I was raised in Arenzville and now live in Boulder, Colorado.  They don't do Burgoo here. Maybe you could start franchising the Burgoo.

This weekend is my 30 year class reunion from Triopia High and my Dad's 60 year reunion from Arenzville High. I really wish I could make the reunion, BUT, I have work obligations to fulfill. We (my wife and I) will be in Arenzville the week after the reunion so we hope to see everyone then.. Keep up the great work on the site, Molly.

Just reminiscing about my childhood with a co-worker and the topic of Burgoo came out of the recesses of my mind.   I found it very difficult to describe to a native Californian the concept whereby a town of 500 (yes they have towns that small) grows to 1,000+ for two days of fun, food, and people simply taking the time to share their good fortunes and partake in old fashioned get-to-know-your-neighbor conversations.   My life lessons learned from all the good people of Arenzville have taken me places I could only have dreamed while roaming the halls of Triopia.  A little homesick in CA.  Chris

I was just checking the comments and noticed the coment from my "little" brother Doug Stock.  Man, it's been 30 years since he graduated from school.  Man, one of us getting older and I'm glad it's not me.

I moved from Arenzville when I was 14 years old. My parents were James and Martha Thompson. I love coming back to see all my old friends when it comes time for Burgoo, but last year I didn't get to come because I moved out of my parents' home and I wish I never did. I don't think I will ever find a place like Arenzville with all the kind people that there is in that small town. I don't think I will ever forget and sooner or later I might just have to move back in the future.

Arenzville is a dated-back town. My grandpa, now living in Bay City MI, was pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church, my dad's brothers and sisters used to live in Arenzville.

But I did grow up in Beardstown. About  15 years a bunch of us who where originally from the area but now work for the BNSF in Neb.decided we were homesick and decided to throw a Burgoo! We made about 50 gallons and invited everyone we knew.Everyone was impressed with our finished product,even the people who didn't know Burgoo from Boiled Boston Butt.

I'm making some changes on the web and want to be sure that this feature is still working... I hope you are all ready for Burgoo 2002. I have just cleaned out my freezer to make more room for this year's brew. I also have some very nifty T-shirts I will be bringing next week, and the sale of them will help support the cost of maintaining the web page. As always, your contributions are much appreciated! Please stop by the Village Library on Friday or Saturday and buy a T-shirt.
