Events & Schedule
We are continuing to plan the family reunion based upon the success and suggestions of past reunions.
Group family pictures will be taken at an arranged time (schedule to come soon) to give families a few options to have everyone on hand. Try to arrange your photo for when you will have most of your family on site.
Doris & Penny will be reaching out to each family to find out what day works best for their family.
There will be a variety of family games scheduled throughout the weekend. Some for kids of all ages and adults! This will include scavenger hunts, competition games, crafts and activities, all with prizes for winners and participants to enjoy.
If you’d like to help organize some activities, let us know!
We would greatly appreciate any and all donations for the auction. Please bring them to the canteen on the reunion grounds by Saturday 12:00pm. We will be looking for volunteers to help sell tickets and setup the auction display.
Tickets will be available for sale on Saturday afternoon until Sunday 5:00 pm
Prize Draw – Sunday after Dinner (approx. 7:30 pm)
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Bring out your singers, dancers, musicians, comedians… whatever! Show us your talent! Sign-up will take place Saturday between 12 noon and 4:00 pm at the concession stand. Schedule will be posted just before the show begins.
8:30 pm – 10:00 pm
We are currently confirming the details to have a live band perform on Saturday evening. More details to come!
Fireworks will take place on Saturday night once it gets dark (approx. 10:30pm). If there is rain or high winds, it will be postponed to Sunday evening.
Celebration of Life
Sunday – 10:00 am
A celebration of life will take place at the Vassar Cemetery on Sunday morning at 10:00 am to honour those in our family that are no longer with us.
Family Group Photo
Sunday – 2:00 pm
Sunday is the day most families are on site, so we are arranging to have a drone camera take a photo of our whole family! Wear your coloured family shirts and stand together in one big group and show the world how big this family is!
Pot Luck Dinner
Sunday, 5:00 p.m.
Once again we will be having a delicious big bountiful potluck dinner on Sunday evening at 5:00 pm under the picnic shelter on the grounds.
The reunion committee will be providing pulled pork and meatballs for the main dish, along with buns, plates, cutlery etc. Feel free to bring your own plates and cutlery if you prefer (less plastic use please!).
Each family (and each generation of the larger families) are asked to bring a side dish. This could include vegetables, salads, pastas, rice, cabbage rolls, perogies, etc… and of course desserts! In previous years, the committee supplied potatoes, but we will not be doing that again this year so please consider bringing hot side dishes.
NOTE: Please bring a quantity that is representative of your family size (if you have a larger family bring a large dish or multiple dishes).
If we are expecting rain, the potluck dinner will be moved to the Vassar Hall.
