Well, June 12, 1999 is almost here, just five or six weeks away. All plans have been made for the reunion with some help from my Blount Co. TN Cousins. The time is from 11:00 AM until 4:00 PM at the Williamson Methodist Church. Here is where most of the Blount County Cryes, or at least the earliest ones have been buried. The fellowship hall and church are providing us with kitchen facilities and seats. Not knowing how many will attend however, bring a lawn chair for comfort sake and we can sit under the trees and get acquainted. Bring something to eat, sandwiches, chicken or snacks. We will share like a family homecoming. Drinks and paper products will be provided.
It would be invaluable for me to know how many to plan for. I will try to have enough ice and such to make our time comfortable, but I will need to know how many you will be bringing with you. Please e-mail or snail me no later than 1 June, 1999 with the following information so I will be able to provide adequately:
Your Street Address:
Your City, State, Zip
Number of Adults you will bring
Number of Children you will bring
Total number of persons you will bring.
