General : Christmas, Family Style
Posted by skenow on Fri, 21 Dec 2018 (2654 reads)

It was a lifetime ago when I first found out I was going to be a father. Feeling an immeasurable sense of joy, and an equal sense of fear, I knew my journey had just gone down a path I could not turn away from. As Gayle and I traveled farther down the path to parenthood, we chose names, redecorated rooms, and started collecting the things necessary for raising a child. Anticipation mounted daily.

General : Updates from the 2011 Kenow Family Reunion
Posted by skenow on Thu, 27 Oct 2011 (5291 reads)

Several family members gathered at the home of Spike Kenow on Saturday, 17 September for an afternoon of fun, food and stories. The weather was a bit cool and grey, but the sun came out for a while and everyone had a great time!

The official attendance count was 45 and 6 of the 12 families were represented. I've added an album on the website (and on Facebook, for those of you there. You should be able to view the photos without a Facebook account) of the photos taken today.

I think the approach we took this year was a winner - no meetings, no committee, just a date and time, a place and everyone bring snacks to share.

Stay in touch, spread the word, get connected with more kin and do this again soon!

Albert and Mary (Smetana) KienowThis year marks the 110th anniversary of Grandpa and Grandma's wedding and Spike Kenow has graciously invited the Clan to meet at her house on Saturday Sept. 17, 2011. Those who attended our last reunion there in 2007 remember that she has a beautiful house with a deck and a spacious yard. Gathering time is 1:00 PM for visiting and reminiscing - eat before coming and bring a dessert or snack to share, keeping in mind those who are diabetic.

General : Family Trees Are Back Online
Posted by skenow on Thu, 11 Jun 2009 (5357 reads)

I have finally discovered the conflict in the Family Trees module and made the appropriate changes - so the family trees are now available again. I am also picking the development of the module again and hope to have some new improvements available soon.

Thanks for all your patience!
