Wow! Has it really been two years since Pam and her committee did a splendid job spearheading our last reunion in 2015? Believe it or not, as relative as people say time is, it certainly plays a major part in regulating our lives and giving it definition and meaning.
Well, with that said, it's time to bring the family together again, from far and wide, to reconnect, to meet for the very first time (in most cases), to laugh, to play, to pray, and most importantly, to solidify bonds that were forged more than a century ago. And, like the mighty oak tree that is used to symbolize the connectedness, the growth of a family, branch to branch, generation to generation, we are resolute in our efforts every two years to build on the unity and love that unites us all. So yes, let's celebrate our 20 year anniversary of faithfully preserving our legacy.
The Tampa Planning Group is pleased to announce we will be celebrating the 20th family reunion anniversary Friday-Sunday, July 14-16, 2017, at the appropriately named Reunion Resort (reunionresort.com) in one of the most family-friendly places on the planet, Orlando, Florida.
We will use this website and Facebook to communicate not only reunion events, but events and accomplishments of family members. So, check in often as this will be our primary method for getting information and submitting requests as we plan what we hope will be a spectatular event for the whole family to enjoy.
This website, as well as our Facebook Group page, "Owens Family Connection" will be updated with anouncements throughout the upcoming year. For family members who are not online, we will be sending a reunion package via snail-mail with all reunion information so that they too can participate. If you're able to register a family member that does not have access to this website, that would be enormously helpful. Registration can also be done over the phone. Please contact a committee member for assistance.
Familiarize yourself with the website by visiting the pages on the left. All pages have pertinent information that will guide you in making a decision to attend. The Hotel Information page is of particular importance. Once you open the page, you must click on the image to enlarge it. There are no hyperlinks on the enlarged image. To view hotel floor plans and amenities you must go to the hotel's website. The link for the hotel is listed on various pages throughout the website, however.
Please complete "My Profile" and "RSVP" sections to let us know whether you and your family plan to attend. Also, please feel free to send us suggestions on making the reunion an event to remember. Simply click on the "Contact Us" page to send us a message.
We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you soon!
Very best regards,
The Tampa Planning Group
