Reunion Canceled

Hello…just forwarding on this notice to let everyone know the reunion has been canceled. See below.

Kilowan Love,

“Hi Everyone,

Cathy asked me to e-mail everyone and let you know that we are not going to be able to use Camp this weekend. They have a major electrial problem and won’t be able to have groups in until it is fixed…or is sold. We are still in hopes of putting together a reunion and will be in touch…Please forward this info. to any other Kilowan alumni who may have been thinking about attending.

Reunion Update

Just a reminder about the September Kilowan Alumni Reunion.  Please contact Cathy Bourson at arbour1@ if you are planning on attending.  The Willamette Council appears to be in the process of selling the property to the LDS Church.  If the sale happens prior to the Reunion, it may be canceled.

Thanks!  Larken

new photos

Hello, hello.

I’ve finally added the photos I promised a couple weeks ago from the alumni reunion weekend. They are posted under the photo archives. You’ll see I’m not generally one for portraits so if anyone has photos of actual people from the weekend, or anytime really, I’d love to post them if you’re willing to share. Also, I didn’t seem to get any photos of those great gowns on display in Teal, so if anyone can help out with that I’d appreciate it.

Thanks! Larken

Alumni Weekend Success

We carpooled with Spaz and her family up to Kilowan yesterday afternoon for the alumni reunion weekend. We met up with a lot of you and had a good time. We also did the cabin loop hike and the kids canoed and swam in the lake. We stayed for the potluck dinner and enjoyed catching up with everyone. Thanks for welcoming us! Also, I’m still shooting photos on film, so as soon as I’ve developed my pictures from yesterday I’ll share them here. If anyone has digital photos to share, I’d love to add them to the photo page.

I know we missed the hike to Luta and the camp songs at the covered rec. What else did we miss? Post comments about this weekend’s events on the guestbook for everyone who wasn’t able to make it.
