Game Highlights: Two great teams with very developedskills. We will see several of these girls on future area high school teams. All Saints had the edge with their height and depth. Valley Catholic however, kept them on the ropes the entire game. Great job to both teams!

As my week of vacation with my Aunt comes to an end, we enter a high stakes game of BINGO where there are several winners per game and the payout is a mini candy bar! Fifteen minutes before the games begin, a talented woman plays the piano as part of the group sings along. It is a community building activity and provides entertainment for several of the residents.
Just for the record, I won 2 candy bars! 🙂

Every year I make my annual vacation to Indiana to visit my Aunt Nancy (Mom’s sister) and her family. It is always very special to me because these are really some very special people to me. One of the things we ALWAYS do is take our sentimental journey to visit the places that were important in our family history on that side of the family.
Highlights on the trip include a visit to Sidney, Indiana where my Grandfather and Grandmother met. Grandpa lived on the street that Grandma’s sister lived on. She would come to visit and Grandpa must have had a keen eye! The sad part of the story is that she died when my Mom was 4 and Aunt Nancy was 3. We visit her gravesite every year along with other family members who are buried there in Collamer near South Whitley, IN.
Next we go to North Manchester, IN to visit Benders Funeral Home where Grandpa was an embalmer. After his wife died he quit the business.
We have such a good time retelling the stories that my cousins are now interested in taking the tour with us. My cousin Dan Hoeppner asked to join us this year and of course we were thrilled to have his company. We have a place on the trip where we always take pictures in front of the Indiana Street sign. It on the street my grandparents met.
