Once there was a Woolever Reunion...
The Woolever Reunion 2000 has now come and gone, but sweet memories linger. Nothing can compare to the encounter with your own, especially when memories were rooted in childhood joys. Eventually, the distraction of adult journeys, and the tyranny of distance gives way to longing. Then comes the reuniting!
Where: Des Moines, Iowa
When: Friday, June 23, 2000 through Sunday, June 25, 2000.
