Our family reunion has contests, dances, door prizes, all sorts of things. And the potluck dinner is awesome. I gain a few pounds each reunion that I have to work off after. One of our family juggles, three are in various bands, one is a pretty good amateur magician, one has a puppet and does ventriloquism. The older members tell embarrassing stories on everyone.
But we’ve yet to need a fire extinguisher.
At our family reunions, firearms must be checked at the door. Maybe I’ll meet some girls,

That’s our job.
Gotta say, never been to a family reunion. Guess neither side is organized enough to want to hold one!
Been to two. Mom’s side - 628 attendees and I think I was introduced to each and every one of them. What a fun day for a 12 year old!
Dad’s side - Only a couple hundred showed up. The rest had to work the farms.
I don’t have enough family to reunite with - and the ones who are left are people I don’t want to see.
