Reunion 2001

Beaumont, Texas

May 9 -- May 12, 2001

Dorothy and Edwin Roberts hosted this event for the fourth (yes, fourth!) time and planned a gathering that everyone enjoyed.

Dorothy, Edwin and the whole Roberts clan joined together to make everyone feel at home. They scheduled enough activities to keep it interesting and they even invited us into their home for a real Texas-style barbecue. If you missed it, you may never know how the Tur-Duck-En came to be.

I suspect I speak on behalf of everyone who attended when I say,

"Thank you"

We took many photographs of the festivities and have posted them here for you to see. We hope you enjoy them.
