Our biennial reunion is all set for the above dates, again at the Lake Barkley State Resort Park near Cadiz, KY. We plan to meet on Friday afternoon (or Saturday, if you can't make it on Friday). We have a meeting room reserved for Friday and all day Saturday which will be the focal point of all our activities.
We have 40 double bed rooms reserved as well as two cottages. The cottages have a living room and two bedrooms and hold 4 people. You are responsible for making your own room reservations directly with the Lodge. Their number is 1-800-325-1708 and make sure you identify yourself as attending the Menees Family Reunion. Room rates are single $66 and double $76 plus tax per night with 10% off if you are a senior citizen. The cottages are $147 per night plus tax. They require a one night deposit which can be done at the time of reservation with a credit card or you can send them a check. Your deposit will be returned if you have to cancel for any reason as long as it's done before April 17, 2002.
For those of you who may not be familiar with Lake Barkley State Resort Park, it's a beautiful facility in a rustic, woodsy area on the shores of Lake Barkley. They have all kinds of activities including swimming, boating, fishing, horseback riding, and canoeing. They also have an RV park, an exercise facility and an 18 hole golf course.
The dining room at the Lodge features a buffet for breakfast, lunch, and dinner or you can order from a menu. The prices are quite reasonable. For buffets they are $6.95, $7.95 and $11.95 for each of the three meals plus tax and gratuity. If we get a minimum of 50 attendees, the Lodge will set us up with our own private banquet in our own room on Saturday night. The cost will be $16 per person all inclusive, payable in advance. If we do not make that minimum (we had 32 people at our last one) we will refund your money at the reunion. We think we're going to get to that minimum as a number of new people have expressed interest. In order to defray expenses, we are also going to collect a $5 fee for each attendee. This is also payable in advance and you may send your checks along with the attached questionaire.
We have a full day planned for Saturday with presentations on Menees Family History. We ask that you bring along any Menees memorabilia that you may have in order to share with other family members. At our last reunion, we had a presentation on "Preserving Your Personal History". If anyone who attended two years ago did that, please bring it with you. If there are children attending, we will have programs for them as well. A complete agenda will be available to you when you check in. Any ideas you might have for the program, please include them when you return the questionnaire with your check.
