Everyone on the mailing list should receive a hard copy R.E. Canada Family Reunion letter this week. Please read it and start making plans and taking the steps needed to get to next year’s reunion.
I wanted to get something out in hard copy to get things started and to announce the Raymond E. Canada family reunion blog. You can go to www.recanada.org or www.recanada.info and these domains will forward you to the blog.
If those don’t work, try this one: http://recanadafamilyreunion.blogspot.com/2016/09/welcome.html
They all lead to the same place. Please read the letter and get on top of all of the logistics, planning, and budgeting that you need to do to get there—but for the moment, start putting your memories together and emailing them to me.
These may be memories of Raymond Canada, funny stories, or just fond experiences that need to be shared.
They can be reunion experiences that you want to share and for which the statute of limitations has expired.
Also, send pictures of Raymond so that I can post them on the site as well. Please get them into a .jpg format and send them electronically. Give me as much detail as you can to go with the photo post.
Here is the great thing about the blog format. We can add to the story as we go. Check out what is already posted. If you have more to add to that story, use the comments. If you have more than will go in the comments section, write a story and email it to me in Word or as plain text in an email--something that I can copy and paste.
One final note: NO BLOGJACKING. Add as much relevant information as you want to articles and pictures but let’s not go down rabbit trails that don’t relate. We can hijack all the Facebooks posts we want but let’s keep this blog full of good memories…and we better remember them now while we still can.
