A large group gathered at the home of Ruth and Gordon Sherman for the 80th reunion of the Lamb clan now joined with the Smiths. A potluck luncheon was enjoyed by all. Cornor Sherman 3 years old was the youngest member present. The oldest and the one traveling the furtherst distance was Gerry Kenneally of Avon Park, Fla. The children played games. Jude Lamb, of Lamoine, the group's historian, explained the Lamb-Smith genealogy. She had made large charts which allowed all to see where they fit in with the many generations and branches. She told stories of her labors searching for the relatives. Others told their stories making for a pleasant informative afternoon. Jude has spent a lot of time in this research and has many hours to go .
