In Memoriam

In Memoriam of those that contributed many great memories and endless hours of volunteering and entertainment to the Spirit of Vincennes Rendezvous. 


June Keene

Past Rendezvous Director

It is with deep sadness that we share our loss of long time Rendezvous Director, June Yeske Keene.  June passed on from this life on October 19,2022 and is Survived by her husband George Keene of 35 years. June was the first "Non-Founding" member to lead the Spirit of Vincennes in its early years and she, along with her husband, were the long time chairs of our Encampment Committee.  She will truly be missed. A tree is being planted on the battlefield in her honor.

Eric Scites

Faire Wynds

Known for being the "FireBreathing Man" as an Annual Entertainer at the Spirit of Vincennes Rendezvous. 

Eric Scites of Faire Wynds first visited the Vincennes Rendezvous during the 1998 event. The shows always entertained both young and old with magic, sleight of hand and no one can forget the firebreathing. We were greatly saddened to hear of Eric's passing; our event will not be the same. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.
