  1. As Uncle Albert said once "a bunch of Panthers gathering a around a pile of dead chickens" only this time it's a pig. Gates open at noon. Dinner of pulled pork sandwiches served at 4:00pm. BYOB

  2. The reunion was a success. It is estimated 175 people attended. It was not as hot as the previous reunion and not as cold as the one before that. It was a bit cooler than we'd have preferred and it rained off and on but not that hard. Every hour or so, people had to head for the tent if they didn't want to get wet but even if you stayed out, it wouldn't have been that bad. Games were played, and many good conversations were had. One second cousin requested advice on putting together a book on one of their family lines and a first cousin requested advice on a project they've been working on. I hope to discuss this project some time in the future once something is sorted out. It's a wonderful project and I hope I can be of assistance.
