Laughery Reunion - 1996

The 32nd Reunion of the Family of 
David Leander Laughery and Martha Jane Harbaugh

August 17, 1996

Reunion-goers at the home of David and Sharon Laughery

 

On Saturday, August 17, 1996 there were 30 family members gathered at the home of David and Sharon Laughery in Bethlehem, Pa., for the 32nd annual reunion of the family of David Leander Laughery and Martha Jane Harbaugh. The weather was hot and sunny. Some enjoyed the back yard pool.

 

Ronald B. Case said the blessing. The food was enjoyed through-out the afternoon with Hamburgers, hot dogs and lots and lots of food and desserts of all kinds. President, Nancy Thompson called the meeting to order. A moment of silence was held in memory of our deceased loved ones. The 1995 minutes were read by Loretta. New officers were elected for 1997:

  • John Winand, Pres.
  • Keith Winand, V. Pres.
  • Loretta Downes, Sec. & Treas.
  • Susan Powell, Entertainment

David & Vicky Laughery extended the invitation to hold the reunion at their home in Seaford, on Aug. 17, 1997. Don Laughery, son of Ray Laughery, shared with us the research on the Laughery family tree he had completed during the past year going back in time to 1754 of Daniel Laughery of Cumberland, Pa. It was most interesting and Don is doing a great research. Perhaps one day we will see it all in book form.

Jerry and Marie introduced a new son: Alexander Nicholas Thompson, born 12/17/95. Sheila Laughery introduced Bridgett Leandra Laughery (note middle name), born?. Lois and Harry Winand traveled from Florida. Susan Powell was in charge of the entertainment. Lots of fun and talking was enjoyed by all.
