A Family Affair: How to Plan and Direct the Best Family Reunion Ever
By Sandra MacLean Clunies
"Whether planning a small annual get-together or a once-in-a-lifetime gathering of hundreds, A Family Affair is a step-by-step guide to the planning, promotion, execution and documentation of the best family reunion ever. Filled with hundreds of practical and specific instructions, A Family Affair carefully guides the reader through: The steps to set up a family reunion (establishing a purpose and budget, contacting relatives, planning the place and time). Making people aware of it (by snail mail, e-mail, and phone; dealing with grumpy uncles). Running the reunion (kids, food, events, and pictures). Following up with memories that participants will treasure (pictures, stories, and more). The book is arranged in logical step-by-step sequence. There are checklists and forms to simplify the paperwork, websites and other references for further information on topics of special interest, and tips from others who have held successful reunions."
