LeMaster Family Reunion

We held our annual family reunion last night at my parent's place.  It was good to see my aunts, uncles and cousins that I otherwise do not see.  The weather held out as the rain was only in the morning.  This year my nieces helped create some games for the kids.  I believe the pumpkin seed spitting contest was the crowd favorite!

Not everyone could make it, but those that did had a good time and plenty of food. I was able to get some photographs and make some memories.  The evening wasn't as condusive for genealogy questions as I would have liked.  I will have to make some visits and phone calls to get answers to my questions.

I did hear some discussion as to how long we had been having these reunions, and I believe I heard 1974 or 1976.  So hopefully there are some older pictures out there for me to find.  

I posted more photos of the reunion at Facebook.  A public link is here.
