Re: When Family Members Don't Respond

BEEN THERE and Lord did I do some praying. 1st of all a family reunion consist of who will be there. It can be 2 families or just yours. Continue to be upbeat, send out those letters and ONLY plan for the ones who respond positively early. Stick to your deadline dates.Folks just don't want to give up money until the week of or when they walk in the door expecting a full course banquet for free. I also created prizes for those who sent money in 1st. Announced in each letter who the prize winner was. 2nd a prize for who answered the largest number of questions and sent response back in the mail. I know it is causing you some headackes. 3rd a prize for the first head of household who checked into the family group hotel. This way I found out who was paying attention. The time of checkin is on their receipt. If there are some children in the families who will be coming, get them involved and let them plan activities. I bought water guns and children and adults had fun wetting each other up. NO ONE WAS OFF LIMITS, except the very very old. Then we handed them water guns. Above all plan for those who pay. Don't worry about the rest. McDonald Hamburger restaurants have plenty of burger and fries if you know what I mean. GOOD LUCK.
