On June 1 the Koshkonong senior citizens building overflowed with family and friends who gathered for a day of visiting, sharing genealogy, a potluck lunch and a short game. Family survival kits were handed out to most of the people who attended.
Before leaving "Kosh," some of those present toured the old Middlestudder grocery and feed store that has recently been purchased by a family member.
Plans are being made to hold the 2004 reunion in a larger building. The reunion is always held the first Sunday in June.
