As you can read from the two clippings transcribed below, the Cayemberg reunions were in honor of Eli and Florence Cayemberg nee Villers and after they passed the reunions were for their descendants. Are your family reunions held in honor of someone in particular or of a family event?
Dinner was served to 132 members of the Cayemberg family at Pamperin Park, Green Bay, Sunday, Chairmen of the reunion were Patrick Cayemberg, Green Bay; Mrs. Wilfred Cayemberg and Mrs. Henry Cayemberg, Manitowoc.
A corsage and gift was presented to Mrs. Eli Cayemberg, Pulaski, who is 82 years old. Her youngest sister, Mrs. Agnes Tardiff, Duluth, Minn., attended the reunion. Mrs. Tardiff whose last visit to Green Bay was 38 years ago is a guest at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Martin Cayemberg, Green Bay.
Mrs. Eli Cayemberg is the mother of 10 children, three daughters and seven sons. She has 44 grandchildren and 38 great grandchildren. Two sons, Wilfred and Henry Cayemberg reside in Manitowoc.
One grandchild and five great grandchildren were added to the family during the past year. Members attended from Algoma, Rio Creek, Casco, Luxemburg, Martinville, Dyckesville, Tonet, Manitowoc, Pulaski, Kunish, Anston, Two Rivers, Duluth, Minn., and Esign, Mich. Next year's reunion will be held at Pamperin Park, June 7, 1953. Chairmen of the coming event will be Harvey Mourlau (sic) and Mrs. Cyril Blohowiak, Green Bay, and Mrs. Donald Nellis, Dyckesville."
And another clipping for the same reunion. Almost verbatim with the only notable change being the address for Martin Cayemberg:
"132 Members of Cayemberg Family Hold Reunion (handwritten '1952')
An 11:30 dinner was served to 132 members of the Cayemberg family at Pamperin park Sunday. Patrick Cayemberg and Mrs. Henry Cayemberg, Green Bay, and Mrs. Wilfred Cayemberg, Manitowoc, were chairmen of this year's event.
A corsage and gift was presented to Mrs. Eli Cayemberg, Pulaski, who is 82 years olf. Her youngest sister, Mrs. Agnes Tardiff, came from Duluth, Minn., for the reunion. Mrs. Tardiff, whose last visit to Green Bay was 38 years ago, is a house guest at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Martin Cayemberg, 875 Shawano avenue.
The clipping was taken from a scrapbook handed down to me by my mother in law. No newspaper name was given, but other reunion articles were from the Green Bay Press Gazette. One of these clippings was probably from a different paper since it is unlikely that the Press Gazette would have published the same article twice, even on different days.
