On Saturday March 26th, 2010. We held another family reuion meeting in attendance were
Darnell Kimp, Dawn Kimp, Muhammed Rafee,Renita Rafee,Hakim Starky,Belinda Wilson,Arline Mills,Bashema Mills.Victoria Noble.
The first order of business was to decide whether the Mills family would be included in a cojoined family reunion. It was decided that the Mills family will hold thier own separate family reunion sometime in the near future.We will continue with our efforts to bring the Manire families together through events such as bowling parties ,fish fry beef and beer party etc. Manire and Mills decendants are welcome to attend any and all events.
There will be no dues but there will be a pay for participation for each event. This will help defray the cost of a big 3 day reunion in 2012. We have not figured out the complete logistics for 2012 yet but are putting out ideas such as meet and greet at a hotel ,cookout in a park, family church services, formal dinner with awards, a day at amusement park your suggestions are needed even if you cant make it to the meetings .
Muhammed Rafee and Hakim Starky have voluntered to do research on our family to help us discover our past. IF you would like to join this committe please contact them either thru this website or facebook.
Do you or another family memeber have a business or have skills that can help other family members. Please let us know and it will be posted on this site.WE need plumbers, mechanics, electricians,landscapers, artist/creative designers ,whatever you do you will be suprised at how in demand you are to your own family. Send me your business card or a link to your web site or any advertising you may have and we will help to get the word out.
