Remme Reunion in Cambria

The oldest and youngest Remme at the reunion.

For over two years Pedar's very large Norwegian Remme family has been planning a family reunion. This past weekend over 50 people gathered at Camp Ocean Pines in Cambria, CA. People traveled as far as North Carolina, Washington, Oregon and Minnesota. What did the group do all weekend? We ate, we talked, we laughed and we got to know one another better. The Remme family is a fun bunch of people and you know what, anyone is welcome to be a Remme!
Making lefse!

Making krumkake!

Nothing like throwing an egg at a loved one!

My favorite part of the weekend was the Ole and Lena joke-off! Cousin Skip Holmes researched over 50 Ole and Lena jokes and handed them out. The person that delivered the joke the best, won! Skip was hilarious and it was great fun watching family members tell and flub-up their jokes!

Here is a sample of an Ole and Lena joke:

Remember the article in Ole’s newspaper:"North Dakota 's worst air disaster occurred today when a Cessna 152, a small 2 seater plane, crashed into a Norwegian Lutheran Church cemetery here early this morning..  "Ole and Sven, working as a search and rescue team, have recovered 826 bodies so far and expect the number to climb as digging continues into the evening."

Skip Holmes leads the joke-off!

Remme Reunion BBQ

Remme angels helped turn the thermometer down on Thursday, June 23, because it was over 100 all week, but on Thursday it was a beautiful 90. I don't have the grand total of folks that attended but I think the group was over 150 people!

Food and fun was shared by all starting at the pancake breakfast and ending with a delicious BBQ dinner. Kids of all ages enjoyed gunny-sac races, three-legged races and water balloon toss games.

Remme History written by Dagny Hoffer

A few years ago Grandma Dagny Hoffer gave me a copy of a document she had typed up about her parents, Pedar Carl Remme and Hjordes Charlotte Arne Remme. I recently was cleaning some albums and found the document that I stuffed in an album for "safe keeping!" I think it is safer now that it is scanned and shared.
