Dear Family Members:

Every three years mark the time that the Thompson’s and Ashley’s gather their kin to commune, worship, laugh, cry, reflect, and perhaps even tell a few Thompson-Ashley tall-tales. We are the recipients for a long and rich legacy. Flowing in our blood are the deep elements of spirituality, courage, creativity, and servant-leadership (the highest kind of leadership that emulates our Father’s service on earth). We are forever reminded by our forefathers to strive to walk in the most upright footsteps of all – – those of Jesus – – as we make IMPACTS in our schools, our vocations, our businesses, our interpersonal relationships, and our services to mankind.

Our theme this year is “Life’s An Expedition”. It reminds us just what has been established in each of us as descendants of those who found their greatest strength when they were on their knees LOOKING UP for guidance and answers to daily life, daily challenges, and even events that were unforeseen. It was by looking up that they could MOVE FORWARD…and so can we today.

We have enjoyed coordinating your weekend (along with a wonderful Steering Committee) to ensure that family and friends will make many fond memories this reunion – – memories that will linger on our minds, overflow in your scrapbooks and computer files, and rest in your hearts for years to come. Be sure to talk to each other during the reunion on deeper levels about our theme. We encourage you to add at least 20 new relatives to your list of contacts to stay in touch with after this reunion. Please be sure to welcome and embrace warmly our new family reunion attendees and our close friends who chose to celebrate our heritage with us this year. So let the 2017 Family Reunion Begin….

 

With sincere family love,
