House family gathers at Lakeside Park

On Sunday, August 10, 2014, descendants of the 12 children from the union of Jacob & Augusta (Petzrick) House met at Lakeside Park in Menomonie, WI.

Shirley (Burk) Edgeberg opened our gathering by leading us in singing God Bless America and prayer.

Though our numbers were smaller this year than last, it was a great get-together, and a beautiful day. Those in attendance were: Colin & Judy Hempel-Greenwood, IN; Don & Lynn McIlquham-Bloomer; Don & Arlene Eiseth-Menomonie; Elaine Grutt-Boyceville; Audrey Stendall-Onalaska; Katie Rubusch-Boyceville; Hannah Rubusch-Boyceville; Joann Steinmeyer-Menomonie; Sue Hodgson-Minnetonka, MN; Hazel Jeska Robinson-Minnetonka, MN; Jean Davis-Menomonie; Ray Phillips-Elmwood; Thor & Shirley Edgeberg-Menomonie; Ed & Irene Johnson, Colfax; Sharalyn Edgeberg-Oakdale, MN; Lisa McCann and son, Jack and Tom-Woodbury, MN; Karen & Paul Brown-Kenosha; Aaron, Dianna, Trent & Tessa Wold-Menomonie; Dan and Sharon Wold-Menomonie.

101-year-old Vivian Hempel now in Indiana came with a voice message on Elaine’s cell phone. What a wonderful surprise!

Next year’s reunion will be held at Lakeside Park in Menomonie on Sunday, August 9, 2015.
