14th annual Kachermeyer and Dorler reunion held

The 14th annual Kachermeyer/Dorler family reunion was held on Saturday, Aug. 17 at Point Gratiot. Henry and Faith (Kachermeyer) DiLorenzo hosted the affair, assisted by Juanita and Sheila Mazany. There were 65 family members and guests in attendance. One family member traveled from Michigan to join the festivities. Ms. Lorraine Bardwell attended; she is the oldest living family member. Everyone enjoyed the delicious food and fun activities, including a bounce house for the children. There was also a Chinese auction, a 50/50 drawing, and a bidding auction which is held at every reunion to fund the next year’s party. Though several family members could not make it this year due to prior commitments, it is hoped that they will all be able to attend next year’s reunion on Aug. 16, 2014. Special thanks goes out to Sheila, who has grown into the best auctioneer the family could ask for.
