 64 in attendance. A potluck lunch was enjoyed. We then celebrated Marge Epplins birthday, as she was the oldest and had turned 87 on August 1.
Kinleigh Ann Barton, seven month old daughter of Dustin Barton was the youngest. The families coming from Sparta, IL. Traveled the furthest.
We enjoyed the day renewing friendships and talking about the past. Over the year we lost Margie Langa, She had helped start the reunion. We also lost Zachary Epplin, son of Doug and Beverly Epplin.
