91st. Custer Reunion

                  Dorothy, Vera, Mildred and Harold have all passed on,
                                        but their families came.

Was held in Ivester Park, Arcanum, Ohio Sunday June 26, 2016.  Very hot, muggy day.  Had two fans running in the cabin in the park, surrounded by shade trees.  Wasn't too bad, as long as you were just sitting.

We once again had plenty of food.  But  stick of butter I sit out on a paper plate with some bread, melted very quickly.

We had a cousin I haven't seen since she was probably a teenager, Linda Kay (Holsapple) Martin and her husband Randy came this year. (Mildred's Granddaughter)

Also my cousin Dawaine and wife Doris Jean Holsapple (Mildred's son and daughter-in-law)
Steve & Renda Alexander (Dorothy's son and daughter-in-law)
Scot and Elizabeth Alexander and four of their five children, Christian, Luke, Noah, and Grace. (Dorothy's Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren)
Beverly Borger and daughter Kimberly Cost (Vera's daughter and Granddaughter)
Patty Lincoln and daughter Becky Lincoln (Harold's daughter and Granddaughter)
Sonny & Eva Custer (Harold's son and daughter-in-law)
Heather (Custer) and husband Wesley Wackler Sr. and their children, Wesley Wackler Jr., Elliott and Lydia (Harold's Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren)
Shawn Custer (Harold's Grandson)
Their cousin Eric Smith and wife Darlene plus their son Alex

Steve gave the prayer before we ate.  I told Heather next year, we need to take a photo before we eat, since it seems as though everyone scatters to do their own thing after we eat.  We haven't taken a family group photo in some time now.

Collection was taken up.  We had to repay Heather for paying the rent last year for this year and also make sure we had enough to pay for 2017.  We had $21.00 in the kitty, collected enough to make a total of $79.00, rent for this year $35.00 and next year (2017)  $35.00 leaving a balance to start off 2017 of $9.00.

Some played Bingo, some of us just set around and talked.  We will hold it again next year, the fourth Sunday in June, same place, same time.  Hope to see you all there and also hope it's a lot cooler.
