New Friends - Old Friends

Recently, Anne and I attended two get-togethers with friends with whom our relationships spanned over forty years. They were two different groups of people that represented two distinct periods of our lives.

On Saturday, July 18, several of our new Sun City Carolina Lakes friends, informally know as The Group, and their families had a picnic at the Lake House pavilion. These new friends come from Maryland, New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Massachusetts, Florida and North Carolina. We share the common bond of being part of this new community and look forward to many good times in the future. More pictures of the Gathering

Then on Saturday, July 25, we attended a "reunion" of several our longtime friends. We have all known each other for over forty years. We had the celebration at Steve Parham's townhouse in Ocean City, Maryland. I first met Steve at Illinois Wesleyan University in 1961. Others in attendance were Steve’s brother Carroll, Bobby and Sonny from the Camden, New Jersey area and Clyde from DC. We reminisced and reflected on the “old days” when we did some wild and crazy things. It was good to for old friends to get together one more time. More pictures of the Friends
