In my family, FamilyReunion is one word. It is a summer holiday unto itself. We have a weekend filled with parents, aunts/uncles, brothers/sisters, and tons and tons of cousins! We also have regional committees. I have so many memories. Here are a few, will you join in?
* Philly cousins and Virginia cousins dancing a joint routine at the Saturday banquet.
* Aunt Ruth dancing during our music through the decades segment even though dementia had set in.
* Men vs Boys basketball – starring Uncle Wali and Uncle Bob.
* Cousin Anise and family history moments
* Barbara singing on Sunday morning
* Taking all of the kids to see Meteor Man at the old theater in Staunton, VA
* Holiday Inn (the old kind with the outside doors, like a motel) and Hardee’s in Staunton
* Those little golf carts in GA
* The “after-reunion” Philly cookout the next Saturday at Aunt Joyce’s and running across the street to Aunt Lennie’s to get extra food (deviled eggs) from her kitchen
* Aunts maintaining such beauty and uncles who are still as cool as ever
* New generations who love FamilyReunion as much as we did when we were kids.
* Tannyhill street and those concrete steps!
* Friday night fish frys at someone’s house (Cousins Bernice & Joe? Cousins Jimmy & Patsye?)
These are just a scant few of mine. What are your memories?
A “shout out” to families, and especially mine: All of the RBPK aka “Robinsons” descended from Rev. Matt.
