MY NAME IS LYNN WAGNER (MY MOTHER WAS MARY MAY SAMPSON(NEE JEFFREY) - CHARLES AND EVA JEFFREYS' DAUGHTER AND MY FATHER WAS
JOSEPH F.X. SAMPSON.
I would like to take this opportunity to announce the 2001 JEFFREY/ERY FAMILY REUNION to be held in Louisdale, Richmond County, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia on AUGUST 10TH, 11TH AND 12TH, 2001. and to invite all our family decendants of Jean Jauffret of France, born in 1781 to attend our SECOND GRAND Jeffrey/ery Family Reunion.
Many family members still live in Louisdale - it was estimated in 1986 that there were 1,180 Jeffrey households in Canada. Our family has increased significantly in the last 15 years. Sadly, we have also lost many family members.
We hope this Reunion will be a great time for making new friends and renewing old acquaintances, children meeting cousins for the first time, people meeting family members they have not seen in at least 15 years.
Talk to anyone who attended in 1986 - the party was AWESOME. I have heard many funny stories in the past few days - of activites held at the last Reunion in 1986 - ask Arthur Jeffrey about playing horseshoes with Father McLeod.
We plan to have either a catered meal/or we will do our own catering with the help of family members. The meal will be held in the St. Louis Parish Hall on Saturday evening August 11,2001.
We will have real Cape Breton entertainment(please bring your guitars and be prepared to sing along), awards, an 80ft wide by 3 ft long Family Tree Photo Chart (please bring photos of your
children to add), family pictures(please bring your old family photos for our display) and we will top the evening off with a dance, music supplied by a disc-jockey. Bar services will be available.
We would like to get all attendees together for a family photo in front of St. Louis Parish Church before the family dinner.
We would also like to have a special Family mass at St. Louis Parish Church on SaturdayAugust 11, 2001( persons wishing to have deceased family members remembered at this mass - should contact
me prior to this event), possibly a golf tournament at DunDee - pre registration will be required (if there is enough interest), a horseshoe tournament and Children's games/activities such as relay races, sack races, three legged races, water balloon toss,etc. ideas would be great appreciated.
