What mainly happens is this: groups are arranged a few months in advance, leaders get their groups, they plan a song, cheer, skit, game, and flag, they go to Catalina, have a blast, and (ta-da!) have one awesome trip. That's what it appears to be. In reality, however, the trip is so much more. I remember being assigned my group, and no one was particularly thrilled. Every student in my team had never really hung out together before, so meetings were awkward and sometimes difficult, and I think some of us were thinking, "Oh, gosh, this will ruin my whole trip!" Still, we were all excited to go, but on the way there we all hung out with the friends we've always had. I think there must just be something magical to Catalina Island, because once we all got there, everything seemed to work out. I began to find that my group was telling ME, "Come on, let's practice something!" They were cooperating and just, all in all, starting to get along really well. Every other group's song, cheer, skit, and game, as well as my group's, seemed to come together.

Maybe it's that we were all scared together (snorkeling), competitive together (cabin points), excited together (winning certain events), or maybe the fact that we were all stuck in cabins together. Just being TOGETHER. Bonding? Yes! Our groups of students we hardly knew all that well became knitted together in ties of friendship that are bound to last. On the last day of the Catalina trip, I got to thinking. What if I had gotten put in a group with all of my friends, like I'd originally hoped for? Then I realized: this was so much better. I made unforgettable friendships with people I'd never talked to before. This was an important lesson that I'll never forget. One student's "Morning Inspiration" was all about how our class is a family. Now I can relate to that. Before this trip, I sort of saw "my friends" and "everyone else". Now I see that we're much more than that. Everyone now has made a connection with everyone else. Next time you're put in a situation were you're with someone you don't know veery well, grasp it! Like Catalina, you may make memories to last a lifetime. I'd like to live as a poor man with lots of money. -- Pablo Picasso Gregory D. Lewis April 12, 1952 - October 13, 2010 Gregory Dan Lewis passed away peacefully and gently at home surrounded by family on the morning of October 13th. He was 58 years old. Greg was born in Puyallup, Washington to Betty Lea Biggs and Donald Greig Lewis, both of Washington state. He moved to Pacific Beach when he was two years old, 2 blocks from the ocean. His solace and joy in his young life was body surfing whenever he could and sailing Mission Bay with his brother and dad. After graduating Mission Bay High School in 1969 he actively served in the Air Force from 1973-1977. After being honorably discharged, Greg relocated to Flagstaff, Arizona, where he lived for 30 years and met his wife Cristi. Together they moved to Denver, Colorado, where they got married and had their first child. After another move to Arizona and another birth, they moved to Julian in 2007 to raise their kids and be close to the ocean that Greg loved. Greg was on the Spencer Valley School Board from 2009-2010. A celebration for Greg will be held at the Lewis household on November 6, 2010 at 3:30 pm.

To those of us who loved and knew her, both in the Julian community and during her past life, she will be greatly missed. Over the years she gave unselfishly of her time and resources to numerous community organizations, activities and individuals, asking neither recognition nor reward. Penny and her husband Bob moved to her old family vacation home in Julian in 1990 after a 30 year Telephone Company career, retiring as a successful middle manager with numerous Operator Services, Business Office, Computer Systems and Project Management assignments behind her. Born in Long Beach Navel Hospital in December, 1941, the daughter of a military nurse and navel aviator than stationed at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, her mother and unborn child having been recently evacuated prior to December 7th.. Penny, and later a brother and sister were "navy brats" moving numerous times with her father's deployments. After the war, while with her parents in Hawaii, Penny attended the well known Ponohoe Preparatory School. Later moves would take her to Cape May, New Jersey, Point Mugu, California, and finally San Diego where she graduated from Helix High School, and finally from San Diego State University after becoming employed by Pacific Telephone Company. Penny enjoyed a successful professional career while raising two children from a previous marriage as a single mother. She met and married her later life husband Bob, also a career Telephone Company employee, moving to Julian after retirement. Penny soon became active in numerous causes, groups and organizations including helping to form the Majestic Pines Community Services District and serving as a Iorg time Water Board Member. She was a long time member of groups such as the Julian Womans Club, Julian Triangle Club and yearly Old Time Melodrama, Julian Hand Bells, Red Hats, Julian Historical Society (former board member), and a member of the Julian Community United Methodist Church. She loved singing, participating in the local church choir and yearly Messiah concert. Penny loved children and worked for over ten years, first as a volunteer than as an employed Registrar of YMCA Camp Marston where she made many loving friends. Penny celebrated her life several years ago with a gathering of close women friends at Warner Springs while, as she said, "she could still exchange joy with them." For this reason no formal service is planned, her farewell already having been given. Those wishing to remember her may make a donation to the Julian Womans Club, P.O. Box 393, Julian Calif, 92036, the proceeds of which will be used as a High School Scholarship in her name. Penny is survived by her Husband Bob Adam, Son Terry, Daughter Janice, Grand Daughters Anna and Darcy, and Grandson Donavon. Penny passed peacefully in the arms of her family after exchanging personal good-bye's with those around her. She was loved.
