Dear Family Member,
It is with great hope that this letter finds you and your family in exceeding happy and in great health. After several lengthy discussions with other family members, we have come to the conclusion that it’s time for us to come together as a family. Therefore, on August the 10th, 11th and 12th of 2012 we will host the McLeod Family Reunion. The reunion will be held in Fayetteville, North Carolina at the Holiday Inn Bordeaux, 1707 Owen Drive, Fayetteville, North Carolina, 28304
We really desire the support of you and your family’s participation in this grand coming together. We will reunite the family and pass on our rich family tradition to our children. Our family has always been very close; therefore it is essential that we take the steps now to reaffirm our commitment to what makes us who we are: family.
We are planning several events and social times together to aid us in getting acquainted with some and reacquainted with others. What an exciting time it is for the McLeod family. As one of the organizers of this event, I’m bubbling over with joy, excitement, and gratitude for the tremendous responses that have been received already.
Enclosed with this letter is a breakdown of all the cost for the reunion. These costs include the family reunion dues, the family banquet, and the reunion T-shirt. Individuals will have responsibility for calling the hotel and making arrangements for his/her hotel stay.
