The reunion was a big success and a big thank you from me to Linda and Joe Filla for planning it. My wife Lisa was very happy to share the photos and documents that she has been able to gather from Ancestry.com, and my plan is to make those available RIGHT HERE on this site as soon as possible, most likely in the next week. My Dad was also very touched by everyone’s interest in the photos that he’s taken both this year and previous years.
Here is the information I received in the mail regarding the Arconati Family Reunion. I’ve added relevant links to maps and some other stuff I could find regarding the park.

As the Arconati Family continues to grow, it is hard to keep track of everyone’s current address, so please pass this information along to any of your immediate family who did not get this note.

Can’t wait to see everyone!
I also found this link on TheCabinet.com’s Dark Destinations pages regarding the legend surrounding the lake and park as well as the waterfall near where we will be having the reunion. This is going to be fun! We will see you there.
