Photos: Small attendance, cameras banned, V-Week somber, lonesome, 2017 maybe the last
September 1, 2017
V-Week 2017 is over.
It was marked by an unusually small attendance. And, according to sources, the prevailing mood, often unspoken, seemed to be: “Something is up.”
Overall, Vanguard was seen very little. Who knows if it may be the last Vanguard Week.
Clare Bronfman continues to maintain there were 270-290 people there, including 45-50 children. That number seems exaggerated based on reports from eyewitnesses.
I expect more reports now that people are away from the potentially prying computers of Clare Bronfman.
Posting of pictures earlier this week from the dining hall and group photos at Silver Bay show few people. The dining room pictures evidently perturbed some people since V-Week organizers appeared upset and arranged to forbid cameras in the dining area.
This extended to the staff of Silver Bay.
Yesterday, Vanguard was seen walking the grounds at Silver Bay in the afternoon with two women. He was up from his slumbers early.
Overall, this may have been the worst V-Week ever in terms of attendance.
Many more people are expected to leave the organization shortly
