2013 Family Reunion

The 4th Bi-Annual Reunion was held in Columbia, SC.    The kick-off began with a Meet & Greet at the beautiful Embassy Suites.  As everyone arrived, a few of the committe members were there to greet you with smiles and Gift Bags filled with all kinds of goodies.

After everyone checked in, light hor’sdeuvers were served while more gathering and chattering took place.   

Later on that evening a few went to unwind at Hunter Gatherers for live Jazz Music.  We were happy when Skip Pearson (the Jazz Ambassador of S.C) took time to come greet and take pictures with some of the family members.

              

     

Day two the forecast wasn’t so friendly but it didn’t stop our day at Saluda Shoals Park.  We had lunch and played games

     

 

We even had time to learn to “Wobble”.

The rain didn’t stop the wonderful time we had at the reunion.

The James H. Banks Scholarship award was presented to this year’s recipient –  Ms. Nailah Banks – Congratulations to her!

Afterwards we took in the #1 Box Office movie  “The Butler”….

Day three was “Frankie’s Fun Park” and bowling competition of the Battle of the Sexes

All this fun and effort to keep the balls out of the gutter – worked up a healthy appetite so we headed to dinner at “Ruby Tuesday”

     

Then it was time to go party!   (or so we thought … chuckles)

Day Four was a Finale Cook-Out hosted in Charlotte,NC at Andre’s beautiful home..  Ahmad shared his experiece in Brazil

Doretta closed the ceremony quoting the family prayer.

With laughter like this – who had time to think of the rain

Nadiyah gave the grand finale performance of her drum solo
