New "Life Was Calling" Story

Now that many of us have finished the main course of our life, we are hopefully in the dessert stage looking back and thinking "What the hell happened?". Your story might not end up in the biography section of Chapters, but it most certainly would be of interest to those who knew you before your journey began, and you can pick and choose the parts to tell. Read the fascinating Life Was Calling stories Edie has artfully compiled and think about how yours would look ... we would like to read it too. Check the new Life Was Calling link in the side menu below Special Edition for all the stories.


Shilo was a special place for many of us in our early years, and for some, Shilo is a special place because you were born there, or in Brandon to parents posted in Shilo.

ShiloBornBrats has been created to give recognition to our home grown brat pack by assembling a page of trivia for each year we have a ShiloBornBrat name for.

If you or a brother or sister were born when your family lived in Shilo, and your name does not appear in that year, please contact ShiloBrats to be included, your name and year will be added.

*Updated ShiloBornBrats pages for the following years: 1948, 1951, 1952, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1961, 1963

The Remembering section has been updated to the end of 2020 with reported passings of Shilobrats. Report any known passings to our Contact us form or to Please include, if known, year of birth and passing, and any known siblings or a link to their obituary. Shilobrats are such a close knit community that any passing will leave ripples in it's wake.

The Next Reunion?

There have been several attempts to organize both mini and major reunions for this year that have had to be abandoned because of our unknown upcoming situation with the virus. It will likely be in 2022 that any new plans can be safely evaluated.

In the meantime relive the great memories of Reunion 2018 by clicking on the book in the copy below, and on the book when it opens.

Reunion 2018 Special Edition coffee table book

It started as an inquiry from a Reunion 2018 attendee, "When I looked at the Reunion 2018 photos and stories on our website, I enjoyed the Special Edition Edith had created. I asked her would it be possible to print a copy of the Reunion 2018 story" - Judy Rioux (Hummel)

With a little research, we learned that it could be produced as a coffee table quality book from your local Costco photo service. A test copy was made for evaluation, and Wow! take a look!
