Every tradition starts somewhere!
On June 19, 1985 Barb and Dick said, "I do", and the Itt Team was officially launched (see family photo from wedding weekend). The impetus to promote this gathering was spawned last October at Casey and Stephanie’s wedding when all 13 of us were in attendance.
It vividly reaffirmed that we all have something extraordinarily special
that needs to be regularly celebrated. The following quotes from
various family member over the last few years only reinforce
“I wish we could have Christmas at the Siggins’ 3 or 4 times a year.”
“We aren’t getting any younger.”
“There are at least 5 or 6 new nieces and nephews that I have not met.”
“Some of the coolest people I know are in my family.”
“I wish I could spend more time with Jim Weisent.”
So, let’s all make an effort to get together for a long weekend every two years and build on our great legacy! Check out video from Christmas 1992 to refresh your memories of our early days. (Thanks to Tim Bohn -- videographer extraordinaire!)
A gathering of all of Barb and Dick's descendants and their families for three days of food, fun and frivolity!
