Do you have multiple generations of family members who have participated in the summer camp program or retreats at Glisson through the years?
Through our summer camp survey over the past four years, we've been able to identify dozens of families with deep, multi-generational connections to Glisson. These records include more than 75 families which represent three generations, and more than a dozen which have reached a fourth generation of Glisson involvement - and we're certain even more are out there.
We want to collect as much information about our multi-generational Glisson families as we can. We're asking all our alumni whose families include a multi-generational Glisson legacy to help us learn more about the depth of their connections to this place.
The link below will take you to a short, eleven-question survey. Please take a few moments and tell us about your family's deep connection to Glisson:
Kelly Hartley Turner (green shirt) is pictured above during Singing-on-the-Porch at Glisson Day 2010 with her husband Ron (blue shirt).
Kelly and her her two daughters Erin (red shirt) and Katie (not pictured) are part of the four-generation legacy begun by Kelly's grandmother Eunice Ray Phillips.
Below, the three-generation Ena Smith Moore legacy is also represented at Glisson Day 2010. Ena Moore (front, center, holding hiking stick) was a summer camp volunteer in 1947 while a student at LaGrange College.
Ena's husband Lige (also holding a hiking stick) served as Chair of the Glisson Board of Directors at two different points in time. Lige and Ena are surrounded by their four adult children and several of their grandchildren, all of whom are Glisson alumni.
"Our son looks forward to camp all year long. He is already asking when he will be going back. We are so appreciative of the amazing job you do with our special kids!"
