Dear Family Members
We invite all Family Members to the Hoelscher-Buxkemper Family Reunion to be held on Saturday and Sunday, June 26 and 27, 2010 in New Braunfels, Texas. The very first reunion was held in Westphalia, Texas in 1954 and reunions have been held biennially since.
The reunion will be held at the New Braunfels Civic/Convention Center, 375 South Castell Avenue, New Braunfels.
New Braunfels, founded in 1845 by German settlers and conveniently located on Interstate 35, 45 miles south of Austin and 30 miles north of San Antonio, is a beautiful city with two rivers, offering a variety of recreational opportunities, antique shops, dining, and parks.
New Braunfels has the Schlitterbahn. The area has received bountiful rains in the last few months so the Guadalupe and Comal rivers should have good flow for tubing, rafting, or just swimming. Then just a few miles away is Fiesta Texas and Seaworld.
Allow time on your schedule to enjoy these outstanding recreational activities.
This invitation includes a schedule of activities, a registration form for pre-registration, and a list of hotels/motels.
Pre-registration is recommended so sufficient food, chairs, and tables can be provided for your convenience. Pre-registration will be open until 12 June 2010.
Display Room: Open except late Saturday evening and during the Mass on Sunday Morning. Reba Ott, H-B Custodian of Family Records, will bring a vast amount of historical items for display. You are invited to bring your photos or mementos for display also.
Souveniors: Mementos of the reunion will be on sale during the reunion.
Book Sale: We still have an inventory of Hoelscher-Buxkemper Family Books so they will be available for your purchase during the reunion.
