How did our Family Reunion get started?
Glad you asked!
On the second Sunday in February in 1963, Uncle James and Aunt Marie decided to have dinner for “Ma” at their home in Phoenix City, Alabama. The next year, on that same Sunday, Uncle Willie and Aunt Emma had the dinner at their home in Columbus, Georgia. “Ma” requested that after her death the getting together of the family for dinner should continue. “Ma” died on October 28, 1964 and the tradition was continued and became a Reunion of the Family with the place alternating between Uncle James’ home and Uncle Willie’s home. February was a bad time of the year for the Family to get together for a Reunion. So, the Crawfords got together in February of 1974 and decided upon the second weekend in August as the official date for the Reunions. Thus, the first summer Reunion was held in Tallahassee, Florida and hosted by Fletcher and Trudy Battle.

Each person that I spoke too was well spoken. it was nice to know that our family is setting the tone as to how people should live and treat one another. I have always been proud to have been born into this family. And after meeting with all of you , I can stick my chest out a little farther. May each of you be blessed.
