Re: Hard Times
In Response To: Hard Times ()

I am planning a family reunion for August and to keep cost down, it was suggested that we do a one day only event consisting of a picnic instead of the traditional 3 day event that we used to do which consisted of a banquet, picnic, and church service.

However, it still presents a dilemma because if I go with a one day, picnic only event, I will alienate my out of town guest and only the local guest will attend. But if I go with the three day event, people may complain that it is too expensive.

I have already had a cousin tell me "I'm not traveling 1400 miles for a one day event". I'm trying to keep the family reunion affordable, yet make it worthwhile for the out of town guest to attend. Can you suggest any other inexpensive events in lieu of a banquet that family members can participate in and let me know if it worked at your family reunion?
