Plans for September 5 and 6 in Lehi

You will have noted my typing skills by now. Perhaps even my math skills: the great grandchildren numbered 191, and not the 91 I reported. I, like this reunion am a work in progress. And progress we have!

The following are scratches in pencil on paper, i.e. they can certainly be refined and improved for our general benefit.

Saturday 9:00 to 10:00 am
  • Set up a registration table to greet and identify participants. This will need 2 or 3 people to help write out names, hand out information and direct to various activities.
  • Set up displays of Kirkham family memorabilia, pioneer era activities for fun and insight. As many as possible- let me know what kind of space you need.
9:00 to 11:00
  • Make new and renew acquaintences with cousins, enjoy activities.
11:00 to 11:30
  • Formal greeting and introductions with background and purpose of this event.

11:30 to 12:30

  • Bring your own pic-nic lunch while listening to music, story telling, other entertainment.

12:30 to 2:30

  • Recounting of the family histories and updates of each of the four Kirkham brothers. 1 or 2 representatives of each family would be good. More would be great! Perhaps recognizing the eldest of the various lines etc.

2:30 to 4:00

  • Ice cream social with home made ice cream, rootbeer etc. We'll need several makers and volunteers.
  • More story telling, music, entertainment.

4:00 to 5:00

  • Information on Family Organizations, future reunions, tutorials on compiling histories, blogs and web-sites.

Sunday 11:00 to 1:00

  • Meet at Lehi City Cemetery for reflection and appreciation with some sort of presentation or program.

This is not cast in stone and I would enjoy your coments!
