|MANIRE FAMILY LEGACY||
Hi, My Name is Darnell Kimp for those who don't know me.I have been working with my brother Terry(Muhammed Raffe) and sister Tangy and cousins to bring togehther the Manire family for a all out ,bang up fun filled weekend reunion.As most of you know my Mom Priscilla is the last living child of George and Erlene Manire.While talking with her she expressed that she would love to see all the descendants of her brothers and sister gather together and get to know each other.
Over the last few month"s while talking to cousins there was always talk of putting together such a reunion.Sheldon lives in Las Vegas and let me know his desire for a 3 day event in 2012. This would give us plenty of time to plan and finance such an event. I thought great , here's a guy 2000 miles away making phone calls and putting the word out, what can I do to get the ball rolling.
One night while playing around in facebook I found I could put a group together and invite people to join.The response was overwhelming we had over 115 members by the end of the week. I figured that was a good start.There are many others who do not use facebook for whatever reason so I asked around and found out that Belinda had already started a page for the family and this is pretty much the framework she set up.I think it looks pretty good. With your help we can make it even better. I will be the admin for this site and am so far responsible for it's content. Please forgive me for any errors in advance.
So far we have had 2 meetings and have had some things worked out. But we need more people to attend. In the near future we will need to elect officers and others to perform some of the duties to make this a success. This week I am checking out bolwing alleys and trying to put together a bowling party so we can raise funds to help us get things going .This year I would like to do things to bring the families together and get to know each other before the big 2012 reunion. The bowling party will be coming in May and we are looking into doing a Fish fry or Beef N Beer in the near future.
