When To Start Planning The Next Family Reunion?

So I want to plan a gathering. I have this itch. An excruciatingly itchy itch I must scratch right here, right now. I want my event to materialize a few weeks from now. The problem? Not going to happen. If anything I'm just going to end up with a lot of scratch marks where my itch used to be.

Benn there. Done that.  And this is what I learned. The best event planning is done when you've given yourself enough time to really dig in and get into it. Sometimes you have to plan to start planning before you can actually start planning. Set a date with ample time to plan consider possible event details. Then rally the family and discuss the matter to narrow down the theme, itinerary and activities. 

When To Start Planning The Next Family Reunion?
When is the best time to start talking to the family members about the next family reunion? November 23rd to January 2nd. This is family time season. Everyone is in the frame of mind to focus on family activities. Discuss some of the ideas you and others have for a memorable family reunion. Consider possible dates for the event and pick up the discussion again sometime in December. Send out a survey in January detailing possible event locations, recommended activities and dates.  Make use of the Possible Locations form in Fimark's Family Reunion Planner Keepsake Guide as well as Themes and associated activities. The Event Timeline Reunion Planner will step you through the planning, organizing and management process.

Get it on and plan to start planning your best reunion ever this weekend. Visit and access the family reunion planning app with Fimark's Family Reunion Planner Keepsake Guidebook companion. Finally, everything you need to plan a memorable family reunion is at your fingertips.
