Patterson Reunion December 26, 2000 - January 1, 2001
This page is primarily a
pictorial record of our first
in Santa Cruz.
While we met nearly every Christmas in our large family home for
decades, once Greatgrandfather David Patterson retired, Dave and Lucie
soon sold the house and moved to a condominium. The last family meeting
in Palos Verdes was for their 50th wedding in August 1996. Although we
tried to all meet at Christmas in the condo, it didn't really work out
for all of us. As a result, Don and Sue didn't see each other for
almost five years.
This changed when Grandmother Linda and Grandfather Dave acquired a
beach house in Santa Cruz, and the summer after they moved in Linda
decided "it would be nice to have a big Patterson family get together
in Santa Cruz." Little did she know what she was starting.
