Observance Tips

A great way to share in the observance is to look up award-winning documentaries on the subject. Make a point to watch one documentary a day. Another is to attend festivals, fairs and discussion groups that include presentations and activities based on the observance. Buy and read a book based on the observance. Watch a YouTube video featuring observance tips and ideas.

Annual Family Reunion Planning Month 
Introduced by Fimark Family Event Planners Group, Annual Family Reunion Planning Months is another November observance. Its objective is to encourage meaningful family interaction that empowers our children and gives them identity and greater support on the family level with a view to inspiring achievement and growth in all areas of life.  This month enables reunion planners to start planning the next family reunion well in advance.

"Generations pass like leaves fall from our family tree. 
Each season new life blossoms and grows benefiting from
the strength and experience of those who went before."

That's what family reunions are really about. Benefiting from the strength and experience of those who came before us.  This is the time of year to start your family reunion projects and bind family bonds closer than ever before.

Rallying The Family!

How can you get every family member involved? Start at home. Ask each household member for suggestions about fun, meaningful, and exciting family reunion activities.

The Fun Factor Test

Hold a trial run of suggested activities to test the fun factor. Start interviews and collect poems, recipes and amazing stories as told by each member of the family three or more generations deep.

Tribal Edutainment

Make a video family history documentary. Include photos, videos, heirlooms, music and stories unique to the tribe. Most of all, enjoy Family Reunion Planning Month.

Early Bird Head Start

The early bird gets the worm! If you want to have a memorable family reunion that folks will be talking about years to come, start planning now. Many planners make use of fall and winter observances and holidays to announce the event, rally the family, take and collect photos and video in preparation for the event.  That's why we selected November as annual Family Reunion Planning Month. Watch this video and get a head start planning your most memorable family reunion.
