In Response To: How is Planning Going? ()
I have the block of hotel rooms reserved. To make our reunion more affordable, instead of a formal banquet, we are going to have a less formal get acquainted event with a short program and light refreshements.
I have given a deposit to the caterer for our picnic. My niece reserved the picnic area.
Soon I'm going to request letters from our local public officials and see if I can locate the free goodie bags that the CVB is supposed to give out.
Well that's all I can do for now until the money starts coming in. But I am facing what is a common occurance with family reunions. People are slow to repond. I have only received a few responses. A lot of relatives have called and said that they are interested in coming but I'm waiting for them to put their money where their mouth is.
The money isn't due until mid June but I am going to send out reminders to those who haven't responded by June 1.
