Hello Family,

Let's plan our first Destee Family Reunion!

Meeting approximately a year from this time ... allowing us to make plans and preparations for this great event! Absolutely no plans have been made yet, only the seed planted in my mind, heart, soul and Spirit! So what do you think? When can we meet? What things should we consider?

Let's do this Family!

I'm so excited! :jumping:

:heart:

Great idea...it has been expressed become, but never materialized. I think the location would be essential in such an event actually taking place.

Yes Brother Pan ... it has been discussed a few times before, maybe it's time now? i agree also, that the location is very important. With so many of us being spread out across this country (and world), it may be good to meet in an easily accessible city, or one that is centrally located.

Sister Karmashines ... this will be a "Family Reunion" so the Family will decide how we do it ... so you're cruise suggestion is as worthy of consideration as any others we get ... thank you Sister!

i was thinking that we'd probably want it to be as affordable as possible ... we want this reunion to include as many children, with their parents, as possible ... we've all shared so much about ourselves and Family, it would be really kewl to come together as a Family. What's a Family Reunion without children?!!!

We've never done this before, met as a group, so i'm not sure what all is involved ... i'd want us to be able to take advantage of all the opportunities such a gathering affords us ... fun, history, networking, etc. ... i was talking to one of our Members about this, and he suggested staying in a Black owned hotel, using as many Black owned businesses as possible! He said that he believed there was a Black owned hotel in Florida ... i guess there's only one in the country? We can look into this.

Do we need a travel agent to handle all the particulars, get us better rates if possible? i do have a Sister, who is in this business, i will ask about all of this. She travels all over the world, and is currently in South Africa. She takes a group there at least 2 times a year!

Could we go to Africa?!!!! :eeek:

This is a very expensive trip ... at least it would be expensive for me! i guess it depends on how many folk are going, all that kinda stuff, but the trip she's currently on in Africa, cost aproximately $4,000 per person.

Wow ... how kewl is that Family!!!

Africa ... !!!! :love:

Let's keep the discussion going ... we will all decide together!

:heart:

I think this idea will have family turning out in large numbers because you know how black folk get when ever you say family reunion or cook out all they can think about is the free food and beverages lol.

The cost is going to be a big downside and drawback for many.

i agree Sister ... though we don't know what our actual price would be yet, as i believe it depends on the number of folk, days spent, all that kinda stuff ... but even with that, we can anticipate spending a big chunk of money.

i guess it's some wishful thinking on my part ... if not this time ... maybe another time! :)

i do want the cost to be affordable for everyone.

i'm witcha Sista!

For our 1st time out, I think $4000 a person is a little too step. I nominate NYC if only because it is 15 minutes away for me...LOL! Whatever you decide though, don't pick Alabama.

What exactly is your ideology?!
I'll be honest. I like black culture forums, so I've signed up for this one, BX, and Lipstick Alley. I won't post too often, only on things that I'm really interested in. Nice to meet you. :)
