Theme is "The Greatest Generation of Floyd, Franklin and Patrick
Counties, VA".

Wear red, white, blue if you wish:

Rena will do a demonstration of Divining for Graves at the picnic for those interested.

We will have 3 tables of genealogy related books, prints, postcards and
maps of great interest to us about our ancestors that settled in the area.

Linda Stanley will be bringing the genealogy books, maps, postcards from Franklin County.

Carolyn Hale Bruce will put together a booklet of stories and pictures.
This will be one of your favors to take home.

Ken Brown will take pictures of all going on at the picnic and will
post the pictures after the picnic. Or Barb will post them on our website.

Wes Poff will use my digital camera and picture printer to take
pictures of all of you who want the pictures and will print them right
there.

Ann Bailey will be bringing genealogy related books about Floyd County
and those from the Museum in Newbern.

We will have some "bluegrass music" played by Temple and Daniel
Garrison.

Speaker will be  Effie King Brown, a past President of the Floyd County Historical Society.

Our Meal Prayer will be given by the Reverend James Underwood from
Roanoke.

I am making a banner for EACH meal table. The only reason I mention
this is because I want ALL of you to sign and date the banner with the
colored pen provided and we will save these from year to year.

There will be several drawings for PRIZES!!

Irene will be bringing some of the Hezekiah Sumner Books. Also, she wondered if there are those who would like copies of books by Marguerite Tise. She only prints these on demand, but would be happy to have copies printed for any who want one and bring them to the picnic.
Please contact Irene privately at:
irenenkent@earthlink.net

Marie Spangler and her hand-made porcelain dolls dressed in period clothes.
