DuBois Family Reunion
October 19-20, 2013
The DuBois Family Biennial Reunion brought together thirty cousins
for a Friday evening reception and a busy Saturday. Friday evening
we enjoyed wine and cheese and a sharing of family memories. Saturday,
we began the day with a church service with the Reverend William
Schnitzer as pastor and Sally DuBois at the harpsichord. Then
there were house tours given by well informed guides. Right after
an excellent luncheon, we heard Ms. Mary Etta Schneider, Chairperson
of the HHS Board of Directors, discuss changes and new directions.
Mid-afternoon, we went into a planning session and ended the day
with a business meeting.
For those of you who came in late:
