Exactly what do you mean, Lil'Grandma, by these words you've written? "Sorry to hear that my bro Hank and I and some other are posting pic form them. Please befriend me on facebook." Lela Anderson Swank.

I'm not sure what that means. Perhaps you could enlighten me. Thank you.

Hi Chris, so glad to hear from you. Bring me up to date on the 3 of you. Where does Charlie live in Florida? You said, "We have all been busy surviving." I think that goes for all of us. We live in tough times, but the Lord has promised to supply all our needs. I 'hang my hat' on that. I see you live in the Jim thorpe area. Where does Gretta live? Are you all married? Do you all have families? Did you see the photos on Hank's facebook page? I look forward to hearing from you soon.

I attended Myerstown Mennonite school with the Zimmerman family and will always remember the limo/ school bus that brought everyone to school. The other memory is trading food for the homemade applesauce at lunch. I am sad to say over the years i don't remember who was in my grade any more. The time period was 63-66.

Hi Roy, you may not know me, since I was the oldest of the "Singing Zims" and out of school. I like the name you gave for the 'hearse'...limo/school bus. I write about this in my book, "No Scrip For My Journey," There's a picture of it in the book, too. It is hilarious to say the least. Do you know what? I can still taste that homemade applesauce. Nothing could taste better. When I don't make my own, I buy 'Musselman' applesauce. It's the closet to homemade you can buy. Just a thought if you still get hungry for some! Keep the comments flowing. I learn things I didn't know before.

Ok, Talk to your parents or grandparents lol. There was a family living ouside Rehersburg, the Zimmermans. They had 12 adopted and 12 foster children at one time. This was in the 60's and 70's. They also sang at churches and did shows. I was one of the foster children and attended school in Rehersburg elem. Remember Mr.Wisehopper? lol I am interested in any that remember them, especially any music recordings of them that may have survived the yrs.
What would you like to know?

<quoted text>Charlie, feel free to contact me..email hammer_92253_hank@yahoo.com I can take you to the farmhouse...It's still there although the Zimmerman's are long gone. Julia was the last one there and she moved to Texas years ago. Unfortunately she remarried and I forgot her married name. When we lived there she was married to Earnest Reed.
Ernest Reed was my brother. Ruthanne was the last one at Zimdale after Harry and Annie passed away.. She divorced my brother and has been married several times since. I keep in contact with some of the others. A few of the children have passed away. If you wish to contact a few of the adoptees, just contact me and I can give them your e-mail address.

Hi Roy, I remember the name Shirk. And attended the same school. I still have a picture of my teacher..Margorie Shenk. JFK was assinated Nov.1963, so I would of been there after that. surely during two of the years you were there. My two vivid memories are, hitting my first home run. And sitting on the steps out back, waiting my turn at bat. Someone yelled heads up. I looked up and got knocked out by a foul ball! And of course...the fruit rolls.
