Hooray! We have a location!

I finally talked to the right person today and got our location booked! The reunion picnic will be Saturday, July 11 at Sunfish Pond. I will be sending directions when invitations go out. I will be going to Canton to visit mom for Mother's Day and plan to go up to Sunfish Pond and check it out. I don't think it is a huge pavilion, but we will work it out, whatever it is. I am so excited. I hope lots of family members are able to make it!!!

A few bumps in the road...

Not sure how this is all going to work out, the place I wanted to have the reunion doesn't have a pavilion available for that day, we could get one if we were going to do it Friday instead of Saturday, but I don't know if that will be difficult for people to work around with schedules. I can get a pavilion at another park, but it is further away. I'll keep investigating and hopefully will have something definite to report soon.

Planning and ideas

I have been thinking about what we should do for events for the reunion weekend. I would love it to be a couple day affair. Since we don't see each other very often, I hope we can have lots of time together. I hate when you get together with people and at athe end of the day you feel like you didn't get a chance to really talk to everyone. As soon as I have firm plans, I will post them here. I hope anyone reading this will pass the address on to others who I might not have contacted.

God Bless you all!

Save the date!

We have been talking about having a reunion for a while now. Here it finally is! We are planning a family reunion for the weekend of the Canton Fair in Canton, PA. The date for the reunion is July 10,11 & 12. Plans are just now underway, so the exact location and what all we will be doing is not fully decided. Since there aren't that many things to do in Canton, we decided that if we held it the same week that the fair is going on, we could hang out there part of the time. Ah, the memories, cotton candy, candy apples, the merry-mixer, the Farris wheel, the dime toss...or is it up to quarters by now!? BBQ chicken, ice cream and maybe even some Bingo! I am adding links for nearby hotels and B & B's. If you are reading this, please pass the information along to any other family members who might not know about it. We want to have as big a turnout as we can. Stay tuned for updates!
