Terry Bell describes the gathering:
– We had a wonderful reunion but not all our guests that said they were coming showed up. We had about 170 guests. Some people were not able to come due to illness, work or the distance. We had guests from British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.
Some people came Friday night and played cards at the school, until two in the morning. We had a fun Saturday. The men played a lot of cards, horse shoes and some soft ball. But mainly everyone visited and shared our family memories. We had beautiful weather and no rain until eight in the evening which lasted for an hour. But the school was a good size so had lots of room for everyone. The family wants to gather again in 2015 during the month of July
We had a buffet supper, Ham, Turkey, Deer sausage,Chicken, Meat Balls, Cold cuts, Baked Beans, numerous different salads and assorted dainties and cake. One cake, had a Norwegian and Canadian flag and had ‘Lillejord reunion’ written on it.
We had the last remaining Great Grandchildren of Hans and children of Olaf (Ernie Lillejord) and Kristian ( Ken Lillejord, Aggie Benson, and Olga Froh) pose with the cake and cut the cake.
