Website of the Day
Welcome to the Crooked Tree Village Reunion 2008, an idea borne by one of our villageís very own daughters, Linda Crawford Elul, who felt it was time to reunite with our long lost friends and families and reminisce about the good old times. The Reunion will take place on Friday, June 27th thru Sunday, June 29th, 2008 in the beautiful and tranquil Village of Crooked Tree. This site will be used to provide information about the reunion, so please visit it regularly to learn more about this SPECTACULAR EVENT that will go down as one of the most memorable in the history of Belize! COME ONE, COME ALL, COME HOME TO CELEBRATE.

After leaving Belize, Lindy went to each of the Central American capitals, around the tip of South America, back north through the islands, and returned to St. Louis. His famous airplane was retired from service following this trip and now hangs in the Air and Space Museaum of the Smithsonian in Washington.
