LINDSAY FAMILY GATHERING 1999
A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the Lindsay Family Reunion 1999. I'm delighted you were able to make it and that the response to the idea of a family reunion was received so warmly. There comes a time in the evolution of every family when the normal needs of every day living move family members further and further apart. Once close relationships, indeed friendships, are kept alive only through chance gatherings at weddings, christenings and funerals.
Hopefully, today provided a rare opportunity to catch up on the events that have taken place in each other's lives over the past few years; to meet new members of the family not born last time we met; to greet new in-laws wise enough to fall in love with a Lindsay; to remember those we've lost; to rekindle old friendships and just have a great time--together.
The day would not have been possible without the help of a number of people: the hall was a gift of Stuart's husband Clint Prouse; the banner was a creation of Steven Crawford; Kathy Kosciejew helped out greatly on the day; the Lindsay Family Trees and Charts posted on the walls were created by Alan Appleby; the family portrait from 1898 on the cover of the Handout is the property of Betty (Bell) Schroeder and the photos were taken and developed by Jeff Kosciejew..
|The line-up begins to grow for dinner|
We hope you had a great time reading and updating the information on the Address and Family Tree sections of the Handout, completing the various lists on the walls and enjoyed posing (happily) for the family portrait. All his information was gathered together for a commemorative booklet
It was geat seeing everyone and I hope you all had fun!
