Ecola Reunion Weekend...

I haven't been doing much blogging this week, as we've been busy planning for and hosting a reunion this weekend.

Both Jim and I were students 20+ years ago at Ecola Hall Bible School in beautiful Cannon Beach, Oregon.  This weekend, we had some visitors...friends that we both knew from our respective years (who married each other and live in Oregon) came to the east coast for their family vacation.  They stayed with us for the weekend, and today we hosted a potluck at our house with a bunch of other Ecola alumni who live (or did live) in this area.  The turnout was great...50 people, and the weather held out.  It was hot and muggy, but the thunderstorms that were forecast didn't bother us.

Here's the gang, minus the families...

Most still live in the area, but some came from New Jersey and Virginia to join in the fun.

It sure didn't feel like twenty + years have passed!  We are thankful for the wonderful blessing of friendships!


  1. How very nice. I am glad you shared and that they weather held for you.
    It is so nice when you get to do those things. Thanks for sharing.

  2. You're right, Alica. Friendships are wonderful blessings. God is truly amazing how He puts a puzzle together of such, putting friends in our paths at just the right time.

  3. I just went to my 20th high school reunion. Time sure flies. Looks like a fun time.

  4. How nice of you to host the gathering. It sounds like a lot of fun!

  5. Yeah friends are wonderful and twenty years does pass very fast too fast:) B

  6. Pot luck dinners and friends are one of the best ways to spend a weekend. Time does seem to have a way of marching on with out us noticing too.

  7. Isn't it funny how it just doesn't seem possible that it was 20 years ago?! It sounds like ya'll had a good reunion! :)


I enjoy hearing what you have to say! Thanks for your comments!
