Well, the time is approaching again. Itís time to get your reservations in for the 1999 Foster Family Reunion, the last such reunion in this millennium. We will meet at the same place we met before, North Texas Baptist Conference Center, Camp Copas. But due to a scheduling problem, we will meet on the first weekend of October instead of Labor Day weekend. The actual dates are October 1, 2, and 3. Some of us will arrive on Friday evening, thatíll be the 1st, and some folks will arrive Saturday the 2nd. Weíll break up Sunday after lunch.
This will be the 3rd reunion for the descendants of Dick and Dena Foster. We had 32 people attend in 1997 and 35 attend last year. I would like to see an increase this year too, since there is the significance of 1999 being the last year of the century, and see the reunion continue to grow bigger year by year. I know, I know, I know, the new century doesnít officially start until 2001, but it seems everyone wants to celebrate the new millennium a year early anyway.
We have reserved Angel Lodge again. This is a very nice air-conditioned motel. We have a meeting room where we can share stories, look at pictures, view slides, play dominoes, sing, or whatever. There is a Ping-Pong pavilion, volleyball court, gymnasium, and horseshoes. And you donít have to cook! We eat in the encampmentís cafeteria for breakfast Saturday and Sunday as well as lunch and supper on Saturday. For Fridayís supper and Sundayís lunch, what we have been doing is going into town to eat at Lubyís.
The cost is $28 per person per night ($11 for kids under 18). The meals are $5 for breakfast and $6 for lunch or supper (children ages 2 to 10 are $4). When you send in your check, please include a note saying which and how many meals youíre paying for. Please make all checks payable to David Foster and earmark them Foster Family reunion.
