Winston-Salem Site of Summer Reunion 2003
“New” Side of PCVF & Old Salem to be on Display
Updated 27 May 2003]
The fifth reunion of the Vogler/Fogler clan is scheduled for the weekend of July 18 – 20, 2003. We will meet in Winston-Salem, NC at the Hawthorne Inn (site of the 1998 reunion) located within walking distance of Old Salem. The weekend will feature family talent, displays from Foundation activities, as well as a “silent auction” highlighted by a donated copy of “The Book”, Descendants of Philip Christoph Vogler”. The evening banquet will feature several speakers with direct ties to our mission and family interests.
Much has been learned about our ancestors over the past several years and this reunion will focus on the new information. Old Salem will also feature a “new face” as several large construction projects will be open to visitors. The new Visitors Center will be complete early in 2003. The first restored building to open in twenty years; the Timothy Vogler Gun Shop, which opened to the public August 10, 2002, is a tremendous addition to the working trades education offered by Old Salem. We would love to see as many cousins as we can in July of 2003. Make plans now and block out a weekend to spend time with family and extended family in Winston-Salem, NC.
The festivities will kick off Friday afternoon with a Vogler family golf tournament; format to be determined. Saturday, the reunion meeting room at the Hawthorne Inn will be filled with activity from family musicians, displays of family history and interests, Vogler vendors offering their talents in art,crafts, as well as the new installment of the Vogler Collectable coffee mug. Children’s activities are being planned as well. The wee folk are guaranteed to learn about their history through a program of games and toys geared toward their interests. The Toy Museum at Old Salem is another “new” happening at Old Salem that will open later this year and should be an interesting exhibit for all of the children. A silent auction will also take place with the “highlighted item” to date as, a copy of the “Book”; Descendants of Philip Christoph Vogler.
The dinner banquet and celebration will take place in the same room as the day time activities. Featured will be a number of distinguished guest speakers associated with the NC Senate, Old Salem as well as part of our family.
