Family Reunions and Annual Meetings

Summer is a frequent occasion for annual family shareholder meetings coupled with family reunions. Some fun activities we've seen at such occasions include the following:


  • A family trivia contest exploring the origin of family nicknames, dates of important family events, terms of abstract legal arrangements, etc.
  • A family olympics of sports such as frisbee accuracy, ping pong, egg toss, etc.
  • Family "roast" banquet, teasing each person for something they did during the year.
  • Acknowledging achievements of each person during the year (new job, personal accomplishment, milestone anniversary, etc.).
  • Skits by different groups reenacting funny or significant family events.
  • Photo picture boards from each family branch illustrating the year's activities.
  • Treasure hunts or scavenger hunts using family history or personages as clues.
