Lakatos family reunion 2011.08.24

Written by David Green.

Members of the Lakatos family met Aug. 7, for the 24th annual family reunion at the home of David and Linda Lips in Tecumseh, Mich.

The Lips, Gillies and Dewitz families serves as the hosts. Nearly 50 descendants of Rose and Alex Lakatos, formerly of Morenci, came from Tecumseh, Britton, Deerfield, Blissfield, Adrian, Morenci, Sand Creek, Whitmore Lake and Corunna, Mich.; Lyons and Columbus, Ohio; and Locust Grove, Va., for a potluck lunch.  A short meeting was held to catch up on family events.

Those in attendance took part in games of water brigade, “How well can you hear?” and Bingo. There was also a family quiz about Grandma and Grandpa Lakatos. A 50/50 raffle was held and door prizes were given out.

Each guest was asked to bring a Hungarian heritage dessert, along with the recipe. The desserts were auctioned off to the highest bidder by two crowd pleasing auctioneers who were able to get the bidding very high.  The proceeds went to the family flower fund.

Dean and Julie Lakatos will host the 2012 reunion.
