Prizes were then awarded to the oldest lady, Evelyn Janyssek; oldest gentleman, Buddy Wolff; youngest child, Kinley Leist; longest married couple, Buddy and Shirley Wolff; longest distance traveled, Nancy Bostick; first time attendee, Jacob Schoener; kid’s prize, Hayden Leist; main door prizes to Douglas Vogel and Georgia Matejek.
A live auction was then held to raise funds for next year’s reunion which will be held Oct. 30, 2016 at the same location.
