"Margaret Aardsma 2009 Family Reunion"

It was my privilege to help with the "Margaret (Upton) Aardsma 2009 Reunion" in Amherst, New Hampshire, to honor my wonderful mother-in-law, Margaret Aardsma. This precious time took place in August of 2009. (Many thanks to all those that attended and helped make this event come together!)

One of the events scheduled during the reunion was an evening "Talent Show" where many family members presented various items; it was a great time of laughter and joy. (Thanks to all who participated!) Singing, musical instruments, music by the four children of Margaret Aardsma (my husband, Gerald, being one of them), slide shows, etc. were part of this time together. It was all meant to honor Margaret Aardsma. My part of the talent show was a short object lesson which I wrote and presented for the children present.
