Last year I sent out an email regarding fundraising ideas for this year and next.  We asked everyone if they came up with any ideas to please go online to the family website and complete the fundraising form. []

There were two forms completed online and the committee approval: 
Ethel _ Birthday month celebration 
Sharon _ Baked Goods.
  • The Birthday month celebration would involve all family members both young and old.  The cost would be $1.00 per letter of your birth month only.  For example: my birthday is in October so I would pay $7.00.   I can either pay it now or pay on my birthday month. If I don't have your birthday month, please forward to my attention. I will list all names, birth month and total owed and send out to the family.
  • Baked Goods - would be sold in her area.  
Spring is approaching and if you have any outdoor fundraising ideas that you would like to do to help raise money for the family, please complete the online form on the website. You may want to sell dinners or baked goods or whatever you enjoy doing etc. 

These funds are to help offset reunion cost and also to be able to provide a memorable experience for the family at our reunions.  We would also like to have a Scholarship Fund for our Young People.  

Some other fundraising ideas are:

  • This year to reduce the cost of the regular $5.00 raffle.
  • Prepare a Family Souvenir Journal to be available for our 2018 reunion.  I showed a sample copy at our 2016 reunion. 
If you have any questions, suggestions or concerns please let me know.  Please remember to go online at [] to complete your fundraising idea.
