Letter from the Board – 2019

Joseph F. Smith Family Reunion

Dear Cousins,

We have been blessed that Susan Easton Black has agreed to make a presentation this year for our reunion.  She has done presentations in the past for the Joseph Smith Sr. reunions.  I am sure that we will all learn something new from her this year. 

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

Monday, November 11, 2019
At the Monument Park Stake Center (1320 East Wasatch Drive)
Registration begins at 6:30 PM
Program starts promptly at 7:00PM

We will honor our 8- and 12-year-old family members as always.  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 2-7 will be held in the Primary area of the building.  Light refreshments will also be served following the program.

If you are not able to attend the reunion, check out the live stream from the association webpage on Facebook. It can be found by searching @jfsfamily. A link will also be provided on the website at http://josephfsmith.org.

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.  This will be a great opportunity to gather with family.  For information contact Steve Orton, steve.ortonio@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 over 2000 invitations each year.  The donations cover 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/donation.  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, reporting to data stewards, and perhaps volunteering to serve on a committee.

With love,

Edward Douglas Glade
2019 Reunion Committee Chairman
