31 people attended the dinner meeting at the Peking Restaurant in Fremont, Ohio on April 6th. The weather was very nice with clear skies, light winds and 68 degrees. Finally, a nice spring day. Don and Marlene Tornow and Fay Martin hosted the event. We had a separate room all to ourselves which made it nice to catch up on events over the winter. The tables were decorated with stuffed frogs, Frog Easter eggs, frog key chains, and frog notebook and pencil holders. Thanks to Fay and Marlene on a
wonderful job with the decorations.
In attendance were Chuck and Diane Beavers, Craig and Cindy Becher, Dave and Deb Brenner, Fred Bretloff, Ralph and Shirley Griffin, Cris and LeAnna Hastin, Bill and Barbara Henning, Dan and Sue Hoile, Howard and Pat Jones, Fay Martin, Clyde and Janet Michael, Don and Patty Prey, Ray and Diane Radabaugh, Lawrence and Karen Stein, Don and Marlene Tornow, and Dale and Sharon Viers.
It was great catching up on all the happenings of everyone over the winter months. Some went to Arizona, Texas and Florida, but most stayed home and braved the cold winter. Arizona was cool and rainy this year and not very warm. Florida was hot with above average temperatures. Texas was mostly warm with a few cool days. Four or five rigs made it to Texas which seems to be the popular place to go. Brenner’s built a pole barn. The Amish built it in two days – now that is fast. Henning’s went to Florida for a week to attend spring-training baseball. The people who stayed in Ohio did not have much to say about their winter – other than it was cold, rainy and snowy – and wished they were somewhere else.
Thanks to Sue and Dan Hoile for doing the Newsletter this month. See you in May.
