Denio family adds View tie-dying to annual reunion activities

The Denio family holds a family reunion in Old Forge every year, usually over Memorial Day weekend. Each year they plan a variety of activities for the event and this year they all took part in a special tiedye activity at View.

View instructor Barbara Getty led the activity, offering step-by-step directions on how to dye their shirts in various patterns.

Once the shirts were finished and taken back to reunion central to be washed and dried, the Denio clan posed for a group shot wearing their shirts.

The family enjoyed lots of time together, but also branched out over the course of the weekend to do some things on their own.

“Then we came together again for a big family dinner,” Martha Denio said.

Maryellen Denio said that the tie-dye group activity was something new for the group this year.

“We’ve played softball—which was semi-hysterical,” she said, “and we usually play the German card game, Euchere. It’s lots of fun.”
