Yates & sister Haley,
Thanks to the Newton LDS Ward Meetinghouse & Library - Vicki Bennett made everything they had accessible to us. Thank you for your hospitality and generosity!!
I'm sure I'm forgetting somebody that really should NOT be forgotten - If I am, please forgive me... I'm still recuperating! But it was worth it! I feel I've not only met many "lost cousins", but I've made some new and already cherished friendships!
As for donations received at the reunion (and by mail in the following days):
Amount Collected: $585.00
less reimbursement to J.B.J -65.00 for Pepperidge Farm Cookies
less pavilion rental: -25.00
Logan Canyon camping area - reserved for Dutch Oven dinner: -62.50
Memorial / Headstone Fund (reimbursement to Fay & Jeremy): - $432.50
The $62.50 will help reimburse Fay Michelony for the money she prepaid for the campground / pavilion area up Logan Canyon, where we had the dutch-oven cookout (I think she said it was about $125.00 and had collected about half of that... so $62.50 would come). She was going to let the site go if enough people didn't reserve in it - but at the deadline, I asked her to keep it so those who had reserved, weren't left at the last minute without a place to stay... so I told her we'd reimburse her for whatever she didn't collect.
Then the remainder went toward the Memorial / Headstone at the Newton cemetery.
It should also be noted that Lana, Fay, & Rosanna also donated food & supplies, stamps, envelopes, & print outs of fliers that were mailed to those who didn't have email addresses, and Jake (LaVon Jenkins) also donated the vinyl banners & posters. All of us have considered the expenses our donations.
We certainly want to thank everyone for their kindness & generosity.
It feels good to me, to have Fay & Jeremy reimbursed for most of the costs of the Memorial.
Love you all,
Rosanna (Jenkins) Hunter
