Geneseo Reunion July 21-28, 2018

By High Priest David R. Van Fleet

The Remnant Record 2018 - Volume 1

The Geneseo, Illinois, reunion was held from July 21st–28th with a large turnout from both Remnant and Restoration members. The campground is a large, square, level area surrounded by white pines and other trees, boasting several buildings within the perimeter of the trees. The church is on the northeast portion of the area, with a fellowship building on the west side where classes were held and the evening canteen was located. The lodge and cabins just south of this fellowship building were filled with campers, and the west trailer parking area to the north was filled with trailers pulled there from various parts of the country.

Services were held in the church sanctuary, and meals were provided in the church basement. The youth fellowshipped constantly in the recreation area when not in class, with many becoming close friends that continued to correspond after the reunion ended. The youth also enjoyed recreation with a hayride followed by the navigation of a corn maze, and on another afternoon traveled to a swimming pool for a cool dip.
