I have some sad news to report, based on information from The Courier Mail, Paul who had done so much work on this family and organising the reunion died in October 2013. So if, like me, you were emailing or phoning to no avail this is the explanation.
In respect for his commitment to the family’s history, there has been a decision to go ahead with the reunion. We will all meet, as planned, on Saturday the 16th November 2013 from about 10:30am to approx 2:30pm at Williams Park, Cecil Crescent, Highfields (near Toowoomba).http://www.crowsnest.info/natural-attractions/parks-and-reserves/70-other-highfields-parks. There are several entrances to the park but we will convene near the Cecil Crescent entrance. There will be blue & white balloons and a small Bavarian flag to mark our location.
This is a self-catered event so please bring whatever you require to eat and drink on the day. There are BBQs if people are feeling they would like that option, and a playground for the kids.
I will bring various maps and photos of Dorfprozelten for descendants to inspect so you can see where the distant rellies originated.
Can you please bring:
- your family’s food and drink
- camera if you want to take photos
- old family photos
- your family’s stories
We look forward to meeting you there.
