Who would have thought that we would still be hosting family reunions ten or so years later---another generation, or two, as we continue to gather as a family unit. If you get to feeling like you're only one--take a look at the family unit and you realize that you are just one of many! We gathered in Evergreen, Conecuh County, AL at the Bolden-Cardwell Hall of the Evergreen First United Methodist Church. It's a wonderful place that we use every Wednesday evening for church suppers, and for special events. The family enjoyed the first reunion held there and so we held the last one there, as this was the year of Uncle Mel's 100th Birthday! Wow! We held this reunion in May and many of us gathered again in late August in Mobile at Dauphin Way to honor him on his birthday! What fun! At the reunion, we had many 'first-timers' to attend, plus as mentioned earlier, we had the missionaries from the LDS Church to come and share with us how to put our family information in their family website program! Learned a lot! Had fun! Got copies of our very first family cookbook! Oh my! Love my Beasley Family! Mama, I thought of you and knew you'd be smiling down on us! Daddy would say, my goodness, look at those Beasleys eat!
