What started as a normal Memorial Day Weekend, turned into an incredible walk down memory lane here at KIVU. Certainly we wish to reach out and Thank all the people that make America a wonderful place to express ourselves and afford the opportunities to do things like KIVU around the world.
We had staff members arriving all weekend for the annual Alumni Weekend get together, and we saw old friends from all the way back to 2001. I don't know if I've ever laughed so hard reminiscing about the "golden days" of camp as I did on Saturday night when everyone just shared their most valuable memory.
I've also never taken the time to really sit back and think about how impactful this place has been for so many people. Nearly 15K high school students have walked through the gates here in Southwest Colorado. Nearly 1500 University Students have given their summers to show those High School Students a Good Time.
And the impact...well, it was quite sobering to see how the principles they learned at KIVU set the foundation for family, career, and social well-ness. I'm just overwhelmed at the way God has used Jamie Jo and I in the lives of so many. I'm humbled to see what wonderful people God has given us to share life with.
To all the KIVU alumni both here and those who couldn't make it, Thanks for making life so fun!!
Here's a short Podcast of one of my buddies who came around 2002. I think you'll love it!
