We do not have a page dedicated to our very first get-together. Some of you may
remember a camping trip that sparked the idea of starting our group. That camping trip
is counted as REUNION NUMBER ONE, thus explaining why we have already had THIRTEEN reunions.
Our upcoming REUNION 2017 will then, of course, be our FOURTEENTH REUNION.
