The “Ein Prosit” song was sung by all at the 2006 reunion.

2018 Reunion Information

July 12-15, 2018 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
There’s a whole bunch of Wisconsin Family Members feverishly working on the details which will be forthcoming in the November 2017 Cousins Newsletter! Possibilities they are investigating include one of the many breweries in the area to visit, the Harley Davidson Museum, Old World Third Street, an Edelweiss Boat tour with a meal, a Milwaukee River Walk and a tour of the house built by their Vahsholz ancestor who was a stone mason.
Start thinking now of all the sights you can take in on your next summer’s trip to Milwaukee.
See you next July in Milwaukee!
