Submitted by, The Committee

~A meeting of the family body was held at Pipestem State Park in June of 1985. At this meeting it was decided by the family body to form a committee to plan the reunion functions each year; and, that it would be held in a central location where all members that wished could meet and plan that year's activities. It was decided that Columbus, Ohio would now be the chosen location, and it would be held at a site near the Columbus airport for travel convenience.

The original location was in Pittsburg, Pa. Then it moved to Hagerstown, Md. The committee was elected by the family body and given full range in its' decision making powers. It was also voted that the reunion fund would pay the expenses of these committee members, but the committee, realizing that the fund could not bear this expense, chose to pay their own way. The reunion fund only pays for the family dinner for the committee members in attendance, and this has been happening for the past 20 years, and the members still attend bearing their own expenses. An unexplainable relation & fellowship has developed over the years by all the members of the committee who represent all segments of the family bond; they have an agenda of dedication to see that the Henry & Minne Davis Reunion survives.

Currently the meeting will be held the last Saturday in March or either the 1st or second Saturday in April.. It is an open meeting and any family member is welcome to attend, and we pray to God that you will.

Thought for Life

Broken Relationships;  God Said, “ If you are out of fellowship with a brother or sister, don’t come to me in prayer or bring offerings until you have mended the broken relationship (Matt. 5:23-24)  Whenever there is a broken or “killed “ relationship you can be sure God is not involved, some one else is triggering the destruct mechanism.   We should use the Family Reunion to mend some Broken Relationships in our Families.

Again Wishing you all a SAFE Trip To The Reunion
