Old station in Whalan, now a museum of sorts.

We spent 5 days in Lanesboro, MN. Lanesboro is 5 miles from Larry's hometown of Whalan. He went to Lanesboro High School here. We camped in Sylvan Park, It's the city park right next to the High School. We arrived on Wednesday to a basically empty campground. By Friday it was full with rv's and tents.

We spent Friday night and Saturday night with about 30 of the 1964 Lanesboro HS graduates and their spouses at the VFW. Lots of memories were exchanged along with a few drinks and lots of good food. Larry was surprised how many he recognized after 50 years.

Saturday night was the reunion at the Country Club. Fun to visit with and exchange memories from 50 years ago. Sad that 50 years went by so fast. Hope the young people today understand how fast it goes by.

We spent Sunday in the hometown of Whalan looking around and visiting with old friends.

Back to Rochester tomorrow to spend time with Larry's sisters.
