Cresson TB Sanatorium Remembered

2011 Reunion Review


On August 6 & 7,  2011 a reunion of Cresson San Alumni was held at the American Legion in Cresson, Pa.  Over 150 guests were in attendance.  The reunion featured guest speakers, displays of san memorabilia and a memorial service at Union Cemetery. 

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
An event of this magnitude requires much work and I want to give special thanks to the following people:

Patrick and Etta Albright, Dave Huber, Tom and Dorothy De Angelo, Brenda Kalwasinski 
for all their work in organizing and carrying out the details of the reunion.  The reunion would not have been possible without their selfless efforts.

Fred Connacher and his daughter Theresa McConnell who researched, designed, constructed and exhibited the scale model of the Cresson San Complex.  The model was not only admired by all, but became a visual aid for many san stories. 

Robert Hogue and Scott Eberhart of the Cresson American Legion for coordinating the venue with us and for their generous offer to provide the facility at minimum cost.

Ken Cameron, Superintendent of SCI Cresson, for allowing us to film on the prison grounds at Grace Chapel and Children's House and Rebecca Reifer, Superintendent's Assistant, for being our escort during the filming.

To all the businesses and organizations that donated door prizes. To the local high school and religious ed students who donated their time and effort, including those from the Religious Ed program at St Francis Xavier Church CCD program, Penn Cambria High School and Bishop Carroll HS.
