Family Reunions..,

Has anyone ever planned or help plan a family reunion?? Tips and ideas would be great. I'm going to go browse Pinterest here in a bit for some ideas.

My dads side of the family hasn't been a big part in my life since he passed away 20 years ago. It's a whole bunch of he said she said stuff that went on between my dads side and my mom. But it's been 20 years. It seems we have all put our past behind us and now we are starting to form a relationship with that side. I don't remember much of anything that went on as I was only 4 years old when my father passed. I have a very child like view of what went on and still to this day don't care and just want to move on and learn more about my family.

We do one once a year with my grandpas family. It's a potluck style at a local park. Hope that helps.

Sounds like a terrific idea,
I do know they need to be planned well ahead of time.
Deciding the where/when  is the hardest.
Good luck & let us know how it goes ;)

No, having a reunion in my family would never happen. A family reunion on my moms side, would turn into me being put in jail.lol.We grew up around my dads side so there's no need for one..But good luck!
