Old family photos were on display at 10:30 and throughout the day
prompting much discussion about our early family members and their
lives and traditions. Time was spent identifying places and individuals
in recently discovered old family photos.

Lunch was served at 12:30 and was a delight for all.
In the afternoon, games were played, stories were told, recent family
pictures were shared, new family additions proudly announced, and
old friendships renewed.

Helen Weaver / Crall gave a talk on her rememberances of days spent
growing up on the family farm and memories of attending the
Will School.
