Central School

The LDS Church will build its recently announced Brigham City temple at 250 S. Main St., directly across the street west from the church's Brigham City Tabernacle.

When completed, it will bring the total of Utah temples to 14.

A great location and walking distance from home!!

Family Reunion 2010

I know it's very early to be talking details about the reunion but now that we are trying to combine with Uncle LeRoy and Aunt Mary's family, it takes a bit more logistical work. Ruth has contacted me to let me know it is actually her turn to host so I am now working out details with her. Here is what we have tentatively set so everyone is in the loop as well.

Mom and I decided that the weekend of July 24th would work best for her to be able to make it and since it's technically her turn to host, I want to make sure she's here. That would be Thursday through Sunday (the 22nd through the 25th.) Tentatively, this is what Mom and I discussed:

  • Thursday night: Big family dinner for those who can come in on Thursday
  • Friday: Tourist activities on your own to include a) Crater Lake about an hour away, b) Central Point Temple about an hour and a half away, c) Lava Beds & Caves about an hour away, etc.
  • Saturday: Family Reunion day. Thinking it would be fun to gather at a park for games and then a big lunch, then a putting challenge at the Running Y which is very family friendly and fairly cheap. Then dinner and (legal) fireworks most likely at our house in Klamath Falls.
  • Sunday: People can return home or can go to church on their own. I could provide info later for those who want it.
There are a number of options for staying here. The resort,, is spendy yes. If we had enough people who could/would stay at the Lodge there or in a vacation rental, I could get a better rate but it would probably still be over $100/night per family. There is also a KOA, several smaller hotels in Klamath Falls and the campground hookups on base (Kingsley Field.) For better information, check out our Chamber's website We are also planning on opening up our home as much as possible but space is somewhat limited so let me know if that would be your preference so we can map out sleeping spaces.

Is there anything else you would like more information about? Let me know and I can do a Q & A. We will also look into starting up a Reunion website of some sort as well.

Congratulations.. Brigham City

New temple for Brigham City.

Just in time. Now Mom and Dad can walk to the Temple. Any ideas where it will be located? The old Central School site?

President Monson said that there are 130 temples now operating, 16 already announced or under construction and five more announced today. So that means Brigham has a good chance of being #150 which would go well with Mom and Dad's record.

St. Louis #50
Boston #100
Brigham City ~#150

Heritage of Faith

When we were back home last, Mom passed on to me this family Bible. It's available for anyone to see when you come and vist us. In case that's not practical, here are some photo's to help you feel the experience.

2010 Family Reunion

Hi Everyone,
I've had a couple conversations with mom's cousin Brenda (Stoddard) about the family reunion next year. (Uncle Roy's daughter.) She is in charge of their family reunion and thought it would be fun to combine the two groups. So far we have talked about still having it in Klamath Falls but the date is up for discussion. Would you prefer . . .

July 4th weekend

July 24th weekend

Please let me know so we can start getting things pinned down a bit better. Once we have decided on a weekend, I will start gathering all the information as to where people can stay, how much things cost and what kind of activities to plan. I know it's early, so for now we just want to get the date.
