Family meets at reunion
The annual Beinke-Luers reunion was held on Sunday, June 22, at Bethel Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, in rural Sigourney. President Marilyn Luers welcomed those attending and Edwin Luers asked the blessing before the cooperative meal.
After dinner, Sophie and Colton Lowe demonstrated some of their Tae Kwon Do skills. Milo Luers shared highlights of minutes from reunions held the past 81 years. He asked Marilyn Luers to read the life story of his Uncle Henry Luers. Following discussion of the updated family tree information, it was decided to proceed with plans for printing. Any information to be included must be received by the end of 2014.
Those who attended were Milo Luers of Washington; Loren Turnipseed and Luke Turnipseed of South English; Betty Hall, Sophie and Colton Lowe of Iowa City; Marilyn Luers, Lonnie Luers, Kevin and Pam Luers, Bradley Luers, Bryant Luers, Natalie Luers, Edwin and Rita Luers, Will and Melissa Luers, Anna, Will S. and Isaiah Luers, Keota; Lynnae Callison, Cayden and Carson Callison of Ventura.
As was determined in 1935, the next reunion will be on the fourth Sunday of June in 2015. Officers will be Marilyn Luers, president; Myron Luers, vice president; and Rita Luers, secretary-treasurer.
