FYI, we are preparing for the 100 year Lanane family
reunion in Indiana in 2017.
More details later!
One of our in-law cousins is an Indiana state senator and was just named
to lead its Demo caucus. Here is a cut from an online article I saw:
INDIANAPOLIS -- INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Indiana Senate Democrats have elected
Tim Lanane to lead their 13-member caucus in General Assembly. The
caucus elected Lanane their minority leader Wednesday, one day after the
election left the caucus with 13 seats, the same number it had
previously. Lanane, an Anderson attorney, was served in the Senate since
1997. He succeeds Vi Simpson of Bloomington, who did not seek
re-election but instead ran for lieutenant governor on John Gregg's
ticket. The 37-13 Republican majority in the chamber was decided
Wednesday when Republican incumbent Scott Schneider emerged victorious
in his north side Indianapolis district, holding off a challenge by
Democrat Tim DeLaney. Lanane said through the caucus's Twitter feed that
he looked forward to building consensuses with Republicans on issues.
You go Tim!!!!

had a great day this year at Mounds State Park on September 17th.
The weather was great and Jason Lanane, son of Mike Lanane, grandson of TJ Lanane, did a super job of running the show this year
with Mark Solid, son of Kathi Wasilewski as his Vice President.
balloons were the bomb with the kids! It’s hard to imagine but the food
gets better every year! The park had an Archeology day going on, so our
kids also had a chance to unearth arrow heard and dinosaur bones along
with a dozen other activity stations set up. Hopefully, we’ll have some
pictures to put up on the website soon!"
The Lanane's are a twig that
grafted into the Magrann Clan by marriage. They are the remnants of 13
brothers and sisters whose parents were born in Ireland. Of those
original 13, nine families still exist and have living descendants.
Each year they move the
responsibility of the reunion to a different family of the nine
descendents. Next year marks their 100th reunion. They have
met since the 1890’s, most every year except for some during the war,
etc. One of them is currently State Senator in the Indiana legislature
– Tim Lanane.
They wish to send out a warm
invitation to parts of their family they have lost track with: the
Ziegler’s and the Frey’s. If you know of ANY email or snail mail
addresses or phone numbers of those branches, PLEASE forward them to
this website so that they can reconnect, especially with their 100th
reunion coming up.
