Family Reunion  Back to Events
 

In this day of busy schedules and computer communications, the experience of bringing together the young, old, near and far, all with one unique connection, is priceless. Whether your family gathering is an afternoon barbecue or a weeklong event, this is your opportunity to add a new chapter to your family's memory book.

To ensure best attendance, begin planning your family reunion well in advance. Use our planning guide to get started. Then work out a timeline to stay organized and on top of the details. Craft and send just the right invitation to add to the anticipation and excitement. A creative invitation can also help spur attendance. Who would want to miss out on something this fun?

Come up with an itinerary of activities and games that will appeal to all ages. Your goal should be to get everyone interacting with each other across generations. Be sure to make time just for reminiscing, hanging out and getting reacquainted. And keep the cameras rolling; after all, this is history in the making!

Gathering for meals will likely be the centerpiece of your event, so great food is essential. Meals can range from potluck casual to buffet to sit-down, depending on the size and style of your group. Remember that your neighborhood Publix can help with the planning and preparation so everyone stays energized and your reunion is a hit.
