Reunion - 2001
Home Our Family Genealogy Greg Says Trips

In July of 2001, as has been done every two years for quite some time, the descendants of Phillip and Jane McAndrew, from Lost Nation, Iowa, gathered for a family reunion, this time in Colorado Springs . Over 110 relatives attended, plus assorted other friends and supporters. A profound longing to embrace family, and to celebrate and nourish each other's lives, is the driving energy.
