Last night I attended a non-Frost Valley gathering and got to spend a little time with Janet Miller, now Janet Miller Stier, who was a long-time Frost Valley'er and eventually was a (great) VC of Pokey in the 1990s. Here is she with her husband Byron Stier and their son Drew, who is currently a sophomore in high school.

During the Labor Day weekend reunion at Frost Valley, we asked anyone who had ever been a VC to come up to the front for a group photo. These snapshots (taken by various people) give you a sense of the result. I heard several people say: "It was the hardest job I ever had."

|Henry Turer, Jon's son. He wanted to learn the chords to "Old Wawayanda" and that night he played the song with me at closing campfire.|

This was Tacoma Village in 1995, Katie Kelly's first summer as Tacoma VC. They lived (as you can see from the photo) in cabins 41-45.

|At "opening" campfire, a group of us gathered to sing "Old Wawayanda." I've sung this song with each of this guitarists separately across the decades but never all together. What an honor.|

|At one point during a meal we called up everyone who had ever led an Adventure Trip or been involved with Sequoia. This photo (taken by John Ferris) doesn't nearly capture all the people who were standing there. Adventure! That's what it's all about!|
