A family reunion newsletter is a fabulous communication tool that can be used throughout all your reunion planning period. It isn't just a great tool for your planning, but it can develop into a quarterly publication to keep family closer, no matter how far apart.

If you, or someone else in the family, has Microsoft Word on a computer, just call up the design templates to see how easy it is to publish your own newsletter. It will keep your family informed of everything that is being done in the planning of your event. Be sure to incorporate your family reunion theme within your publication.

Just think about the interest that can be generated by sending out a publication that includes:

  • photos (old and new)
  • birthdays, especially milestone events
  • anniversaries
  • births
  • graduations
  • weddings
  • deaths
  • and don't forget to acknowledge those veterans in the family, both serving now and in the past
  • Also, include stories from some of the family elders, or achievements of the youngsters.


When your reunion has come and gone, be sure to send a wrap-up edition to your entire family list, include everything that happened, such as:

  • Photos of the reunion,
  • Stories of what happened at the event - both funny and poignant,
  • Announce prize winners
  • You may even ask individuals to write a note about the event that you can put into your publication
  • Thank all the individuals that helped make the event such a success
  • Don't forget to acknowledge the facility employees, if there were any involved. Send them a copy of your edition as well - not many people have done that.

By sending a family reunion newsletter to everyone, even those that did not attend, you may have more family members who will definitely want to be counted in for the next reunion.
