Hello to all the Dore clan. I hope this letter finds you all in good health & spirit.
Spring in Saskatchewan has finally arrived after a long cold winter. The organizing
committee for the reunion met on April 15th , and here are a few items that came up that we
need you to know. If you are registering to attend the reunion and will be paying through
E-mail transfer please do so at firstname.lastname@example.org and please, to make it simpler
for Irene, keep the security question simple eg. What is happening on Aug. 3, 4, 5 and 6th?
As everyone knows Eva is the last remaining sibling of the sons and daughters of
Louis and Philimeme Dore, so we would like every one of her siblings families to bring an
item, pictures, books or something that we can include in a special Basket of Memories
that we wish to present to her at the reunion. We would also ask that an updated version of
each family tree be made so that they can be posted at the reunion grounds during that
We are looking for volunteers to head up a couple of the reunion activities. A
children’s activity director/s to organize some activities for kids 12 and under for 1 to 2
hours on Saturday probably late morning say 10 -12. There would be a budget allocated
for these activities according to the number of children that are registered to attend. We
also need an coordinator for our Chinese auction on Sunday. Some of the tasks would be
to except and list donated items, set up tables for the auction items and something to put
tickets in as well as coordinating ticket sales. This will run on Sunday afternoon.
There will be time on Sunday for families to go enjoy the regional park, the beach and the lake.
Between 1:00 and 5:00 on Sunday, if people wish to receive visitors, such old friends or
acquaintances, they may do so at this time.
The family photo is tentatively scheduled for 4:00 Saturday, please try to have you
family ready for this and in the family colors. We will have a photographer there to take
the group picture as well as individual family pictures.
