**PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD AMONG ALL AND LET'S MAKE THIS OUR BEST OF MANY REUNIONS TO COME**
With some creativity and ADVANCE planning, we can organize a memorable family reunion that EVERYONE will talk about for years. Who wouldn't want THAT, right? To do this, we need YOU! It's crucial to form a reunion committee and this means VOLUNTEERS. I urge involvement from ALL the family trees. In addition to my co-coordinator, I have 4 other volunteers for the committee (Stesha, Ava, Tanya and Candace). Rest assured a family our size, there's MUCH to be done, and we can use your skills. ((smiles))
Tentative Micro-Reunion Committees:
Social Events, Food Services/Catering (1 volunteer), Hospitality/Hosting, Kid Entertainment (1 volunteer), Photography, Health and Wellness, Music/DJ Station, T-shirts, Booklet/Program Creation and Printing, and Clean-Up/Set-up/Tear-down crew (this should be minor although still needed per the intent is the have the venue to provide the bulk of this). As you see, we have many areas in which your skill set can be used. Keep in mind, all though this is volunteering......it is a very important task and WILL require you to be well organized, TIMELY and most of all COMMITTED. Peace and blessings to all. Let me hear from you family (MEN and women) and let's get these micro-committees created and up and running.
