I did not attend this gathering in British Columbia on July 22, 2016. These photos were posted on Facebook by Linda Beacham, and I’ve collected them here for a more permanent display.

Most of the attendees were descendants of Anna (Holm) Carlson. She had immigrated from Sweden to Kenora, Ontario, and then moved to British Columbia with her children after her husband August Carlson was killed in a railroad accident. Descendants of Alida (Holm) Carlson and Carl Holm also attended.

The main event of this reunion was a dinner hosted by Robin and EdO’ Brien. At the O’Brien’s, one activity was signing a quilt commenorating the reunion. Another event was a visit to the Capilano Suspension Bridge.
