I've been going through old pictures tonight (1/14/15). These were taken at the 2010 Glick Reunion.
|Everyone's cups, clean, labeled and ready for the next use|
It was held here http://www.friedenswald.org. No cellphone reception for anyone, no WiFi, none of the "ordinary" technical accoutrements of modern life.
As I recall, there wasn't even Air Conditioning!
And yet 60+ people from the ages of about 90 all the way down to 3 years had a rousing good time. We were even fortunate enough to have a cousin and her family attend the reunion from Norway! (They took the prize for coming the farthest.)
The road going by the camp grounds was so completely deserted that you could've taken a nap in the middle of it without being disturbed.
Thanks to all who stayed in the lodge, we had full access to a private beach where we could enjoy the water.
We had a full Glick breakfast, thanks to my cousin Lali and her talent in cooking.

The ping pong table was quite used up over the weekend. I believe there is a trophy for the winner of the reunion tournament.

I still think about that time. There were a few scary moments - like when my cousin N. fell of the back of a truck and ended up with a concussion and in the emergency room. But, thank God, he was fine.
There were funny moments, like other cousins and my brothers capsizing a boat on the lake. A cousin jumping in the lake - forgetting his phone was still in his pocket!!!! (Somehow he managed to get it working again too.)
