Here is a photo from the 1985 reunion. Sadly there is no little Will, Dan, or Jesse, but I'm sure you can all pick out some familiar faces.

Zach Turnbull in the news

Here is a link to an article featuring Zach Turnbull (one of Hugh's sons). It comes from The Planet News in Jackson Hole Wyoming. The article talks about Zach's role as a bear management specialist for the Wyoming Game and Fish Department, and the busy year he has had.

Uncle Paul's Stories Part 4

Click on image to enlarge
When Grandpa was in high school at Beaver Falls, the basketball team was playing a league championship game. There were four teams playing in the playoff. Our gym was not large and each team was assigned 1/4 of the tickets. So, even though our team was to play for first place, tickets sold out quickly, and we weren't going to get to see the game.
Uncle John and I wanted to see the game. We knew the layout of the building and about the tunnel that connected the boiler room to the locker room. So, John managed to leave a window unlocked in his home room on ground level. We managed to get into the classroom without any trouble. But there were maybe 25-30 others with all the same idea, and police officers flushed us all out of the building, loaded us into the paddy wagon and then, into jail.
From about 8:00 p.m. to about 1:00 a.m., we taught the whole group to play battleship and generally had a pretty good time in the jail. When they let us go home, we were concerned about our mother's reaction for we were expected to be home as soon as the game was over. To our surprise, she wasn't upset at all, maybe relieved that we were O.K.

Dan's Wedding

My brother Dan got married last week (Sept. 1) to his new bride Brook. The ceremony was in Lititz, so I got to go back home for a couple of days along with my fiancee. All of the planning came together, and we all enjoyed a lovely day. I didn't have time to grab any new Turnbull pictures when I was back for the wedding, but might have some new stuff to show in the next week or two.
