Other people lived in the house until about two years ago. The property was purchased by the Ephrata Township and turned into a park. All of the buildings were demolished and the land was regraded to provide a flat place for a ball diamond, parking lot, and pavilion. The pavilion was finished just before winter set in.
Leroy thought it would be nice to have a Wenger reunion on Grandpa Wenger's farm. So we arranged to rent the pavilion today and about 150 people showed up. Grandpa Wenger's house is gone and no one carried on the Wenger name in the family, but it was still a Wenger reunion. Although it was around 90, a nice breeze was blowing. The natural fan kept it from becoming unbearable. Doing this on Father's Day was a nice way to honor the memory of Grandpa Wenger. It sounded like everyone enjoyed it and wants to do it again another year.
