Sitting here a week later still coming down off the "high" from that AWESOME reunion!

The word "magical" keeps coming to mind when I think about it.

The laughs/giggles. the renewing of old friendships, the re-telling of well-worn old local tales, the dancing like a kid and the frequent hugs were indeed magical!

The organizers and volunteers all deserve big THANKS and hugs for creating and making the whole event possible.

A "Mid Summer Night's Dream" for sure!

This was our first reunion, and likely our last. Mary (McDonell) celebrated her 1963 graduation with 4 of her classmates, Rod McLeod, Ann & Lawrence Roland, and Doug Jordan.
We were very impressed with the entire event, and enjoyed every moment. We had family commitments on the Sunday bus trip,so were unable to return to Shilo.

We want to thank all those involved in organizing,and staging the reunion, a great job, well done.

Whoever said “you can never go back,” has never been to a Shilobrat reunion. The Polo Park venue was perfect for our event. The wrap-around lobby lounge accomodated the well attended Friday night Meet & Greet. The spacious Aaltos Restaurant with both menu and buffet choices was ideal for our large group dinner and the smaller groups that gathered over the three days. The open and well lit Sports Bar hosted the Saturday Meet & Greet and the wind-down gatherings after the planned activities, the Event Center, previously a night club, set up pefectly for our featured bands, dancing, and audio visual presentations...and if you still had time to spare, Polo Park and the surrounding area was a shopper's wonderland.

For some, the trip to Shilo brought back memories of where our journey in life began. Whether it was only part of our youth or all of it, Shilo forged an indelible legacy of experiences and friends that remain with us forever. The success of Shilobrat reunions is a testament

Thank you, to the organizers, Boyd Van Aggelen, Denise Pike, Karen Middleton, Gerald Brown and Doug Jordan for having the vision, then pushing it to the max.

Thank you, to the members of ShiloBrats web team Lonnie Frankow, Edie Walker, Faye Helgason and Ken Jenkins for the promotion and audio visual presentations.

Thank you, to Greg Leskiw, Don Jordan and MC Bill Brown for hosting the fabulous evening of music and entertainment.

Thank you, to Jules Xzavier and the Shilo Stag for photos and covering the Shilo reunion visit.

Most of all, Thank you Shilobrats for coming through once again to make the '60's Reunion 2018' the special and memorable event that it was. :!clap: :!clap: :!clap:

It was a fantastic weekend in Winnipeg & Shilo, I want to put out a BIG THUMBS UP to all of those who worked so hard to put this together, I wont mention any names as the mind gets a little forgetful and I would no doubt miss mentioning someone you all know who you are.

To all the Brats that could not make it you missed a fantastic weekend with super entertainment that did take us back to our youth, meeting up with long lost friends and Brats that we did not know or did not remember. All of the stories brought back a lot of good memories that had been forgotten or were very foggy.

I do have to thank Gerald Brown on his super record keeping with his hard work Brats will always have a recorded HISTORY OF THE BRATS AND THEIR EXPERIENCES IN SHILO.

Hope enjoys the rest of the Summer, George

The reunion is actually called '60's Reunion 2018 with brats from the 50's & 70's' There is so much crossover where you may have gone to grade school in the 5o's or 60's, then high school in the 60's or 70's. It really doesn't matter when you were in Shilo, your experiences, and many of your teachers would be the same. Your friends may have been the older or younger brother or sister of someone at the Reunion. If you are a Shilobrat, just come, you won't be out of place. We welcome all Shilobrats.
