I can, but I didn’t! Instead, I brought Cherry Upside Down Cake to the family reunion yesterday. (My recipe is here.) We only picked 24 pounds of cherries up in Door County last week, a record low, as we were a bit too late for the best harvest. But it was the only time we could get away for three days in a row; I am a working girl, after all, and have to schedule around my times of teaching, babysitting, and stamp camps.
This was the 77th annual reunion for this branch of DH’s family tree. The first reunion was held to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the family’s settlement in this area. The attendance has dwindled even in the time since I joined the family (25 years ago), and so there was discussion was how to get younger people to come.
Do you have family reunions? Does the “younger generation” have any interest in your family history?
This is the TY card I’m sending to yesterday’s hostess.
