On Saturday, Oct. 14, 65 people, descendants of Ole and Lena Anderson, and Peder and Maria Jothen, gathered at the Westby VFW to share memories during a wonderful lunch.
Borgen’s meatballs, with potluck sides and desserts, were enjoyed as everyone visited. Pictures of the family farms in Norway, and genealogy information at “kirkkes” (churches in Norway) were fun to see.
Special recognition was given to those members ninety and older: Judy Jothen, Ann Marie Hanson, Aline Jernander, Nora Jernander, Harvey Olson and Cleo Yttre. Jotun LeRoy Anderson, son of Tucker and Holly Anderson, was introduced to the family as the newest member.
The next reunion is planned for 2019.
