Re: Losing Attendance
In Response To: Re: Losing Attendance ()
Thanks alot Mel for the encouragement!!! I really want to get away from the home reunions. The only family that really attends are the older generations in and out of state and the younger generation that live in the city. Other young people outside the state rarely attend.
Either way it’s going to be in Florida. I live in Jacksonville, which is only 2 hours from Orlando. I want the family to turn the reunion into their summer vacation. My dad is retired military so we’re getting rooms at deep discount and we can get tickets for the family at discount also. Now I just have to figure out how to market it as the BEST option.
Another issue is, changing the date of the reunion. We’ve always had our reunion the last weekend in August. Apparently, my great grandmother told them to never change the date, so they never did. But, most children start school during that time and a lot of family members are teachers. No one wants to take time off just as school started to go to the reunion for the same ole. I plan on changing the date to 2 weeks earlier so it will hopefully correspond with everyone still being on summer break.
