The family and friends of Warwick and Maggie Karickhoff met once again to honor their memories. The 21st annual reunion was at Century Union Hall, Century No. 1 on July 11, 12 and 13. Attendance was down to 101 for the three-day event.
July 11 began with visiting and enjoying snacks at the union hall. July 12 started with the annual golf tournament, followed by a meal planned and prepared by the grandchildren, then picture taking and games for all ages. An auction ran by great-grandson Aaron Smith, auctioneer, helped to raise funds for next years' reunion. Not only did we raise funds, but also we had a great time and lots of laughter. The families donated items for the auction. On July 12, 55 relatives attended a church service at the union hall, which was also directed by the grandchildren. A hot dog roast, games and more visiting followed the church service.
