Udaleku 1979 Photo
We also had a response to our request for old Udaleku photos. Marylynn Belzarena sent us a shot from the 1979 San Francisco camp that she attended. The photo has now been added to the collection. If you have a group shot from any of the years that are missing, we'd love to add them. Just email the photo to firstname.lastname@example.org. To enjoy this and other Udaleku photos click here. Eskerrik Asko Marylynn!
