Reunion Vision - WHAT KIND
Reunions, like family members, come in all shapes and sizes. The first task of those planning a reunion is to decide what kind to have. Your first consideration is the family members themselves - their ages, agility, disabilities, where they live, their financial resources, and who is to be included.
Here is a list of ideas-lets talk it out - get specific-
Tell all of us (that do not live in Johnston Co) what do you have to offer relatives that have never been to Johnston County? What kind of reunion should we have?
small, medium, large, start small, simple, work up to a big one
several hours, several days, same weekend, every year, once every __ years,
return to the same spot, move around. , outdoor activity, camping/RV, sports on the water, the baseball diamond, join a tour (historical, sight-seeing, religious) take a riverboat cruise
interests are more intellectual, do genealogical research, restore the family cemetery or the old family home, look up family obituaries on microfilm
at an archaeological dig, interested in exploring our roots, go see the old family homestead, tour the hometown area, travel to the family homeland, a campout, tents and RVs around a central campfire, covered-wagon style, pan for gold,
ecology-minded, helping the environment in some way, restoring a trail, or a building,
country fair, family crafts, art, collections, including the work of the children,
classes during the event, relatives demonstrate crafts, clock making, pass on some skills,
in the local library to add to the family genealogical information, cook family favorites, evening campfires, listen to stories of the family's past.
stay at a guest ranch, go on a cattle drive, pan for gold, join a wagon train, experience the wilderness by rafting down a river, backpacking, or camping out, live in a Native American village
Let us know on rootsweb or
Join us on Yahoo chat June 22- 10am., 11am, 9pm. If we have any discussion we will post the transcripts on rootsweb and yahoo. Chat will remain open until 15 minutes after the hour or until all are ready to leave.
6/18/2001 from Annie: concerning chats
it would probably be good if you remind everyone that the transcript of the chat constitutes a public record of our meeting. People who join the chat should be prepared to give their proxy votes to someone who will attend the June 28th meeting. The ONS has not yet passed the legislation that allows corporations to meet on-line.
