In this 1959 home movie, Gerald and Louise Bench visit older daughter Marcia Hageman (née Bench) at her home in Rahway, New Jersey. Marcia’s sister and brother-in-law, Geraldine and Bob Malone, come from Florida for the impromptu reunion. While there, the growing Bench family enjoys a boat excursion and picnic. The extended family reunites at the Hageman home for Christmas, opening presents and playing cards.
