STEVENS FAMILY REUNION
Once again it is getting close to the time of the Stevens Family
Reunion. I am getting excited at the possibility of seeing many friends and
relatives at this year’s annual gathering. We will meet again this year at the
Hammond Lions Club located at 45205 Morris Road on the second Saturday in
September, September 13, 2003. As those of you who were present last year will
recall, we invited the Calmes Family to our reunion since so many of our
Stevens Family are also related to the Calmes Family. By combining both families,
our attendance picked up quite a bit. We will extend this invitation again
this year and in the future this reunion will be called the Stevens/Calmes
Reunion. As in the past, registration will begin at 10:00 a. m. Come early and
stay as long as you wish. We encourage you to bring the children since there is
plenty room outside for fun and games.
We are again asking each attending person over 12 years of age to
pay $3.00 to defray the cost of renting the Lions Den and other incidentals
that may come up in preparations for this year’s reunion.
Bring a food dish and soft drinks of your choice (no alcoholic
Bring pictures, mementos, artifacts, etc. that may be of interest to those
attending. There will be a short business meeting, during which time recognition
will be given to the oldest person present, the youngest person present, the
original family with the most descendants present and the person(s) who have
traveled the farthest to attend.
A short memorial service will honor those of the family who have passed away
since our last reunion. If you know of someone who has passed away during the
year, please bring that information so they can be recognized. We would also
like to announce any new births in the family again this year.
IF YOU KNOW OF ANY OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS WHO MAY NOT RECEIVE THIS
NOTICE OR WHO HAVE NOT ATTENDED A PREVIOUS REUNION, PLEASE EXTEND AN
INVITATION TO THEM TO ATTEND THIS YEAR.
Looking forward to seeing you again this year and let’s try to
make this the largest and most successful reunion we have had.
