Margaret Kahler Brackebusch (grew up in Mackay, Idaho the daughter of Walter and Eveyln Kahler), her husband, Fred, daughter, Carrie, and grandson, Avery signing the Guest Book.  The Brackebusch's came from their home in Kellogg, Idaho. Margaret said when she was child, they used have the Catholic Church Easter Egg Hunts at  their house on the lawn because St. Barbara's yard area (seen above in the black and white photo of the church) was sage brush and weeds.
Lots of good food and wine were served.
