Kolping Bulletin

May 2014

Kolping History In the last two months, a mountain of information has been supplied by Bill & Phyllis Lunnemann, Christa & John Olding, Hank Gerbus, Mary & Ted Tegenkamp, Doris & Werner Wilke, Jane Fitzpatrick, Gene Bertke, Ron Von Den Benken, Cathy Weissmann, Paul Boehm, Jim & Joyce Brown, Liz Ruether, Carol Kalkhoff, Dottie & Carl Nissen, Joan Rehling, Trey & Cindy Seibel, Larry Fehrenbach, Clara & George Ostendorf, Charlie & Helen Zix, Ferd & Walburga Kappen, Joe & Doris Ahrnsen, Otger Kappen, Harry & Dianne Schwietering, Nancy Ellensohn, Bev Meyer, Gerry Kreutzjans, Ben & Regina Albers and Nancy Finke. These people are known by most at Kolping, except for Jane Fitzpatrick, who is the granddaughter of Ed Lamping, a member from 1925 to 1999, as well as the Schützenkönig in 1929. Ed carved the eagle for Schützenfest for most of Kolping’s ninety year history. It is a stroke of good luck for today’s members that he also saved so many things and that Jane has done an excellent job of preserving the physical memories of her grandpa. The King’s Court information is nearly complete for the last fifty plus years. Still needed are court pictures for Willi & Christine Gerdes, as well as all court pictures from 1959 and before. It may not have been the general rule to even take court pictures before 1960, though we did find one from 1955. Pictures of the King and Queen from King’s Ball invitations are still needed for Frank and Vera Rosenacker (1964), and August Breuwer and Betty Lindner (1960), as well as any from 1959 and before. Like court pictures, these may not have even existed before 1962. A nice snapshot of the king and queen would be a good substitute. We have the names of all who were on the King’s Courts back to 1972 and also for 1965 and 1962. Does anyone have the name lists for the other years? We have a picture of every president of Kolping except for Fred Kuhn (1972), and Jack Bloemer (1986). Can anyone help with these two? They can be cropped out of a group shot, if necessary. Now for the hard part - personal stories and memories - When did you join Kolping and why? How many generations of your family have been involved in the Society? What are your earliest memories of Kolping? What are some of your favorite memories? How has being a member of the Kolping Society changed your life and/or made it better? These questions and others were asked of members back in 1991. Three of the members from the 1920’s and 1930’s answered before the project ended unfinished. Now, twenty-three years later, so many memories have been lost. Let’s not go down that road again! There is a reason we celebrate longevity of membership in the Kolping Society. Memories are important and need to be preserved. Now is the time to do that. We have a form, full of questions that we will gladly mail to you upon your request. Hank Gerbus and Otger Kappen have already beaten everyone to the punch with this. Please join them in this worthwhile endeavor. Translation help needed – We have some articles that appeared in the Kolping Banner in the early 1930’s, as well as some other articles that need to be translated to English. Anybody willing and able to help? It’s too big of a job for Manfred Schnetzer and Joe & Doris Ahrnsen alone! We need some “old timers” who have e-mail addresses, so we can pass along some pictures with the many faces that need to be identified. Thanks so much to all who have stepped forward with assistance and contributions of information. The positive response has been overwhelming. Our contact information is below.
