Finally Posting Again!!

Hi all! I'm sorry it took me so long to get back on the blog. After the Godbehere Family Reunion I had finals and graduation from Glendale Community College to worry about and then I got a new full time job. I've been adjusting to my new schedule and getting the kids back to school. But I'm ready to look forward towards next year's reunion. I will be forming a committee to help me with the specifics and to make some of the decisions that need to be made. I am hoping for a meeting in Sept. If you live in the Phx area and would like to come please let me know. I've been reading the information sheets that were filled out at the reunion. They are very helpful and I really appreciate everyone's support at the last reunion. I know my grandmother was smiling down at our determination to continue on without her.

Some of the "getting to know you" papers were really cute, so I thought we would play a little game. I'll put some information from a couple of the surveys and you can all try to guess who the people are.

1. Female, Married, 4 children, 4 siblings, occupation: jackass farmer.

2. Male, married, 8 children, 2 siblings, Occupation: RN Something funny: "Thought I was done having kids, and here comes more!!"

3. Male, not married, kids?: "The world is not ready for little ________s", 2 siblings, occupation: network security engineer, Something funny: "Not at liberty to disclose as it is a condition of my parole agreement"

I'll let you chew on those for a while. I'll probably add some more next time I write. Thanks for being patient with me, and be sure to start thinking about coming to the reunion next year!
Thank you,
Nikki Wilson

Help Wanted!

Here's a quick picture of me, so you can put a face with the name.

The time of the reunion is quickly approaching. I want to thank Gina and her family for once again being willing to be in charge of the children's games. We will also be trying to put together a game for the adults to play as well, with prizes.

This year I would really like to focus on getting to know each other more. Would someone be willing to make up a questionaire that we can each fill out at the reunion, it will need to have email and phone numbers on it too? Also I need a comment box made with surveys asking questions like how often would you like the reunion, etc. I will need someone to sit with the guest book and get to know you papers, to make sure everyone fills one out. I need people willing to help with organizing the food. I need people willing to sell the raffle tickets as well. And as always...I need lots of people to contribute to the raffle. So far I only know of three items, we will definately need more. If you can help in any way, please call me, email, or leave a comment. Give me your email or contact info, so I can get ahold of you.

Thanks for all your letters and phone calls of support. They really mean alot to me, as I know they meant alot to my grandmother in the past.

Thank you,

Our very own Godbehere Book!

Three Generations ...
By Written & Compiled...
Hi all! I am so excited to announce that the Godbehere Family History book I told you about is all done and ready to be ordered!! My sister, Tiffany Hogg Pankau, is studying to be a genealogist and took a class on writing family histories. At grandma's (Jeanie's) encouragement, she wrote her course paper on three generations of the Godbeheres . Thanks to several family members, and lots of hard work, she made it into a beautiful book with lots of pictures and documents. You can click the link to preview the first 15 pages. You can then order either a softcover or hardcover book. I will be putting one of each into the raffle and then I plan on having two more to sell at the reunion. I will also allow people to order and pay for the book at the reunion and I will have it sent right to your home if you are not comfortable enough with the Internet to order one yourself. Be sure to leave a comment letting Tiffany know how we feel about all the hard work she put into this!! Thanks for all your continued support with the reunion!

Please Don't Be Mad at the New Girl!!

I have finally finished the newsletter for this year! I will be really surprised if I have all the information correct! I gathered what information I could, I still feel like people where probably left out. To avoid this for next time, I will need everyone's help. I will need email addresses and phone numbers so I can contact more people for the next newsletter. If you will be at the reunion we will have a place for you to fill out that information, if you won't be at the reunion, please email me at godbeherefamilyreunion@gmail.com with your name, current address, email address, and phone number. Please bear with me as I learn how to do this better. If you have any suggestions or ideas, please let me know. Also, if you know of someone who didn't get a family newsletter, but should have...please email or call me (my phone number is on the newsletter). There are some people on grandma's lists that she no longer has addresses for and I don't know who they belong to. So please help me make sure everyone you know got a letter. Thanks for all your help and support!

This Year's Reunion

I have been feeling really bad this week when I realized I put off reserving the ramadas for the reunion too long. I wasn't able to get any ramadas at the Rio Vista Park where we were last year. So this year we will be back at Sahuaro Ranch Park in Ramadas 3 & 4, the ones we normally use. It will be a Sat. this year as that is what they had available. So here's the info, though I will be sending the reunion letter out soon.

The Godbehere Family Reunion
Sat. Apr. 4, 2009 (Same weekend as Palm Sunday)
Sahuaro Ranch Park
Mark your calendars and pass the info on to the rest of the family!

Welcome to Our New Blog

Our new Godbehere Family Reunion Blog can used for many things:
1. Updates on the Family Reunion
2. Answer any questions about the reunion, or other family happenings
3. Family History information
4. Family Pictures
5. Family stories or memories

If anyone would like to post pictures, stories, etc. Email us at godbeherefamilyreunion@gmail.com and we can give you the sign in information. The blog isn't private so please be mindful of the information you give. I think this will be a great way to stay in touch with the whole family even those that can't always make the trip to the reunion.
Please let me know if you have any other thoughts or ideas for our new blog!
Nikki Wilson
