The Grapeview Gang Reunion was held at the Claim Jumper in Tukwila October 17, 2016. In attendance was Laurie Somers, Linda Gilbert Milam, Linda Spooner Humphrey, Diane Peters Allen and Spec Earl Fulmer. 1 of 5 Terry Roberts Mills having lunch with sister, brother and sister-in-law. 11/2016 2 of 5 Neal Close & Laurie Somers in front of Close's Irondale home on 20 Nov 2016 ready to head out for a Sunday morning walk. Neal is a regular and avid walker, Laurie not so much. Living just two miles apart we enjoy the opportunity to get together & walking is a great way to do it.

When I retired in 2000, Kathy and I moved from Edmonds, Wa to Lake Chelan, to enjoy the sunny skies, four seasons, a lot less traffic, and a more relaxed lifestyle. While we very much enjoyed living in Chelan, we sold our house and moved to Liberty Lake, Wa in 2015, to be closer to our kids and grandkids. We wanted to be closer and spend more time with our grandkids as they progressed through grade school and high school, including the many activities they were involved in. It is really nice to be close to them and have more time with our kids and grand kids before the grand kids move on to college and independence. While it was very hard to leave good friends in both Edmonds and Lake Chelan, we are recreating ourselves again here in Liberty Lake. We are very involved in church activities and getting to know and meet new friends.
Kathy and I have always enjoyed traveling and are spending a lot of our free time traveling to places in the United States and Europe that we thoroughly enjoy. Kathy came up with a great idea that is working out very well. She suggested that as part of our grandkids education, we would take each one to Europe when they are thirteen years old to experience different cultures, history, art, customs, and lifestyles. It is working out great. We have taken two of them already and will be taking a third this June (2017), with two more to go in subsequent years.
