I'll attend the next Reunion . . .

 but I don't have the time.

Besides, nothings really happened in the past two years . . .    

. . . or has it ???


  • We've cried tears of sorrow for those we've lost, and tears of joy for the newborn.

  • We've hiked the Appalachian Trial for two weeks, and explored Asia for a month.

  • We've run as a collegiate athlete, and played volleyball as an Olympian.

  • We've helped revitalize a city's downtown, and renovated our own homes.

  • We've gotten engaged, and shared wedding vows.

  • We've graduated from high school & college, and begun study for graduate degrees.

  • We've celebrated 20+...30+...40+...50+...and 60+ year anniversaries.

  • We've moved to apartments in the city, and left empty nest in the suburbs.

  • We've begun new careers, and retired from the rat race.

  • We've searched for new wines in California, and undiscovered artist in Cuba. 

  • We've bought new homes, and prepared others to sell .

  • We've been honored by Ebony Magazine as a Master Teacher and much more . . .

Hmmmmmm . . .   Perhaps a lot has happened during the past two years

which needs to be celebrated and shared!

 We can't wait to welcome you all back to Chicago,

and the 2016 Roots Family Reunion!
