A summertime tradition
There are numerous activities that say summer to me and probably to you too. Warm weather, sunshine, golfing, swimming, vacations, etc. are all part of my summer. Another activity that says summer to me and many other people is a family reunion.
Due to my husband, I participate in a family reunion held by the Richmond branch of his family. The Richmond Family Reunion is held every year on the first Sunday in August. There is never a question about the date, it is always held the same Sunday every year. My dad’s family tried having family reunions, but they were not that good at it. The Richmond family — they have it down — they are professional at having family reunions.
This family runs its reunions like a well-oiled machine. The family elects a president and secretary each year, sometimes retaining those who served the previous year. These are not just “figurehead” positions. The president conducts the family meeting and consults with the secretary throughout the year. The secretary sends out invitations to the reunion, just to make sure that no one is confused about the date, and the secretary records the happenings at the yearly reunion and prepares minutes. Those minutes have been retained for more than 50 years, giving the group a written archives of family events. Such an amazing history for the future of this family.
