Our “2018” Reunion is dedicated to our senior generations. Much of the family’s
history exists only in the memories of each family members. If these memories are
not preserved in some way, they are lost forever as people pass away. So we plan
to honor each generation thru videography capturing and preserving our family
history orally. “Keeping Family Stories Alive.” So, we are collecting facts-names-
dates-places of anything you want to pass along. Therefore, I am enclosing a list
of topic ideas that can be discuss and recorded at the reunion, or if you have
someone at home that cannot attend reunion; but would like to send in some oral
history. Please feel free to video them (2 minute limits) on any of the questions,
subjects or whatever they want to speak about. Send to my email at
pheonian@gmail.com or mailing address. They will be compiled all together into a
pre-recorded video to be played at the Banquet on Saturday. We will also be
taking Family pictures & videos at all events-“Meet & Greet” –Picnic - Banquet to
be added and shared with family.
There will also be a memory table for those that have gone home to glory. So, if
you like; bring a picture, so we can reminisce of all the good times and funny
things they used to say or do.

NOW, get ready cause we’re going to have Minute Games – Rely Races – and
Prizes at the picnic on Saturday; and There will be lots of Family, Plenty of Food,
and Tons of Fun all the right ingredients needed for the “Best Memories.”
