Canyon Lakers make annual trek to Silver Strand


For the past six years, a group of Canyon Lakers spend quality time camping, making memories and creating a tradition with their families and friends at Silver Strand State Beach in Coronado, California. Every year a few more families are added to this growing group.

From the traditional pot luck dinners to the annual bike ride to the Coronado Island candy store, it’s always an adventure with this crew.

Every year the group takes a group photo at the lifeguard tower and sends it to The Friday Flyer. “It’s amazing to see how the kids have grown each year. We are quite a group to watch as the adults try to line up the kids to take the photos, but the memories are priceless,” said Mary Jaramillo.

Participating families are Dave and Jully Martilla family, Joe and Linda Quinn family, Devon and Jen Boatman family, Jason and Kelli Perkins family, Patrick and Tammy Runion family, Jim and Karen Wentzel Family, Joe and Penny Gully family, Douglas family, Brunson family, Allen family, Davidson family, Borchardt family, Steve and Heather Gotoski family, Greg and Melissa Albright family, Bobby and Meredith Kielty family and Jerry and Mary Jaramillo.
