60th Anniversary Celebration

Mom and Dad
The family gathered together to celebrate a beginning. 

The event happened 60 years ago and from it has come a family. Four children, 10 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren, and let's not forget the 9 spouses (of either children or grandchildren) who have been added to the clan.

The official beginning was 60 years ago on a hot August summer day in Ithaca, NY. From the union of those two people, Mom and Dad, the family has grown to 30 people. On top of that, the group is spread across the country and living in 5 states (and that doesn't include the states of either confusion or chaos). Wow. It is something to consider. And to think that we were, with only a couple exceptions, gathered together in one place for the better part of a weekend is mind boggling.

It was a memorable event. It was a celebration and a great time. Memories were made and relationships rekindled.

Thanks to everyone who took part in the planning to make it happen. And thanks to everyone who carved out time to travel and participate.

It was memorable.
