A North American reunion is held every two years. The most recent one was hosted by Ralph and Gretchen Wintermute and was held in Santa Clarita, California, in July of 2015. The next reunion will be held in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia in the Spring or Summer of 2017. Our hosts for the reunion will be Ed and Donna Ellis along with Donna's brother, Ed Wintermute and his wife Linda. There are still several details to be ironed out by our hosts but as things get finalized we will keep you informed. If you are planning to attend the reunion and you don't have a passport, it would be a good idea to start thinking about getting one.
