Wow. It is hard for me to name one because I have a lot. However, the 70th anniversary celebrations of QSoE are the best memories. I can remember the sound of laughter, the sound of the burgers on the grill, and the sound of calling everybody to record a video to put into the time capsule. These were very sweet memories!
