The Logtenberg family gathered at the home of Lillian and Derk Logtenberg to celebrate Grandpa’s 82nd birthday Tuesday of last week, with a potluck lunch and, of course, lots of desserts! Grandpa - and everyone else - enjoyed seeing two of his great-granddaughters as well – Emily and Evelyn - and the musical talents of Kayla on violin and Daniel on guitar!
