Down Home in Arkansas: a Family Reunion Story
As winter turns to spring and spring to summer, brings with it the change in season and the family reunion tradition. Families all over the world come together for some as much as once a year to reunite, socialize, strengthen family ties and relationships, and learn about family history.
Such is the tradition with the writer’s family. Maria Hoskins recalls how fun, exciting and entertaining her family is during the bi-annual family reunion holiday. Maria hopes each reader will enjoy her family reunion story and draw on the commonality readers will experience as they associate their family reunion with the writer’s family reunion story. The family reunion activities will be an added plus for the entire family!
