After much discussion and careful consideration, we have decided to go forward with this year's 68th Annual McGraw Reunion as an in-person event (barring any unforeseen change in circumstances)! We are happy to be welcoming you back. We will be taking steps to ensure the safety of our family including encouraging social distancing, as much as possible, and by requiring all attendees to wear masks. We will be following the CDC suggestion of masks for children over the age of 2. We also ask that you wear your mask properly covering both your nose and mouth. As in a restaurant, you may remove your mask to eat, but if you are just sitting around the table talking, we ask that you put your mask back on. We want to try to keep our family safe and healthy so that our Reunion can continue for years to come. Please bear with us as we try to have as safe an event as possible.
We will be taking additional steps by providing pre-wrapped silverware packets and having individual cans and bottles for drinks. We will be sanitizing the tables and chairs and using plastic tablecloths instead of the usual cloth ones. Hand sanitizer will be available. When filling your plates masks must be worn and gloves will be provided for your use. We would ask that adults prepare plates for children and that children do not accompany their parent to the serving lines. We will be implementing additional safeguards as we go. If you have additional safety or health suggestions, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
While some people may not be understanding or supportive of the safety measures that we have put in place, we ask that you be considerate of family members that are in a higher risk group due to health issues or age. If you are unable or unwilling to wear a mask and/or follow the other safety measures, we look forward to seeing you in 2022. We hope by then that vaccinations will have made it possible for us to safely have our event without the extra safeguards. We feel that it is our obligation to the family as a whole to do the best we can to protect everyone while carrying on our family tradition.
We look forward to seeing you when the doors open at 11:00 AM on Sunday, July 18, 2021, at Southern WV Community College in Saulsville, WV. As usual, lunch will be served at 1:00 PM and we will have our Memorial Service and other programs beginning at 2:00 PM. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND SUPPORT!!!!
