Dear Family & Friends,
Regretfully, I have decided that the 25th Reunion will be my last one, and in hopes that someone else will step up to take over this wonderful annual event. I have 13 years under my belt of organizing the reunion and it is truly time for me to step down and let some else revive and renew, and put some new blood into this wonderful family event. On June 24, I will have all ready to transfer: the red checked tablecloths, centerpieces, supplies, banner and all email and snail mail addresses to a new coordinator. So, I hope you will communicate with each other before June 24 about who will take over. (Note: no snail mails will go out this year, so also communicate with those you know who do not have Internet access about this year’s information.)
Let me say to all of you that I treasure these years getting to know my Lampley cousins, and with many of you, created bonds that will last me a lifetime. My grandmother, Farrie Lampley Cox (granddaughter of Radford Tucker and Sarah Oliphant Lampley) would be proud, and it is in her memory that I volunteered years ago. So, at the time of the 2018 reunion, I will simply show up, sign in, stick on my nametag, put my casserole on the table…and then sit down with you all…and finally get to chat and catch up!
P.S. Thanks to all who have worked hard to help me out in so many ways for all these years.
*For those of you who don’t know, my best helper, husband John Allen, passed away unexpectedly on October 10, 2016. He toted boxes, moved chairs and tables and garbage, and considered himself an Honorary Lampley.
