Boie Family Reunion (2009) 

Submitted by June (Boie) Larson ~  

On July 18th, the Boie semi-annual family reunion was held at Lake Sherwood Lodge in Nekoosa, Wisconsin, and was hosted by the Harvey and Byron Boie Families. 

Ninety-one relatives attended the reunion!  Members come from North Carolina, Texas, Tennessee, Minnesota, and many Wisconsin locations. 

It was a happy day for everyone!  There were lots of hugs, family news was exchanged and relatives got acquainted and re-acquainted with each other. 

Robin Mohr wrote a "Boie" song which we all sang with gusto!  Pauline Boie led us in prayer and also remembered those not present.  A fun quiz was given to each new arrival and it was given much thought and attention. 

Accommodations were terrific everywhere! Name tags and sign-in sheets were available as guests were greeted upon arrival.  A pavilion was available for visiting and refreshments.  What a groaning, beautiful banquet of food (a feast fit for kings!) was arranged by the resort. 

The hosts, Rich and Carol Boie and family, Russ and Paulette Boie and family, Gary, Cindy and Eric Boie, with Ron and Janet Boie, should receive an Oscar for their portrayal of our ancestors!  Those portrayed were Grandpa John; daughter, Lillian; sons, George, Oscar and Harry; and various other family members.  The costumes, portrayal, personalities, and descriptions were absolutely terrific!  We loved every minute of it.  We will enjoy the snapshots and videos forever. 

Pontoon rides on Sherwood Lake were enjoyed by many adults and especially by the children. 

Also, our hats are off to Carol, Paulette, Mary and Yvonne for a difficult but wonderful job of compiling a complete family history.  Lots of hours on e-mail and telephones were helpful in gathering the information from everyone, near and far.  Yvonne typed all the pages into a pamphlet, had it printed, and 72 people are enjoying a copy.  A wonderful accomplishment and a big, sincere thanks to all who participated in this project. 

People reluctantly left for home at sunset and the "over nighters" gathered at the summer home of Russ and Paulette for a bonfire.  Twenty or so people encircled the fire enjoying stories, jokes, and visiting.  Later, we enjoyed marshmallows, brats, and wieners roasted over the fire.  What a wonderful day! 

A sincere thanks to the "brothers three," their wives and family members for a terrific reunion. 

The next family reunion will be held in Thorp, Wisconsin and hosted by Norval and Mae’s family: Chuck, Connie, Janice, Dale and Duane.  See you there!  Don’t miss it!
