Family Reunion 2007

The Stephens and Brown clans got together at Champoeg State Park. The Stephens folks have been getting together every year but it had been some time since they've been with the Browns, who are cousins on Mom's side. It was my turn to host so I took the opportunity to get both clans together in one place.

Larry Brown brought photos and a notebook compilation of the Brown family archive. It was great to see the photos and letters that our grandfather, my mother and her brother Delmar had gathered. Our grandparents were descendants of pioneers who had settled in Oregon in the 1840's so seeing the artifacts and reading the history was a real treat.

This was the ending of a very busy June. It was a lot of fun and full of variety. I'm looking forward to a few lazy days of summer before the chorus season begins again.
