Niederbuhl family hosts Memorial Day weekend reunion

BLOOMINGDALE – If you sensed a slight population boom in the Bloomingdale area on Memorial Day weekend, you weren’t mistaken.

A celebration was in full swing as four generations gathered from near and far at the home of Art and Norma Niederbuhl for a “Niederbuhl Family Reunion.”

Although not everyone was able to make the trip, Art and Norma were delighted to welcome all six of their children -?John, Claire, Artie, Casey, David and Margaret -?together with their families and significant others totalling well over 50 people.

As the guests of honor, Art and Norma, married for 66 years, were instructed to simply sit back, relax and enjoy the weekend, starting with a Saturday evening dinner out with their children and spouses at a local favorite, The Belvedere in Saranac Lake.

On Sunday, the rest of the Niederbuhl clan, including grandchildren and great-grandchildren, began arriving around 11 a.m. at the family home in Bloomingdale for an old-fashioned potluck picnic.There have been many additions since the last Niederbuhl reunion 19 years ago. The weekend was a great occasion for everyone to catch up, meet the newest members, and retell old stories while collecting new ones to be embellished for the next event.
