Hello Family,

Welcome to the newest addition to the WHEW Website!  This is called
a BLOG which is basically an online journal or web log.  We can use
it to post the lastest family news.  A special place has been added for
our Young WHEW Family Members to discuss the activities they want to 
see included in our reunion.  We can also use it to provide comments
on the family reunion planning process and just to share information.  
Feel free to use  it!

Hello WHEW Youth!
 
I just wanted to drop you a line to say how impressed we all are with your wish to start a Youth Group for the WHEW Family Reunion.  As promised,  I am sending this e-mail to get things rolling about activities for the 2009 WHEW Reunion.  The next reunion will take place June 25 -28, 2009  in Atlanta,  GA.
 
Here are some of things you talked about at our brief meeting:
 
*Create a section of our family website dedicated just to the young people.
 
*Design and coordinate activities for young people according to age groups.
  Listed below are your suggestions for the 2009 Reunion:
 
Pajama Party
Amusement Park (Six Flags in Atlanta, GA)
Coca Cola Factory Tour
Aquarium
Water Park
Movies
Stone Mountain
Games - Girls vs. Boys
Kid's Night
 
Two adult family members have volunteered to serve as chaperones and to provide assistance- -
They are LaShunda Blanding Smith and Tonya Ahmed.
 
This information will be passed on to the Reunion Committee and they will be in touch with you by e-mail about the planned activities.
 
We encourage you to chat among yourselves and keep discussing the types of activities you would like to schedule.  A good place to start would be to research the different items listed above and figure out which ones you want to do first. 
 
I have created a  WHEW Youth Blog (an online journal) where you can write in your comments.  Just click on the "add new comments" and type away!  I will review the comments and then post them to the website.

Good luck with your task and remember  we love all of you "youngins"

Margo Jackson

I am very glad that I attended the Las Vegas NV reunion in 2014. Thanks goes to cousin Stephanie and Tonya for the hotel and events scheduled. WE will have an even better reunion in 2015 in Wash., DC and our very own Moses Whitlow will spearhead this event. I hope we will have more participation. Stay strong family and speak what you seek.

Hi family last year I spoke w/ Moses on very late-night activity for adults such as Bingo! I have acquired the machine, reference board, & playing cards. If anyone has some input please add to this suggestion. The games could build funds for scholarships and seed money for next year!  2018 could be a start to implementing events of proposed camaraderie to enhance family fun. So, what do you think!
