For the first time in many years the decendants of the William Vollrath family held a reunion at the Ernest Vollrath home Saturday, August 12.

Special merit was being noted as the family kept in continuous Vollrath ownership through the entire century. Also, in addition to the present owners, RAndy and Linda Vollrath, receiving a certificate in recognition of the century ownership, the previous owners, Kenneth and Janis Vollrath and Ernest and Adeline Vollrath, received like certificates. It is not common to have that many previous owners living at the time of marking century ownership.

The Wisconsin State Fair and the State of Wisconsin is in charge of making the presentation of certificates of century ownership.

Those present for the reunion in addition to the above named from Greenwood were Clara Metcalf, Ida Spiech, Violet Spiech, Bertha Dalman, Eleanor Plank, Les and Janene Backus and children, Holly and Wade, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Klunder, Mrs. Harry Webber, Lila Stabnow and Al and Linda Dallman and children, Rhonda, Brenda and Ben.
