|From 2011 0703 Big Lake|
Fifty years ago this summer, my uncle Floyd Steger bought an old cottage on Big Lake in Shawano County, Wisconsin. The cottage became the site for many family vacations. Floyd passed away in 1990, but the tradition he started in 1961 continues. This year, over the Fourth of July weekend, 41 members of the family gathered there for a family reunion. These photos show how the cottage continues to play an important part in our family's history.
