$ Financial Report $
After finding our Organization in the hole, a plea went out in our June newsletter and again at the reunion for funds. We wish to thank everyone who has contributed to our funds. At the end of July our account amounted to $90.81.
I have put that amount into an interest-bearing account, so currently we have $91.50. (Of course, we will have a little less after I mail out this newsletter!)

1986 Reunion Remembered
July 26, 1986, dawned a beautiful, warm Southern California day. At 10 a.m., 34 adults and 32 kids descended upon Yorba Regional Park for the great 2nd annual Heaps Family Reunion.
Each one of the 66 people present made it a special occasion. We would also like to give a special thanks to several people. Erma and Rosalind organized the affair. Erma also provided many ceramic items she’d made as prizes for the games. Fred & Doris held a horseshoe tournament and they also organized a square dancing session for everyone. Buddy Maury provided equipment for a bowling game.
Several families participated by presenting skits, singing, and reading poetry.
Because there were ample cement slabs all around the tables, many of the kids roller skated their way into a frenzy during the day.
Thanks to all for making it a great day of friendshiping and feasting!
