STILL ROLLING

STILL ROLLING — Tom Kallenberg and his family made a special trip to Obion County this past weekend for a special family reunion at Reelfoot Lake. While enjoying an afternoon at the Dixie Rod & Gun Club, he and his family posed in front of his 1954 Chevrolet, which was bought new that year by his grandfather and has been driven by five generations of his family. On hand for the photo were (front, from left) Kallenberg and his wife, Janet Kallenberg of Princeton, Texas, Jeff and (Kallenberg’s daughter) Rachel Ireland of Covington, La., (back) Annie, Haley, Riley and Hannah Ireland and Andy Bratton (Kallenberg’s nephew) of Plano, Texas. Kallenberg moved to Union City with his parents when he was a baby and considers himself a member of the Union City High School Class of 1964 and he regularly attends his high school reunions, as well as local family reunions. His wife is a 1966 graduate of UCHS. His truck was originally used as a farm truck before making the rounds with his children and grandchildren. The truck’s history includes a 20-year period in which it was parked in a barn at his farm before being rescued and fully restored to its original glory. The Kallenberg family visited Obion County for the annual Moore family reunion this past weekend, which was attended by a large delegation of local family members.
