Invitation: 2003 English Family Reunion
For All Descendants of Sampson English
Saturday, 31 May 2003
11:00 a.m. Gather at English Family Cemetery in Macon County, Ga. for a short program, then browse about the cemetery. Bring flowers to place on graves if you will, plus bring a folding chair.
12:30 p.m. BBQ dinner at Ellaville, Ga. Senior Citizens Center. $ 7.00 per person, and pay at the door. Reservations must be made with James Gaston by Monday, May 26, 2003. A short business session will be held after dinner.
In case of inclement weather, the 11:00 a.m. gathering will be held at Red Hill Primitive Baptist Church (same place as 2002) about one half mile west of Oglethorpe on Ga. Hwy. 26.
About the Gathering

The Ellaville Senior Citizens Center (located next door to City Hall) was selected this year because it is more modern and the rental rate was better. Park along the adjacent streets. Bring your English family pictures, Bibles, and other family information. If possible, bring a card table to place them on. There will be one or 2 tables available. During the business session after dinner we will have information presented regarding forming an English Family Association. If there is enough interest, we will appoint a committee to pursue the matter.

At the 2002 Reunion (the first one in many years) 95 descendants attended from 6 states, so we are looking for a grand time this year. We are hoping that each one will have time to stay and visit after dinner so we can all learn who our relatives are. If you know of an English descendant (or in-law) that has passed away since 2002, please let James Gaston know so they may be remembered at the Cemetery gathering. Also, please send this information to other relatives that may not be on our mailing list.
