Group photograph of current and past Itascans gathered to celebrate Itasca's 40th Anniversary.

Unable to gather safely en masse in 2021, Itasca finally celebrated its 40th anniversary in May, marking four decades of discovery, service, and family - not to mention many BBQs, Halloween contests, holiday parties, and bowling outings. Nearly 100 current and past Itascans and their partners attended. Our founder, Prof. Charles Fairhurst presented a short video about the origins of Itasca which you can watch below.
