The descendants of Josef and Magdalena Hauptman Kalich held their 48th annual reunion on April 26 in St. John with 116 people in attendance. Josef and Magdalena Kalich immigrated to the United States and were early settlers of Fayette County. Their six children and families - Joseph and Ludmilla Kalich, Franz and Mary Kalich, Rudolph and Annie Kalich Kretschmer, Edward and Marie Kalich, Stefan and Bertha Kalich, and Anton and Mary Kalich - settled throughout Central Texas.
President Rodney Kalich opened the meeting and a moment of silence was observed for the family members who passed away during the past year: Jerry Dittlinger, Marvin Stanchos, Tommy John, Jr., and Pauline Neslony.
Rodney expressed thanks to Lil Langville for her donation of stamps and to Kevin and Rhonda Kalich for designing and printing the reunion notice.
