Inspiring Reunion Planning Activities and Resources

It's Annual Family Reunion Planning Month. Time to start planning your 2023 reunion event. 
And with that comes the need for some good old fashion planning inspiration. 

No worries. When you plan a family reunion, the resources available online are literally endless. And that means, when it comes to finding great family reunion themes, venues and activity ideas, the sky's the limit.

But weeding through all the tools, resources, and websites can be a bit exasperating. This article should help you steer your ship to positivity.

A good place to start is focusing on what your family needs and wants most. Here are a few things to consider. 

1. Address recent loss; Include in your program words of encouragement and an "in memory of" segment. 

2. Inspire the next generation to take leadership; Include a passing on the heirloom program. Also an award ceremony as well as acknowledgments to those in the family who are busy at empowering the family to reach spiritual, educational, and economic goals.

3. Celebrating the past; Include family history activities such as storytelling and documentaries.

4. Recognizing Genealogy; Include a genealogy reveal activity that could include presenting family trees, DNA reports and related cultural festivities.

Once you determine the need, simply focus on specific activities that are need appropriate.  We put together a great resource to help you plan, organize and manage your reunion event.

Add a spritz of fun, and a splash of creativity. With a little resource inspiration, you're on your way to planning a meaningful and memorable family reunion event.
