What would you do if you had the opportunity to meet with some of our country’s founders? Would you be interested in listening to Thomas Jefferson talk about drafting the Declaration of Independence? How about listening as Betsy Ross explained how and why she designed the first American flag? Each generation leaves its mark. Although, throughout the ages, landscapes and populations have been devastated by folly, there are monuments and institutions that stand to bear witness to the vision, dedication, and perseverance of their founders.  George Santayana’s famous declaration, “Those who cannot remember history are condemned to repeat it,” urges us to learn from history so that we do not repeat our mistakes. However, knowing one’s history can also inspire and encourage us to follow our dreams and build a better world.

We encourage one and all to join us in the Oak Tree Lodge on the evening of April 11 to learn the unique history of our Oak Tree Campus. The history of the creation of Oak Tree School is not only the history of a handful of buildings. It is the history of the San Juan Ridge Community directly communicated by those who were there, a generation of founders whose mark remains indelible and legacy lives on.

Please see “Oak Tree School Remembered” by Jeff Adams for more details.
