Summer seems to be the time
for reunions. Some are big and
some are small. Our family
started to have a gathering of
about IS people SO years ago.
This number has now grown to
be nearer 70, but only a small
number still attend our annual
picnic. They are simply too scat
tered and reach from California
Our first celebrations were in

Professor Higbee succeeded in
creating a map of the highest
detail possible...a map that shows
every stream and lake. He
painstakingly plotted by hand, the
location of 45,000 miles of
streams onto a 3 x 5 foot map.
The map sold extremely well -
until it was lost several years later.
Incredibly, the printer entrusted

The few remaining dog-eared
copies became a prized fisher
man's possession. Professor
Higbee was offered $4OO for one
of his last maps. And state
agencies were forced to keep their
copies under lock and key.
Experts told Professor Higbee
that reprints were impossible,
because the maps were printed in
Then, in 1991, at the age of 91,
Howard Higbee's dream came
true. Computers made it possible
to reprint the map. Holding an

My husband's family recently
had a big reunion with several
hundred in a school. He and
three other people spent months
preparing for the event. One of
the members even had a book on
the genealogy of the “Kraybill”
family printed after many, many
hours of work.
Mugs were sold that had the
family crest printed on them and
many old pictures were dis
played. Long ago a picture was
taken of a family reunion and an
aunt put a number on each of the
hundred some people shown and
then named each one on the back
of the picture.
I really doubt that today any
one could identify each of the
hundreds pictured at a reunion.
It seems that we are so busy with
our own immediate families that
we lose touch with the larger
family unless someone takes the
trouble to organize a reunion.

During Bug Camp, a group of Milton Hershey School
(MHS) elementary school students took an up-close look
at some honeybees at work in the campus bee yard. The
children assisted Agricultural and Environmental Educa
tion (AEE) Instructional Advisor Scott Seibert, AEE stu
dent interns Joe Toole and Al-Zahraa Hbaiu, and Honey
Crest Farm owner and operator Stuart Mathias as they
extracted honey from the hive and processed it for
human consumption. The camp was made available to
students through the School’s Summer of Opportunities
Program (SOP). The 10-week SOP offers a variety of
week-long camps to students, providing them with per
tonal enrichment, recreational fun, academic prepared
ess, and career awareness.
