This is an annual family reunion mixed with distribution of scholarships, certificates, gifts and prizes. Nieces, nephews, grandchildren, extended relatives and community children are recognized for graduations and achievements; most have surpassed where a lot of ancestors wanted to go. Some have graduated or are about to; others have acquired employment or are actively seeking employment.
