An anniversary puts a pin on the calendar to remind us of something that matters to us. As we celebrate our 103rd Anniversary we will pause to recognize the significant milestones in our history and to take the time to reflect on our journey to the present. Throughout the year not only will we celebrate the milestones but we will recognize and acknowledge the members of our branch and our community that helped to make those milestones possible. Take advantage of the many activities and events taking place through out the community, through out the year.
Family reunions are important rituals that have long contributed to the survival, health, and endurance of African American families, helping to maintain cultural heritage even in uncertain and turbulent times.
The drive to discover and reinforce family connections has continued to guide the African American community through the tradition of family reunions. Family reunions can connect the next generation to their past. Family history is recounted, traditions are taught, and bonds are strengthened through shared memories. Family reunions help children form identities about who they are.
Family reunions are an African American summer tradition, often held in significant places.
