Baker family reunion

The descendants of Ira and Lorraine Wyke Baker had a reunion on Sunday, Sept. 6 at Cy Young Park, Newcomerstown.

There were 65 in attendance. Pat Stokes led the prayer. Jody Baker and Rhonda Baker-Fisher were in charge of arrangements. The tables were decorated with flowers and picks holding pictures of family members in years gone by.

A guessing game was held to determine how many old buttons were in a jar. Ryan Myers won the prize, a $25 gift certificate from Wal-Mart (donated by Jim Fry). The children also went "fishing" for prizes and hunted for coins in the grass.

The oldest present was Betty Bliss and the youngest was Jaxson Ames.

Those attending came from Newcomerstown, Coshocton, Strasburg, Dover, New Philadelphia, Canton, Centerburg, Columbus, Pataskala, Fresno, Kent, Port Washington, Mississippi, and Florida.
