Start making your plans now for the next PAHS reunion, Paris In The Northwest.
Your reunion committee is in the early planning stages for an all-classes reunion during the spring, summer, or fall of 2018, in Portland, Oregon. Tentative plans call for a Thursday – Sunday reunion, with both group activities and time for your own explorations in one of the nicest parts of the Pacific Northwest.
We will publish further details as plans become firm.
The following is note from Carl Chaffee, Judy Clowes Chaffee's husband, regarding Judy's interment. He asked me to let any friends know in case anyone would like to be there:
"We will have a family and friends gathering on the 24th of June, 2017 and would like to invite you. It will be in Camptown PA.
Following are the details:
The plan is to overnight in B and B's close to camptown, PA- as there are no 4 seasons hotels close by. I've asked the funeral director for recommendations, the service will be in the late morning of the 24th at the Camptown Cemetery followed by noon lunch in a nearby Wyalusing Victorian Hotel with the appropriate amount of champagne. The dress code is "FUN."
Camptown is in the middle of nowhere, about 3 hours north of Scranton and 4.5 hours from washington.
. Camptown is the ancestral home of the Smith (my) family. they are all interred in the family plot in the Camptown Cemetery As I will be interred there, judy and I wanted to be together. It is a beautiful site in the rolling hills. I'd like to arrange a short tour of Camptown for the family so the little ones have some idea of their heritage. For a tourist attraction nearby is the "Asylum" A refuge city (in logs) built in the l1700's as an escape for the French Royal Family- Marie Antoinette, etc.. Needless to say neither she or her head ever made it there.
More as it becomes available. I hope you can join us. Please make any friends aware who think would like to come. I'll send out the B & B list this month
