Do you feel like your family reunions end too soon? Sure, you probably have to get back to your day job, but it will be easier to say goodbye when you know that you can return next year. Make your family reunion an annual tradition at Chandler’s Gardens.
Organizing your first family reunion is usually the hardest part. After that, many of the tasks become habits that you can check off with less effort. Plus, you can schedule your next date before people leave making it easier to coordinate your calendars before conflicts arise. You’ll also have most of the groundwork in place like putting together your guest list and selecting your venue. With the basics out of the way, you can focus on making any improvements and looking forward to the fun.
Share the Workload:
Multiple reunions give everyone a chance to contribute their talents and put their favorite activities on the schedule. By rotating the leadership roles, you make your reunions more of a family affair and avoid the risk of burnout when the same people need to do most of the work each year. You also give everyone a greater sense of engagement that can make your reunions even more meaningful.
Strengthen Your Connection:
Of course, the most important benefit of having an annual family reunion is the opportunity to spend more time with each other and deepen your connection. You build close relationships and make it more likely that your children will enjoy such roots too. While you can stay in touch online the rest of the year, nothing beats the experience of bringing multiple generations together in one place at the same time.
