Using the Blog

Every family member interested in updating this blog is welcomed to participate. Anybody can read and post to the blog without any special invitations and we can have up to 100 authors, so let's make this a place to share information. Just email Barb Landis ( and I'll add you to the "invite" list. You can move information around, add text boxes, edit information, change colors, and add photos. This is for all of us to keep up with the planning.

Anybody planning to stay at the Holly Inn, be sure to make your reservations ASAP. Ask for the Schoen family reunion discount when you reserve. There is a musical event at the inn the weekend of our reunion so it will be busy but the owner assured me she would block rooms for us.


UPDATE: We have the caterer engaged, a tent reserved, and we've started a fund for expenses. Can't wait to see you all!


  1. Barb,
    Thanks for all your hard work! Do you know if there is a bus from NYC to Carlisle? I'm trying to figure the easiest way to get Lisa to the reunion! We are excited to see everyone!

  2. I believe there is a bus, but train is probably much quicker. She can get a train from Penn Station to Harrisburg and we can easily find a cousin, second cousin or first cousin once removed, to pick her up. Hbg Amtrak Stn is about 30 mins from Carlisle, 40 mins from Gardners.


  3. I reserved a room in my name for Saturday night, as a base for anybody needing a place to regroup, nap, chill or whatever.
