Golden Wheat Chapter Picnic

Saturday was our annual picnic of the Golden Wheat Chapter of the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia.

As you enter the room you see our registration table with a display of a sampling of books from our library.

We had a nice size gathering for our indoor picnic. 

 Karen welcomes everyone, especially our guests. The pastor of the church (in the black sweater vest) led us in prayer and blessings for our food.

Always plenty of the best food.

 Don't forget the desert table.

Sondra was there with her Watkins products with sales providing a percentage to the chapter.

Good food, good friends, good conversation. As part of our program we were asked to share a memory of our favorite picnic or family reunion. Some were able to combine both with a picnic at a family reunion. 

Dennis' daughter and her two sons were visiting from London England. What treat!

Ella provided a game having members bring pictures of themselves when they were younger and placed them on a board with a number attached to it. Members were to guess who everyone was and write it on a lined and numbered paper that Ella later graded. Two members were able to identify seven of the nine photos.

Karen gave a report from the library sharing with us two new books and a video that we will watch as a group at a future meeting. She then gave the Convention report.  

Dennis had laptops set up to help people online research at the AHSGR website.

Another successful meeting of the Golden Wheat Chapter AHSGR!
Meeting adjourned on time.
