The Stenoien Family turned out in strength on June 10th, 2000, 50 years to the day after the death of Ole O. Stenoien. I include here photos of the day for your enjoyment.
Thanks to Iola and company for organizing this event. Thanks to all who made the trip, both from near and from far.
Thanks to daughter Kirstin for snapping some of these shots and to Iola for identifying all the young ones and correcting my mistakes!
