July 11-18, 2015

This is the 30th year of our reunion. Thirty years ago, Paul and Evie had no children but a sweet little baby who they would name Rene' was in Evie's tummy that first year. This same Rene' has only missed one reunion and this year is here with husband, Austin, and their 3 month old baby, Hope Evelyn. Travis was a new baby the second year and has never missed a reunion. These are surely some kind of records. Spending this week with nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews and great-great nieces and nephews every year and sharing the changes in their lives has been such a family joy and blessing.

Two new members were added to the family. Kim married Grant in April and Hope was born in April.
