Twin Valleys Thanks Wardsville

Mary,  my thanks to you and your cohort for the magical opportunity you gave to the former Twin Valley people to come together, especially in your beautiful town of Wardsville. I doubt that a TVS reunion would have happened again without some unusual catalyst, and it was probably Georges last opportunity to have such an experience, to be together with so many former staff and students.  I myself can say that I had the best weekend of my life.  I am so impressed with the overall organization of the event, the meal was exceptionally good and I was thrilled to see that Wardsville has grown into a beautiful village.  I always waited to see that sign change beyond 200!  I think the reunion has launched a BIG resurgence in communications amongst us, that is the special spinoff of the weekend and  on top of that, I will have beautiful memories of Wardsville forever.                             Patricia Kristie (formerly Bullied)

Dear Mary, Just wanted to send you a note of thanks to let you know how much I appreciate the fact that you sought out the old Twin Valleys people to join the Wardsville Bicentennial.  What a great thought you had and because you did and act on it, I was able to reconnect with 3 dear friends I had not seen or heard from in over 30 years.  It was life changing for me and I am forever in your debt.  Thank you so much.  Also, you and the people of Wardsville did such a nice job with the event and made us feel so welcomed.  I am humbled at your greatness! in peace,

Mary Lisa Zimmerman, Morton, Illinois, United States of America

One thought on “Twin Valleys Thanks Wardsville

  1. I agree with Patricia. As the organizer of the Twin Valleys reunion I can honestly say that our reunion was made possible by the initial contact by Mary Simpson asking if we would like to be a part of your celebration. By that simple act she opened a floodgate of opportunities for ex-TVS’ers to reunite again both physically and spiritually. She helped to provide a space in Wardsville for us all to gather together (thank you to the ladies at the Presbyterian church and especially Sheila for her wonderful support), arranged for a photographer to take a beautiful group photo shot (Thank you to Dave Chidley and Heather at Package Nanny for making copies available to us all), and allowed us to show a little bit of who we were and are at the United Church, even going that extra step and bringing in cold water for all of us in the church when it was so hot in there. A more gracious hostess you will not find anywhere. The dinner was wonderful and provided a very nice time for relaxation before our evenings began either there or back in London where many of us retired to for a more private gathering. The town of Wardsville was extremely gracious to us all and we are forever thankful for your kind welcome and hospitality. Thank you to Denise for heading up such a successful weekend and showcasing Wardsville so successfully.
