2018 EVENT DATES: April 13th through April 15th, 2018

Organizers of the 2018 Clarke-Wright Family Reunion (C-WFR)

We, the Fort Lauderdale Hosting Committee Members, pray this information finds everyone in the best of health and spirit—keeping God first in everything we do, giving Him the honor, praises & thanks that He deserves. We hope that everyone is as excited as we are about the 2018 family reunion in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, also known as the “Hello Sunny” city.

The 2018 Clarke-Wright Family Reunion Committee is very pleased to announce the details of our upcoming reunion April 13th – April 15th, 2018. It has not gone unnoticed that our family continues to grow, and with that being said, this is our attempt to get everyone together, share our history, and create new memories. South Florida, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, and Palm Beach are the most sought after cities for fun in the sun. Therefore, although we will meet-up for a family reunion, make it an awesome vacation time for you and your family!!!!

We are honored to plan and host this family reunion and it is our hope that we don’t stop here, but to continue, so that every time we meet, it gets better and better. Our family includes the Clarke, Wright, Porter, Robinson, Walters, and more families we have come to know throughout our lives.

CLICK TO SEE MORE HOTEL CHOICES!

**Note, you are free to book a room at another hotel, but please remember, if your hotel is a drive from the activities, you will have to factor in a car rental & hotel daily parking fees or someone to take you from a family member home to the hotel each day. Also, if your hotel does not serve a hot breakfast cook to order, and you have to venture out for breakfast, please remember to factor that cost each day into your budget. The Host Committee believes that staying at the EMBASSY SUITES is a "better bang for your bucks" because it is centrally located to the beach, shops, and other attractions, that could be reached by a $1 Trolley that service the hotel area. Also, the EMBASSY Suites Tropical Atrium Space is super relaxing, spacious, and open so that you can sit and talk to family all day and all night. Staying at the hotel will give you access to food that will already be paid for, between the free breakfast each morning, evening cocktail reception with drinks/food, and the family reunion event foods.** Therefore, for many, there may be no need to rent a car or buy additional food. Just bring your yourself, family, and flip-flops.**
