The Zion Reunion will be held Friday, Aug. 31-Sept. 1, at the Zion Community Building, with gospel singing. Mike Foster will be playing the piano and Don Johnson will help lead the singing. Mike and Don are direct decedents of the Zion area pioneers.
The singing will begin on Friday night at 7 p.m. There will be family stories and photographs on Friday night as well.
On the morning of Saturday, Sept. 1, if there are individuals who wish to visit various cemeteries in the area, they will have time to do this before potluck around noon. Story telling and photographs will continue until everyone has shared their family history.
Sue Chrisco will MC this event. "We urge everyone to write down any history that you might have about your family, whether it be folk lore or fact, to share during this event. So, start going through your old photos and get them ready to display and start jotting down those family stories to share," a spokesman said.
