It’s not long now until the Lein family, the children and grandchildren of Jay and Josina Lein will be gathering for an annual week-end family reunion in the Irish Hills of Michigan. Jerry and others will be much missed. For a long time it was a highlight of his year. Some members of the family will be present. That’s an Option B we will celebrate. Members of the extended family are always welcomed! To those living but unable to be present all send love and hugs.
Recently I ran across some old postcards, perhaps from the 1930’s with scenes from the Irish Hills area near Adrian, MI. What a lovely area, not much changed over the years. The houses, the roadways around the lakes, the lake scenes all are as lovely as they have been for many years.
In past years some of us spent part of our week-end at Evans Lake antiquing. I might have purchased the postcards then, not sure. No I wasn’t there in the 1930’s!!
The dancehall at Devil’s Lake is likely gone, but the picture evokes the happy times many no doubt enjoyed there. Here’s hoping these pictures turn out large enough for blog readers to soak up the atmosphere.
If you have a history with this area of MI, do let us know. If you identify the specific year of the cars parked in front of the dancehall, comment and tell us that too.
