Friday evening meet & greet
A fantastic time was had by all at the 2014 San Diego Reunion! Our Friday evening meet and greet was on the patio of a cafe at the resort. Everyone seemed to enjoy the food, drink, and games. The young assistants to our gracius hostess were wonderful at getting family members to buy raffle tickets for some pretty great prizes! Everyine stayed pretty late playing pool, video games, or just sitting outside enjoying the weather and company.
Saturday was open for families to tour the beautiful city. There was so much to do and see, but everyone had to get back to the resort by the evening for the family dinner. We had a large room opening up to the pool, which could be viewed through the wrap around glass doors. During our Italian dinner buffet (the canolies for dessert were amazing), the family was able to view photos of past reunions thanks to the contribution by Rosemary McDaniel as well as photos of many in the family. Family members that had passed since the last reunion were honored in the memorial service and Joann led us in song. Results from the business meeting:
