TIME IS GETTING SHORT!

If you don’t believe in ghosts,
you’ve never been to a family reunion.
[Ashleigh Brilliant]

Six weeks from yesterday (Friday, August 3) will be the beginning of our Misegades Family Reunion!  Things are falling into place.  As you can see our beautiful family crest has been recreated thanks to the hard work of Katherine Misegades. There will be more about the crest at the reunion.  Right now we are running up against some deadlines

HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS:

If you are planning on staying at the Sheraton you need to get your reservations in by August 15 to receive the $109 price.  Follow this link Misegades Family Reunion and push the green button “BOOK NOW” and you will receive the discount.  You can call the hotel to make reservations just be sure to say you are with the Misegades Family Reunion. Remember, those coming in by plane you don’t need a car the hotel has a shuttle and there are plenty of “homegrown” cars available for the week-end.

T-SHIRTS:

Beverly Smith (Katherine Misegades’ daughter-in-law) is taking care of this for us.  To receive the discount we need to send our order to her with what type and size of shirt we want along with a check or money order. That way we may have them on the Friday we get there.  I am not going to put James and Beverly’s address here but will send it in the e-mail I send after posting. She needs this as soon as possible. It might be a good idea for groups mail together, say my brothers and families tell me and I send in the order.  Just remember to pay the person sending in the order. Sooner or later we will have a graphic of how the shirt will look, but you probably should order before we get it.

Since some people like crew neck and some like v-neck we are offering both types in light blue.  Beverly stated in her e-mail that since the crew and v-necks will be ordered from different companies there will be a slight difference in the color.

The crew neck style for sizes small-XL will be $4.50.  XXL $5.50 XXXL $6.50.

The v-neck style would be sizes small-xl $5.98 and size xxl $6.98 not available in size 3xl.

Toddler tee sizes 2T, 3T, and 4T $4.86. Youth Tee sizes xs-xl is $4.05. onesies 6 mo, 12 mo, 18 mo, 24mo $4.44

Even if you are not coming to the reunion this would be a nice remembrance.  Also, there may be some who do not want a t-shirt, but do want the Misegades Crest.  Plans are in the making to have copies of the Crest at the reunion.

FAMILY PICTURES:

Oh boy, I’m guilty of this, not collecting and scanning old pictures and documents and sending them to Katherine katherine@atimetoknit.com  in high resolution (for an album we hope to put together (and on ancestry.com) Please, look through your pictures and clippings and send them to Katherine.  The more memories we have the better.

A LITTLE FINANCING:  Kent has fronted all expenses for the hotel meeting rooms and lunch.  The cost comes to approximately $40/per person.  He’d appreciate your donations at the event to offset these costs. Remember, the main dinner at the Waldron you pay for yourself.  Again the website for the Waldron is http://www.waldhorn.us/.  They have their Dinner Menu listed so you can get an idea of how much you bill will be.  By the way, we will have a speaker talking about our family that evening.

Attractions: For those In-laws that may get tired of hearing all about our family don’t forget about our link Charlotte, NC travel site, and other links on our WordPress Blog.

NAME TAG COLORS:  Ed, Green; Gene, Red; Harold, Blue and Roy, Yellow. Oh, yes, if you don’t belong to any  of these Purple (I think).

Please, let us know once again if you are coming.  I have a count and I would like to verify it. Also if you are going to be a the Lunch gathering.  (12:30-2:00 p.m.).  Full agenda is coming later.

That’s all for now, remember to look for the  e-mail with James and Beverly’s address.
