Thank you card

I made a Thank You card for my cousin, Merlene.


(Tam! I used some of the paper you shipped to me, thank you!)

Merlene hosted our annual Simon Family Reunion at Cottage Grove, OR in June. Was good seeing some of the family, oldest living relative (that  I know of) was there, my Uncle Vic, he’ll be 94 soon!

It rained most of the time, but everyone made the most of it.

Every year, fewer relatives attend. Hoping to be able to keep it going, we’ve been having them since the 1960’s. It used to be always held in Corning, CA, but in the 1990’s we decided to have it in Oregon sometimes, that way the ones that live not in California had less of a drive. (We’ve held it at  Anderson, CA – Lake Wallowa, OR – Westwood, CA – Grants Pass, OR a couple times – Lake Siskiyou,CA –  R-Ranch, CA).  Hope I’ve not forgotten any places. Each year we try to get a different family member to host the Reunion.

When our girls were growing up, every June for vacation we took them to the Reunion. I pray every year we continue to have the Reunion.

Next year my cousins, Ina and Brenda will be hosting the Reunion, they are planning it for July of 2010 at Lake Tahoe, CA. Hope many can make it next year.

      Thank you, just felt bad that it took me so long to get it made and mailed.
      I hope so too! Mona’s planning on coming out for it, they will probably fly in and out of Reno.
