Is Family Reunion A Thing of the Past?

I do know that some family reunions do exist, however, I do not see them as I saw them in or about 1970s through early 1990s. First I believe that those persons who began to put together family reunions are persons like the mothers and aunts age. Today, many of those mothers and aunts and older cousins have somewhat slowed the roll, and now these who are now about lets say between 30 and 40 seem to lack that certain something in putting a reunion together. This is not to say that they do not care, I am just saying that there comes a time that much work is put into it, that it goes beyond the back yard, or a tour, or gathering at a church. Yes, there have been some reunions on cruise ships, and when you deal with that these days it can become almost terrifying to the degree that you have to go through all of this security, that you do not have the money to go, and it is a possibility that up-in-age Aunt Polly just seem as though she cannot go. Am I kicking reunions to a side? Of course not. I am just observing some things I guess that has transpired in my own family, and letting everyone else know about it. Good luck to all of you who can do the reunions. Joseph
