Gunnison, UT – Charlie and Bessie Inouye met at an internment camp during World War II. They settled in Gunnison, Utah and raised six children. Those children, their grandchildren and great-grandchildren have been coming back to Gunnison for a family reunion for many years. But now that Charles and Bessie are gone, their extended family sponsors a creative arts camp for children. This year it's even more significant as Gunnison celebrates the 150th anniversary of its settlement. KUER's Dan Bammes has the story.
