We are down to 24 days before the reunion starts on the 25th of this month. We will miss the ones not coming this year and hope to see you all next year.

At this time, we have not made any plans for next years reunion. As everybody knows, this Covid-19 has stopped many of you from attending this year’s reunion. I think it may be a good idea (unless something special becomes available) to hold off planning another reunion until this Covid thing is done. It takes as much time to plan for a reunion attended by 175 as it does 73.

We understand why so many of you have decided not to attend. Your health and your family’s health must come first. We are all getting older and for many of us this also means our health is not so good.

This year’s reunion is a small one but that does not mean we will be cutting back on our activities. We will do everything as planned. We will have a good time and enjoy our Brothers and Sisters.

Carol will be paying for the meals either tomorrow or the next day. So, just in case you may be thinking of not attending, call us quickly or your meals my be paid for and you will not be able to get your money back.

Let us all pray that this Covid-19 thing will be gone or controlled soon so we can get back to full reunions.

God Bless,
