Names were not collected for those in our pictures. I would not know who most of the people were and the addresses, phone numbers are even harder to find out. Many of the older people will have passed on.

Before family conferences, student conferences were held where sleeping space and meals were provided.

When family conferences started, the places used for students were no longer suitable. Various rural conference grounds were tried until quite a nice one became available in Alix, AB. We tried to keep the conference between Calgary and Edmonton to allow most interested people to attend easily.

Most of the earlier places had limited sleeping quarters. We had to choose places where we could meet inside and still have lots of space to park and put trailers and tents on the property. If the weather cooperated we held many events outside.

The families that came to the conferences often brought their own food and ate together rather than in one large group.
