4rd 2011 Just wanted to update everyone on the Reunion.
facilities might be available for our group for the big family dinner and it was
an obvious choice so will proceed trying to put together a buffet menu as
reasonably as possible and still have it be special. The building is in
downtown Gatlinburg and stands alone and is charming and is reserved for groups
like ours. We have the building all to ourselves and one big room so we
can easily have a program. If anyone has anything special they would like
to say or do, please let us know.
also would like to have a "Talent Show" there. So if you can
sing, play music, poetry, have a special handcraft you would like to display or
awards, we would also like to know that. There is NOT any piano there but
there is a sound system with DVD access.
plan on having the dinner on MONDAY
evening at 5:00 p.m. so everyone can get settled in at their houses on Sunday.
Cost not determined yet
but around $25.00 per person.
