2009 Woerner family reunion

Reunions

The 2009 Woerner family reunion took place on Saturday, July 25, 2009 in Huntington Beach, California. There were about twenty people in attendance.

We met for a picnic lunch at Edison Community Park at noon, then had dinner at 6pm at a nearby church. Between the meals, about half the attendees drove out to Riverside to see Henry Woerner, who was unable to travel to the reunion.

It was decided that the next family reunion will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada. More information will be posted here as the event draws closer and plans become finalized.

It was wonderful to see everyone, and we hope for an even better turnout next time!
