NINE WEEKS to go!




May 25, 2012:
Yes, in just 9 weeks we will be gathering in Westlock, Alberta for our reunion!

It's great hearing about who is joining us and I'm looking forward to seeing family that I don't see very often and of course it's will be good to put faces to some of these new voices and names ... it is going to be a great weekend!

*** I just wanted to point out a couple of things about the blog.
Ya! We now have a "translation" button – so when you are commenting you don't have to worry about it being in French or English, it can be translated to almost any language.

*** It is possible to post on the blog, but you need to email your post to our email address guindon.yandeau.family.reunion@gmail.com and we will get your post on the blog. Sorry for the hassle, but some of our planning commity are very concerned about internet security and this is the compromise. But don't let this deter you, we still need you posts as well as your comments.
*** We are adding links to attractions you may be interested in as you travel to or from the reunion.

Remember we need to know numbers to finish the planning.

Thank you if you are one of the families who have sent in your registration!

Please let us know if you are not able to join us, a no is still better than a question mark!

Are you a maybe? Send an email or leave a comment, we would still like to hear from you so we know you are aware of the reunion.  

Hope to see you all there!

Three Month Til Our Reunion



Hi Everyone!

It feels like spring is finally here! The crocuses are blooming in the sand hills and the snow is almost gone. The farmers have begun to work the fields and the calves, lambs, kids and foals are arriving!

We will have a group picture and the different generations and groups of cousins. Marcy's will also be doing family photos – Mom and Dad, children and the family group.
  7. Genealogy Library & Photos will be set up to learn more about what programs our families are using and what is out there to make family history easier. Plus a place to bring family photos that you may need more information on – who is it and/or where are they. The Inn has a great wireless system, so bring your laptop with your family history. We will also have computers set up to share the programs we are using.
  8. Are you bring something to contribute to the silent auction, if so, please let us know who you are and what you are donating. Email or call: JennyLynn at cowgirlchick_57@hotmail.com or Doreen at 1.780.467.2251 or Faye at feboychuk@yahoo.com
I love how Laverne put this in her newsletter “ ...We are all volunteers in a labor of love, donating time, money, knowledge, and part of our sanity to make a weekend in July an enjoyable and enriching occasion ...”
Our reunion goal is to create a pleasant and informative weekend, where we can meet many Guindon connections, sort out relationships, appreciate our roots, renew acquaintances at a minimal but realistic cost.”


I have just emailed this to one of our translators, so the French translation will be posted soon.
