July 12-15, 2012
Did you know that in 2006, 40 million Americans moved? We are a nation in transit. Few people live in the communities in which they grew up, and for many families, seeing grandparents may be an annual event, rather than sharing dinner together every Sunday. We’re lucky these days if we even know our first cousins, let alone stay in touch. Impermanence and fragmentation pervade our culture, and a sense of rootlessness is replacing an awareness of identity and community.
Yep, that's you -- aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins once, twice or thrice-removed... We're all family, and it's time to think ahead to our next fun-filled opportunity to celebrate our shared heritage and wonderful relationships across the miles and generations.
As this summer begins winding down, it's not too early to start planning for next year's vacation. which you can center around another fun reunion in the Black Hills.
WHEN: July 12-15, 2012

We had such a great time at our last reunion in 2009, especially with a whole new generation of parents and kids 'moving up the line'! Even if you haven't been to a reunion since you yourself were a little kid, or you're not sure what it will be like, trust us -- come, you will have a blast.
