Maestas Reunion 2015
April 2015

Hello Familia,

Hope you had a wonderful two years. We look forward to seeing everyone July 9, 10, 11 & 12, 2015. We plan to meet at Los Alamitos if the weather permits. Please share the family's website with any family members who don't already have it. We will use that and Facebook to keep people updated.

The decision last reunion was to not increase the fees except for a flat $5.00 fee per category below for cemetery upkeep.

If you can, please send in your fee prior to the reunion. We also need the number of people who are attending so that food etc. can be ordered accurately. That will help us with costs. Please send your checks to Adelita.

Ashely Sherrod graciously offered to be in charge of the kitchen this reunion. She will be our go-to person for kitchen set up, food buying, etc. We are again asking family in the valley to please cook the Thursday night meal. This means that we are asking you to bring food with you and come on and eat at the reunion. Because Joan has been sick this might be something that her granddaughter Ashely will also do as her "kitchen duty".

We plan to have a reunion cake and a cake to honor all graduates from the last two years. Please let us know the names of ALL graduates and who will be at the reunion.

We will again hold a memorial for family members who have died since the last reunion. In the past we have had a "tree" with ornaments that honored people in the family who have died. It has been suggested we have a picture board or an album for family to view. Please bring a picture to put up on our memorial board.

We are again asking family members who can not attend to send a letter, pictures, or whatever they would like to share with the rest of the family. Please send it to Adelita Craig 606 S. 5th street Raton, New Mexico 87740 or email to Adelita.

If you have craft items that can be used for childrens' games please bring them. Let Adrienne and Marissa know so they have an idea what we need to purchase. We also need items for the bingo games. So bring items that can be used for prizes. We have also had raffles and need items for that event.

Bring your picture albums or whatever you have from past reunions so we can share. Maybe we can set up a game of "do you remember who this is" or "what year this reunion happened" or something similar. We will have a scanner available to copy pictures or documents that you would like to share.

Secret Pal will start up again if people are interested. Bianca Esposito is willing to coordinate it and monitor. So think about it. She is willing to send reminders for those of us who forget to send notes, etc.

If you can get to New Mexico early and help with getting things ready or stay after the reunion to clean up and put away things please let us know. Thank you to all who volunteer to make our reunion a good time for everyone.

Adelita Craig 606 S. 5th Street, Raton, NM 87740 is where you can send your fees. If you have questions please contact any of the committee members: Daryl; Barbara; Paul, Larry, Dan; Antonio;
