In Response To: Re: Newly Found Family Members ()
Thanks folks. I have canvassed a few of my NC and NJ relatives and they like the idea - so it's a go. Things are looking up: one of my neices volunteered to handle the activities for the children; some of the things she wants to do is a "Stewart" American Idol; essay contest, drawing contest for the younger ones, and one cousin want to buy a portable water slide (when I complained about the $200 price, she said she'd pay for it!)and have you ever seen grown 40+ women jump double dutch? It's a riot but that is one thing that at least three of our generations jump into every time the kids bring out the ropes. It's looking better as more family members volunteer cause Lord knows the 4 committee members are stressed. If it wasn't for email, fax and unlimited long distance, I don't know how we would do it since I am in NY and they are in NC and I do the programs, newsletters and some of the mailing and copying so that it does not all fall on our local coordinator.
Again, thanks for your suggestions, advice and encouragement -- and thanks a whole lot for listening.
