MAESTAS REUNION REMINDER


Hello Everyone,

Just a quick reminder that the reunion is just around the corner. July 12, 13, 14 and 15 is less than 2 weeks away. Please let us know (if you haven't already) if you are coming. So far, we have about 80 family members who have confirmed that they will be coming. Lori is ready to set up the food buying at Russell's and we need to make sure we have the right amounts (not too much – not too little). Also, if there are any food allergies, etc. that we should know about, we will try to accommodate them if Russell's carries it.

Contact Ta at: Adelita Craig email Or just reply to this email or to the Webmaster.



REMEMBER YOUR SECRET PRIMO



Whether you will be there or not, please write down your news to share with everyone. Everyone in the family is interested in hearing about births, marriages, and all the other great things that happen

We've heard from some people who brought up an important point. Some family members have not been to a reunion in a l-o-o-o-o-ng time, and they may not remember how to get to the reunion site. I put together a rough map (compliments of Google) and drew in the dirt road to the reunion site but it isn't as accurate or detailed as it should be. You can find it at http://www.maestas-family.info/images/Tresritos.jpg. I also need to get some pictures of the turn-off from NM 518, from both directions, and post them on this site. That should make it a lot easier for long-lost family members to get there! If you live in the Mora area and have a digital camera, and you just want to take a ride for the fun of it, and you just happen to be around there, if you get some shots of the turn-off and send them to the Webmaster (address above), I'll make sure they get posted here.

If you are not coming to the reunion, you can also send an e-mail to the Webmaster (and pictures!!!) and I will get them posted. Heck, I don't care, send some stuff even if you ARE coming to the reunion! We expect to have a laptop computer, with the entire website content loaded on it, at the reunion, so everybody can share.



IF YOU WILL BE ATTENDING THE REUNION...



If you have not sent your RSVP yet, please do so. You can respond by e-mail to Adelita or the Webmaster, but any money issues, questions, etc go to Adelita.

Please bring 5 gallons of water per family. This is to make drinks; we expect to have a 50 gallon container of water as well.

Please bring cookies or a snack of some kind (a family pack) to share. Bring things you like to eat so we don't have left-overs.

Please bring 1 loaf of bread or a dozen tortilla to share. We will have buns for the hot dogs.

We will have chocolate, marshmallows & graham crackers for the camp fire eating.

The holiday we will be (re-)celebrating this year is Easter.

Please sign up for the work schedule as soon as possible so we know when you would like or are willing to cook or clean up or ??. The work schedule will be cooking, serving, cleaning up, and dish washing for every meal. We will also require people for gathering firewood, hauling water, and setting up and breaking down camp on Wednesday/Thursday and Sunday.

Here is the schedule of activities:



And here is the clean-up and cooking sign-up list. Remember that we need between 5 and 10 people per meal (depending on the menu for the meal), for both cooking and clean-up.
(An actual list just like this will be posted near the kitchen for you to sign up, but you can do so by e-mail right away.)
