The Beanblossom reunion took place Oct. 7 to 9 in Walkertown, N.C., at the home of George Wither. It was noted that all of his daughters — Barbara Morris, Pat Goodson, Becky Lasley, Leisa Hillenbrand, Julie Landon and Lore Norman — did a great job feeding three meals to those who attended. Assisting were Barbara’s family, Allison and Karen Morris and Thomas; Pat’s family, Butch and Jon and Brian Fulp; Becky’s family, Walter Lasley; Leisa’s daughter, Emily Gonzales; and Lori’s finance, Scott, and son Grant.
Others who attended from Indiana were Anna Beanblossom, Shelia Jackson, Steve Beanblossom, Jeff and Sherry Shaffer, Ralph and Barbara Sherman, Donnie and Teresa Eschbacher. Attending from Florida were Carol Jean Christian and Allen and Sandy Emert. From Pennsylvania were Sam Fox and Mary Goode. From Virginia were Gary and Carolyn Richard and Amber and Julie Vaughn and son Garrett.
Many games of cornhole were played, there was a bonfire each evening and lots of laughing and sharing of past reunions and departed family members.
Next year’s reunion will be at Jeff and Sherry Shaffer’s home, date to be determined.
