Wow! The reunion starts in 3 days and there has been so little feedback.  Thank you Alex, Enchild and Evelyn who responded and submitted a list of the items they are bringing.  That’s all the members that I have heard from.  No one has responded to the excursions so am I to assume that there is not interest?  Even if you don’t plan to participate in any of the excursions, what I would expect is a “thanks but not thanks, & by the way, I still appreciated the time and effort you put into organizing this”.  Write something, say something.  The reunion is for all of us.  I took it upon myself to organize it as best as I can, but do you want me to tell you how busy my life is and how little time I really have to take on this thankless job?

I will keep on writing for the few who do get involved.

Helpful hints for packing:

  • Sunscreen
  • Hat
  • perimeter bug spray
  • Flashlight: comes in handy for late night walks.
  • Nights will be cool so bring long pants, jacket, sweater
  • Games: card games, board games,  & put your name on everything you want to go back home with
  • Balls: for volleyball, football, dodge ball
  • bicycle, scooters, anything fun on wheels
  • personal water bottle

Need outdoor extension cords & BoomBox

  • sleeping bags.
  • Tenting is allowed at Sackett Lake, so if you have one please bring it.
  • any water sport activities, even balloons for water balloon fights.
  • Bring cash- it will make it easier to pass around a collection can since there’s is  so few response for the food list.
  • alcohol of your choice
  • Wal-Mart is 13.6 miles from Hurd house: Coming from NY/NJ, take Exit105B off of the Hwy 17:
                                Wal-Mart Supercenter
                               41 Anawana Lake Rd, Monticello, NY 12701
                               (845) 796-7202
  • Don’t forget chargers: for phones, camera, etc


See you soon!

  1. You are so right Carline, about the lack of response to your posts. You definitely deserve a huge ‘thank you’ for the work you’ve done. I think people are a bit overwhelmed by the planing it takes just to get there, so the lack of response is probably due to uncertainty more than indifference.
    Susan and I will be arriving into Albany wed night around midnight. Our plan is to stay in a hotel and drive to Bethel thursday am. We’ll have a rental and we will be available for whatever will be needed at the time.(grocery runs…etc). I’ll be your safety valve through sunday, just let me know what you need.
    I’ll make sure that everything is recorded and make an album of the event for those who can’t make it this year.
    Lets have a great time everybody!!!
