Relatives of the late Laurence and Laura Karolczak family gathered for a reunion on Saturday, September 10.
The beautiful setting of the Washington County State Lake, combined with the mild temperatures made for a perfect day to get together.
Those in attendance included Ron and MaryAnn Kimbrough of St. Louis, Rita Liszewski of Radom, Jamie and Warren Sherman of Pinckneyville, Clarence Liszewski of Nashville, Barb and Richard Eater of DuBois, Bernice Winka of Radom, Lorraine Cohen of Clayton, Mo., Dominic Grzegorek of Ashley, Tom and Valerie Whitehead of Arnold, Mo., and Vince Musielak of St. Louis.
It was a fun-filled day, and Rita Liszewski got a great surprise from her cousins, who threw her a retirement party, which she was not expecting at all.
Liszewski received cards, gifts, money and cake. Her cousin Barb Eater even made her a poster, which Liszewski said was beautiful and only one of Barb’s many talents.
Everyone enjoyed their day, and there was lots and lots of laughter and fun had by all.
