We used white balloons to remember family members who have passed.
This year we decided to do a Family Photo CD, and sell it as a fundraiser
towards next year's reunion. We asked everyone to bring pictures of relatives, and scanned them on a memory stick, and are now in the process of making the CD.
We are also going to have a Bake Off at the reunion to see who is the best baker. It solves the problem of bringing goodies
to the reunion, and they will be nice and fresh.
My son came up with a Family Trivia game
, for those who aren't so athletic, or just don't want to get messy or sweaty.
All in all we plan to have a great time of family fun and remembrance
Last year we set off white balloons in remembrance of all those who have passed. It was really touching.
Hope these ideas help someone else, all I can think of is, think of what makes your family happy, and do it
. They are your family and will think the world of what ever you do, because you took the time to do it. Most of all, be respectful of family traditions, facts, and ancestry. That's important.
