2019 Foster Jackson Jones Family Reunion
Dear Foster Jackson Jones Family,
It is my pleasure to send you this wonderful letter detailing the information for our upcoming family reunion in Detroit, MI! We as a committee, team, and crew have worked diligently and hard to put together a reunion that is sure to be fun, exciting, and memorable. In the process of putting this event together we had a vision of a reunion that incorporated impressions of our past reunions, what we would refer to as “the good ole times”, one that debuted new ideas that would be used for family reunions to come, all whilst still maintaining our FJJ standards and obeying the established bylaws.
In this letter you will find details about hotels, activities, events, and other miscellaneous items as well as the official registration form. Though you have put your trust into the committee in planning this event for us, at the end of the day we still value all input, suggestions, concerns, and questions, so please feel free to reach out to the committee to have them addressed as we prepare for this weekend, this is one you will not forget!
Vincent Butler, Chair
FJJ committee Detroit, MI
