Keeping it Interesting

This year let’s have a table of “Show and Tell” for those who have a special talent in arts, crafts, sewing, collectibles, etc. Bring samples to show and share your accomplishments with all of us.

Here’s a fun, “perpetual” idea for all to get involved in. A “Heaps Family Book of Favorite Recipes and Handy Hints”. Bring favorite recipes and/or household hints to the reunion; include it’s origin and a brief story if appropriate. Also, bring your clever ideas for a cover design. We’ll chose one at the reunion. Rhonda Cowan will compile everything on computer. Copies will be mailed out along with the next newsletter. Each year we’ll add to it, as a family documentary for future generations.

Any changes of address or notes of special interest for the newsletter, please drop a post card to the family secretary.

The balance in our Family Reunion Fund is $406.25 as of 4/26/93. Details will be made available at the reunion.
