Despite Rainy Weather -- 2012 Reunion Was Big Success!

We had a great reunion Sept 2nd, even though the day started out rainy. We were able to enjoy pleasant breezes with just a touch of humidity all afternoon at Ron and Sherry's river-front home in Kankakee.

Our thank you gift to Ron and Sherry and their family was well received. Here's a link to an SWF video file of the presentation just before we all sat down to a delightful meal. The file is about 11 mbytes long and will attempt to open a new viewing window when you click on this link.

The two remaining siblings of Pearl and Tell Hurt's family were present; Jan Wallace (almost 93) and Phil Hurt (84). Everyone got a chance to visit with each of them this year, and Jon video'd them reminiscing about their younger years. Did you know they met John Dillinger briefly right after he broke out of jail nearby in Indiana (he asked Phil and Jan for directions to Route 49 on his way to Chicago, where he was later shot and killed by the FBI outside the Biograph Theatre). The file is an SWF, and is 133 Mbytes. If you click on the link the browser will attempt to open a new viewing window.

Also, I've posted 30 pictures in slideshow format on the Photos page - just click the Reunion 2012 link there to begin viewing ...

It was fun seeing everyone this year -- best wishes to all!
