Beinke-Luers family holds reunion
On June 30, the Beinke-Luers family met at Bethel Methodist Church fellowship hall for the family's 80th reunion. President Marilyn Luers welcomed everyone and asked the blessing before the co-operative meal was enjoyed. Those who have attended most of the reunions through the years shared some of their memories.
Thanks were expressed to Dean W. Luers, who compiled the information in the family tree book published in 1974, and provided annual updates since then. Betty (Bakehouse) Hall has taken that information and hopes to have a new book available next year. Any who have information that should be included, please call 319-639-2417 so the information can be complete by the end of 2013.
Those who attended were Albert and Ruth (Luers) Conrad of Sigourney; Dean W. and Maymie Luers, Milo Luers and Adele McPike of Washington; Betty (Bakehouse) Hall of Iowa City; Marilyn Luers, Kevin and Pam Luers, Bradley Luers, Bryant Luers, Lonnie and Dixie Luers, Korrah Luers, Edwin and Rita Luers, Will and Melissa Luers, Anna, Will Samuel and Isaiah of Keota.
Officers next year will be Marilyn Luers, president; Myron Luers, vice president; and Rita Luers, secretary-treasurer. The 2014 reunion will be on June 22 at Bethel.
