Hello and Welcome to this Blog! It’s dedicated mainly to news about the Druck Family – no matter how near or far we are. I’ve decided to create another blog devoted to my personal activities: www.boonvillebeat.wordpress.com – problem is, I haven’t had time to update it yet. But please be patient! Stop by and visit often. Hopefully, you’ll find something that interests you.
For now, I’d like to post some details about the upcoming Druck Family Reunion, planned for Sunday, July 25, at Salem Lutheran Church Picnic Grove, from noon to 4 p.m. We’ve rented the building beginning at 11 a.m. , so you can come any time after that (thanks to my sistrer Bobbi J. Druck Kehr, for taking care of that detail)!
What’s new this year? As a fundraiser (we have to pay the rent, you know!) someone on the committee suggested an auction. We’re calling it a Heritage Auction!
Here is some information provided by our reunion secretary, Kathie Gettle Boop:
“People buy tickets and then place their tickets in bags that are with each item…we pull a ticket from each bag and the person gets the item. I think many people would be willing to donate an item or two. . .it can be anything, because everyone liks something different. If an item seems very expensive, we can specify that winning that item requires 2 or 3 tickets. We can even mention who donated the item if people would like. Hopefully people would want to buy tickets for a chance to win something displayed that interests them…we [could] do $1 a ticket or 8 for $5, ect. to encourage people to buy more…
Nice, gently used items are ok. For example: I will have a bucket full of car care products. Someone who makes great cookies could have a dozen in a baggie. A basket of bath products is a nice item, or some craft that someone does. A gift card to any place local. Bottles of wine, homemade or purchased. A box of often used groceries. We have even had people put out an envelope with cash inside.”
So, there you have it, folks! Lots of ideas.
It will be lots of fun. But don’t feel obligated! Just come with your family and plan to have a good time!
