Thanks for the encouragement. After the initial shock, I am happy and excited about meeting my extended family members. And you are right, it's a slow go trying to get familiar family members to pay up. My sister asked me what are we paying for, like the place we use is free, the basic food we provide is free, the printing and mailings, etc. The fee is $20.00. I paid for her last year and she has yet to reimburse me. Some of them show up and never pay a dime. We endure it because the most important thing to us is that they come! And yeah, the NJ branch will about double the gathering. We are thinking of having the "meet and greet" at the Golden Corral the evening before cause we can get a separate room and our budget will not allow us to rent a place and prepare food for them twice. What do you think? Is that tacky? Don't want to make a bad impression.
