The Fourth Annual Reunion of the Witmer families met on the last Sat. in Aug. [1923] with Dan Fry and family south of Savannah.
            About ninety enjoyed the fine picnic dinner which was served in the barn floor.
            After dinner the Pres. Called us to order and we conducted our business meeting.  The minutes were read and approved.  The bills were presented and accepted.
            At the invitation of Aunt Em we decided to meet with her on the last Sat. in Aug.  Letters were read from Uncle Martin and Aunt Clara.

  1. How neat that you are keeping a family record! I have an aunt who research ours back to the 1600's and I consider it a treasure.
    Thankyou for your comment on my post. No, I don't have any undeveloped film. I love all our old pictures. Family is the heart of who we are.

    Ps. It's neat to see you are from Ashland!
