The warm summer months are coming, and it will soon be time for those wonderful family reunions. I just returned from Flint, Michigan, after speaking at the Flint Area Convention and Visitors Bureau’s 17th annual Reunion-Reunion show. More than 200 attendees and a wide range of vendors converged there for ideas and resources for their reunions. Flint is a great city with something for absolutely everyone, and their Convention and Visitors Bureau has a wonderful staff of planners who can provide you with contacts for all the resources you need to orchestrate the perfect reunion or meeting.
Many types of reunions draw people from all walks of life. These include family reunions, class reunions, church groups’ homecomings and reunions, veterans groups’ reunions, fraternities’ and sororities’ reunions, sports teams’ reunions, company retirees’ annual gatherings, and more. Anyone who has ever planned and coordinated a reunion event knows that it takes time and energy to plan and execute such a gathering.
Summer will be here before you know it, and it will be prime time for family reunions. Having planned reunions, meetings, conferences, and genealogy trips and cruises for many years, I’d like to share some tips for making your family reunion a success.
