Burning Question: Will There Be A Douglass Reunion This Year? OH YEAH!

Getting a lot of questions in the office on whether there will be a reunion of the Sons and Daughters of Douglass this year?

The answer is a resounding YES!

Although not called a "Reunion," essentially we will be having a "get-together" to be held on Friday July 5th, Saturday July 6th, and Sunday July 7th, because folks in Riverview want to see their friends and relatives out-of-town.

Friday's major festivities will feature the familiar "meet-and-greet" ... Saturday's main events are the Field Day in the afternoon, and the Ebony Club's Black-and-White event on Saturday night... and Sunday's main event will be the Sons and Daughters of Douglass Memorial Program right after church.

VERY IMPORTANT: There will also be a Douglass Alumni Business Meeting, to be held Saturday afternoon around 3 PM. That short meeting will last about an hour, and all alumni, including Ebony Club descendants, are asked to be present to nominate and vote for new Sons and Daughters Executive Board officers for 2014-2015.

A more detailed "Get Together" schedule will be forthcoming, next weekend.

Everyone who has paid annual dues will receive their membership cards during this meeting, and those who have not paid their dues can do, at this time and get their cards. Remember.... yearly membership dues in the Sons and Daughters Alumni Association is needed to balance the books of our non-profit organization, and pay one of the two bills we regularly have.

Please plan to come home to Kingsport and be with loved ones in the homeplace: our beloved Riverview neighborhood!
