Family Reunion Forum
I'm on the planning committee for reunion to be held next year. I think our reunion is somewhat unusual and wonder if you all have any advice.
All of our reunion attendees are not related. There is a core group that Family 1 and Family 2 are both related to. I am a member of Family 1, the family that started the reunion. At some point, some members of Family 2 were invited. Over the years, other families related to Family 2 started coming. Now there seems to be some confusion over just whose reunion it is.
How can we make this a real group event? Is there anyway to make it clear who started the reunion without being offensive to Family 2? Some attendees don't even speak to people other than their own family members.
Has anyone else had to deal with this situation? Part of the challenge is the behavior of the other committee members and my feelings about them. Any ideas (and prayers) will be appreciated!
