Hi Family...that means all readers. As we are one family under God.
This year for the Britt Family reunion..we are going back...way back!We're going old school! When I say old school, I mean in terms of family unity, family love, family fun. For the first time, we will initiate a Britt Family Mission Statement. We have elders and younger folks working on that. We will kick off with a old fashion fish fry with a fashion flashback ball. The funkiest outfit wins a prize. The kids will be dressed to represent someone in black history that's made an impact on our world today. They will go on a family scavenger hunt..trying to find out who did what by the end of the evening and win a prize for that too. The grown folks might kill me if I eliminated Bid & spades, so that ain't changing.
During the official picnic, we will have an old school vs nu skool challenge. Things like name that jam (or tune), sack races, black history, etc. The children will have there own Britt Olympics with the winner receiving a black leather glove to raise above his/her head to signify black power. We will close down the weekend with a Sunday brunch and recognition ceremony. We have researched one side of our family back to 1865. We have court transcripts, records of lynchings, marriage certificates, deeds and 3 more volumes of information for their viewing. These findings will make this family reunion historical. We'll have a blast and learn a lot.
