Reunion Rap #1 2016


As you can see, we had a FABULOUS turn out for the annual Chicago reunion the weekend before Thanksgiving!  In a series of blogs in the upcoming weeks, we will give you an update about the Woodland girls who joined us for the afternoon to watch the 2016 camp video, flip through the new scrapbook, relive camp memories, and of course, to eat yummy treats.  Thank you to our long distance travelers for joining us from Iowa, Boston, Florida, and Mexico!  If we were not able to connect with you at this event, please feel free to share your news with us for a future post.
