The Reunion weekend was filled with great fun, laughter and fellowship.  We kicked off the reunion with a "Getting To Know You" icebreaker that carried on throughout the entire weekend.  Saturday night we were addressed by Pastor  Love with the message:  "Love Your Family."  You can't pick and choose who you want in your family, but you can be thankful that you have a family and choose to love them unconditionally.   The reunion came to a close on Sunday with a family breakfast.
