Reunion of Americans and Aussies was heartwarming on a cold day
The American family and friends of Kylie, Chris, Ben and Sophie Warner of Melbourne, Australia, gathered in a warm garage at the home of Kevin Wendt on a cold day, January 10, to honor the Aussies. Kylie Fuller Warner was an international student at Springfield High School during the 1982-83 academic year when she lived with the family of Harold and Marlys Wendt. The group gathered for a potluck lunch, watched the Vikings-Seahawks football game on television, and played cards and board games.
