Re: Help change our reunion
In Response To: Help change our reunion ()
Many of these family reunions have gotten expensive. There has to be another way inwhich to make things okay. Some family reunions are usually right in the back yard, and for an entire weekend it covers certain things: ball playing, eating, and just sitting around. Once in a while there may be that part where there is a party at night at someone's house, but a lot of folks, even the elderly do not go into parties, not to say that they are against it, but they just do not. Also,some family reunions will on Sunday morning go to a church, then have the reunion dinner, and soon folks begin to hit the road and that is it. That does not sound expensive, and it is good to come together since that is what family reunions are about, however, there still needs to be more done...things that will occupy everyone from one to 101, something great that everyone will say "Very good". So I guess we will have to at least try to go into something at least once every two years, and hope and pray for all of the positive things to be with us.
In conclusion: Let's not just make our elderly sit around when they do not have to, let's give them some fun.
