Saying Thanks For Good Times

Last month we gave recognition to individuals and groups who made significant contributions to the world at large with regard to freedom from slavery, lifting racial barriers and upholding freedom of religion. We awarded creators and designers of beautiful genealogy presentations.

This month we took the time to thank artists and entertainers and movie producers whose work help promote family values, social skills, good work ethics and community responsibility while providing unforgettable quality entertainment.  In this case we were taught these basic principles while being entertained in a very warm and personable way. Here are a few messages left on their Facebook pages.

Family Circus

Some say you are what you eat. Others say you are what you read.  We say we are what we celebrate most.  Thanks for sharing and celebrating every moment of family life with us. Because of you thousands are reminded to "Put Some Love In It." Family that is.

Reply: My Pleasure (and one "Like.")

Disney Pixar

We absolutely loved the movie "Finding Nemo". The very brief class exploration and score was touching. We would have liked to see more of the beauty and mystery of this undersea world from the eyes of the field trip director for another 5 or 10 minutes. A Nemo 2 field trip maybe? Only this time Nemo saves the oceans. Just a fascinated group of family reunion planners. Thanks for "Putting Some Love In It."

Charlie Brown's Peanuts

We grew up reading Charlie Brown books. Loved them. Could not get enough of them. The Sunday comics feature was just a teaser.  The books kept us reading and chuckling for hours. We were so inspired by the antics and thoughts of the Peanuts gang that our vocabulary improved exponentially, thanks to Linus proverbial input. With Schroeder's help some went on to develop a love of the arts. One past-time was drawing the characters, which led to an interest in cartooning.

Regarding family business and good work ethics, the lemonade stand helped. It led to another member pursuing a successful portraiture business. Snoopy was the dog we never had. Each character was and is an extension of the family and neighborhood.

Now's the time to wrap up ordering your family reunion t-shirts, completing party favors and acquiring supplies. To get a list of all that may be needed consult the Budget Estimator found in Fimark's Family Reunion Planner Social web app. See my profile for more information.
