Archive for the ‘Family Reunion’ Category
This winter was one for the records books for nasty little flu ‘bugs’ going around! But whenever I found myself down and out, I logged onto the digital newspaper site at KSHS.org and began typing in family surnames as keywords!
Below is just one of the many fun little family tidbits that I found:
Wellington Daily News
21 May 1913
Pg 1, Col. 2
The home of Ralph Stocking, 612 North F, is the scene of a happy party being a family reunion. The guests are Mr. and Mrs. Roderick Stocking, Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Stocking and children, Mr. and Mrs. Porter Stocking and son, John Stocking all of Mayfield, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hitchcock, of Chicago.

Summer is reunion time for many families, and ours is no exception!
This is our year to get together, and I’m really looking forward to it! After hunting down a cool place to gather, one with plenty of things for both old and young to do, (my mom insisted the place have a tornado shelter!!) the next thing to do is send out “Save the Date” invitations!
While playing with my Heritage Maker’s website (affiliate link at http://www.turnmemoriesintobooks.com/) to personalize our own invitations, I made several to choose from, and I’m posting one of those here.
The Camp Horizon campground is a real campground in Kansas, (and is not pictured above) but the contacts, and family and reunion information posted here is fictional, not fact!
I substituted made-up names for our own names & info, so if you show up to attend our Jones Family Reunon on July 4th, just be warned — we won’t be there!
If you would like to use this template to make a “Save the Date” invitation like this one,check out my website at www.TurnMemoriesIntoBooks! There are numerous templates to choose from in the template gallery, just do a search on Invitations or Save the Date. If you sign up for a Premium or Club HM membership I will gladly share the one shown above with those who sign up!
I plan to post some invitations using the Basic Membership art work soon!
