The gathering of Cooper kin is planned for May 7 at the city park in downtown Melbourne. Activities at the park for all ages will include games, volleyball, horseshoes and basketball.
Registration will begin at 10 a.m. A short business meeting will be held before a potluck lunch at noon. There will be prizes for the youngest, the most elderly, the one who traveled the greatest distance and the longest married couple.
Family pictures and items of interest will be shared.
There will be a craft table this year (auction or presale) for items handcrafted, fashioned, made, grown or preserved to help with expenses. There will be an update on the DNA testing for the Cooper lineage. There are 10 matches so far.
