A reunion of the Good Samaritan United Methodist Church (Cupertino, CA) Youth Group from the 1970s will take place soon – on Saturday, August 7, at the church affectionately called "Good Sam." Anyone who attended "Camp Celebration" during the early 1970s is invited!
Registration/gathering begins at 4:30 p.m., with dinner at 5:30.
The Youth Group from 1969 to 1975 was led by the Rev. Ernie Bringas, under the direction of senior pastor, the Rev. Roy Dunn – and during its peak, had weekly attendance of 300+ – fed by 12 high schools on three nights each week.
The group reunites every five years, and at the last reunion, in 2005, 105 people attended. The coordinator of this year's event, Ted Larson, projects similar attendance this time around.
