As was the case with previous reunions people can pick and choose what events they want to see. Since the reunion was in the same area in 2010 many family members might not want to visit the same cemeteries as we saw last time. This is perfectly fine. We want everybody to have a great time at this reunion There are many activities in the area to enjoy. There will be some activities, such as the banquet, that we will need a head count, but don’t feel like you are being pressured into attending any of them.
