Letter from the Board – October 1, 2018

Dear Cousins,

We have a wonderful opportunity this year to learn a little more about our wonderful ancestor, Joseph F. Smith.  This year marks One Hundred Years since he received the revelation which became D&C 138.  In addition, it has been One Hundred Years since he passed away.  Please join us for a program celebrating what a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and man he was.  He was very loving and kind, and he so enjoyed his posterity.

Don’t miss our annual Reunion & birthday celebration FHE:

Monday, November 12, 2018
At the Monument Park Stake Center (1320 East Wasatch Drive)
Registration begins at 6:30 PM
Program starts promptly at 7:00 PM

As always, we will honor our 8- and 12-year-old family members.  They will be singing “We’ll Bring the World His Truth,” so remember to practice if you can.  The children’s program for children ages 3-7 will be held in the Primary area of the building.  In addition, there will be a program for children ages 8-12, which will be held after the 8- and 12-year=olds have sung and been honored.  They will be dismissed from the general meeting.  Light refreshments will also be served following the program.

Please make plans to attend the Joseph Smith Sr. and Lucy Mack Smith Family Reunion in 2020. It will be held in Palmyra New York.  For questions, contact Steve Orton, steve.ortionio@gmail.com or Frances Orton, ortonfrances@gmail.com.

Please make a family donation so our reunion can continue to be an annual event.  To make the reunion happen we research family names and addresses and send out nearly 5000 invitations each year.  The money covers postage, refreshments, website domain renewal, sharing family history research, etc.  Suggested donation is $15-50 per household.  You can make your donation at the reunion or through the website http://josephfsmith.org/.  Thank you for your contributions!

We hope you will be active participants in carrying on the Smith Family legacy by attending the reunion, helping to keep our family connected, by reporting to data stewards, and perhaps volunteering to serve on a committee.

With love,

Andrea Patrick Black
2018 Reunion Committee Chairman
