For as long as I can remember the Sunday closest to July 4th has been the reunion. I thought all families got together once a year for a picnic. It wasn’t until much later that I understood how unique it was. For 42 years more than 200 family members gather for a family reunion. There is a meeting, adhering to parliamentary procedure, where the winners of some of the games are announced. Minutes form the last years meeting are read, the 50/50 ticket is drawn. New members names are read, some by birth and some by marriage, Maureen officially became an in-direct. Oldest and youngest members get a prize.
This year the weather was perfect. Warm, but not hot, no rain, I had a great time. Here are some photos:
