My name is Jennifer Franks
and I am the Site manager of this site.
This site was created using MyHeritage.com. It is our way of staying in touch with family and allowing you to keep up on what were doing with the genealogy and upcoming events.
The 2009 Jenkins Reunion was held on July 18. We had 29 people attend the reunion this year. It was wonderful to see everyone that attended last year and great to meet family members that had not attended last year.
Those in attendance were: Herb and Betty Estel, Prentis Jenkins, Gary Jenkins, Bill Jenkins and Charlotte Mauller, Delbert and Brenda Jenkins, Barb and Fred Poling, Mary Ann and Allen Phillips, James "Bo" Jenkins, Donna Jenkins and David Poling, Frank Jenkins, Kevin and Patricia Jenkins, Greg Jenkins, James Jenkins Jr. and Cameron Lane, Tracy and Joel Park and Austin King and Jordan Landis, Todd, Jennifer, Schuyler, and Noah Franks.
The day started with a cookout and I would like to thank everyone for bringing dishes for the cookout. Also Thank You to Allen, Todd, and Joel for running the grills.
The Silent Auction was held to raise money for the website and the contributions to the auction were great, Thank You all. (next year we will try to make it a little simpler, live and learn I guess) We raised $59.00, $48 of which was used to upgrade the website and the other $11 was put into the reunion fund for next year.
The 50/50 Drawing was a great success also, it was split $44/$43 with the $44 going to the winner Frank Jenkins. Frank kindly donated the winnings back to the reunion. Thank You again Frank! So the total of $87.00 will be put toward next years reunion.
We held a drawing to give away four T-shirts. A special thank you to Tracy Park for Printing the T-shirts. The T-shirt winners were: Brenda Jenkins, Donna Jenkins, Cameron Lane and Gary Jenkins.
The Door Prize was guessing how many peanuts were in the jar. There were 324 Peanuts. The Kids Prize, a hand held Yahtzee game, was won by Cameron Lane with a guess of 321. The Adults prize, an Heirloom Scrapbook Kit, was won by Fred Poling with a guess of 340.
The reunion was a special day and I would like to thank everyone for being there. We are planning next years reunion for June 26, 2010. If anyone has any comments or suggestions on how to make the reunion better, or if you would like to add something to the agenda for the day please don't hesitate to let us know.
