Our journey over the weekend began Thursday as Stanley & Ora Mae Droege and Steve Droege met David Droege in Belleville to begin their travels to Howard & Cindy McHenry’s in Wisconsin to help with their move to Columbia, MO. Our agenda was to load a U-Haul truck on Friday, which was accomplished with a Big help from David. On Saturday morning the driver David & Howard left with the U-Haul. The rest loaded up cars & also journeyed south. Everyone from Wisconsin and Gina Droege met at the McHenry home outside of Columbia, MO on Saturday evening. With extra help from Howard’s family, the large truck was unloaded right away. Steve & Gina Droege, David Droege and Stanley Droege returned home on Sunday. Ora Mae Droege stayed until Tuesday to help out. Buster got to stay overnight with Tiffany Droege, Daisy & Reo.
