The Mackereth family picnic was held Saturday, Aug. 25, at the George and Louise Mackereth homestead with more than 140 people attending. Cousins arrived from as far away as Duluth Minn., Superior Wis., and even Cape Coral, Fla! Games were played, stories were told about family history, and the laughter echoed across the BIG MEADOW. Many people in the world have family and friends. We are very blessed to actually be friends with our family! We would like to take this time to thank Mona (Mackereth) Almgren and her family for hosting the event.
