Burke-Gallon 13th Family Reunion
"Celebrating Our Heritage and Building Our Future"
Dear Family Members,
The Orlando Steering Committee is excited to host the Burke-Gallon 13th Family Reunion.
As our theme implies, "Celebrating Our Heritage and Building Our Future," let us continue to remember our past, celebrate our present, and generate our future. Our reunion is a grand celebration where we reconnect our family. We especially want our younger generations to connect to the profoundly rich heritage from which they have come. All of the activities will provide a unique experience that you will not soon forget.
The reunion will be held on June 13th - 16th, 2019. We have worked diligently in preparing an exciting agenda of activities throughout the weekend. We hope you will join us in the "Sunshine State" of Florida on the "World's Most Famous Beach" in Daytona Beach, Florida for our "Hawaiian Luau."
We look forward to seeing you in the very near future. Our reunion packets were mailed out in June of last year. Please contact us if you have family members who did not receive reunion packets or do not have access to receive our reunion information via website, email, and/or postal service.
Since our last reunion, we as a familly, have had some incredible moments to share. We will take time to relish in all of the triumphs and treasure all the memories.
We are looking forward to seeing each and every one of you! You don't want to miss it.
