142nd Cater/Decatur Family Reunion
Bruce Emery Woods
4 Bruce Wood Road
Buxton, Maine

August 18-20, 2017

It's hard to believe another year has gone by and it's time once again to start planning for a weekend with family at the reunion. Last year was our first year at our new reunion location at President Larry Emery's house. The camp ground took a lot of work and was worth it. It has proven to be a wonderful location for families to gather, camp and share stories as well as spend time together. We are often so busy with daily activities and barely notice the passage of time. This is one weekend that is worth taking the step away from everyday activities and enjoying time with family. It's a time when cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents get to come and reconnect or to make new family connections.

This year we are having a beach weekend. There will be beached theme games and crafts for the kids. This year should be as much fun as each weekend in the past, so mark your calendars and start your planning. On Friday night we will be having a campfire to welcome everyone. We will not be serving dinner on Friday night so please plan accordingly. There will be a grill available if you wish to cook.

On Saturday, there is plenty of time to swim, lounge by the pool, and visit with our cousins and friends. There are also plenty of lawn games. The area also provides fun attractions for all ages. The beaches are nearby as well as a petty zoo, shopping, antiquing and yard sales. On Saturday evening the officers will be supplying and serving dinner. This years offering is a BBQ chicken dinner with sides and dessert. In keeping with the beach theme we are also offering a traditional lobster bake at a cost of $10 per person and will include lobster and clams. The chicken dinner will be at no cost. If you plan on joining us for dinner on Saturday night please text or leave a message at 978-944-3075 or send an email to or with a subject line of reunion and let us know how many chicken and how many lobster dinners will be needed. Money for the lobster dinner will be collected upon arrival. The officers will be serving both dinners. There will be a campfire for all to enjoy after sundown and the Bingo game will be held as it is always a fun time and includes prizes.

On Sunday, the day of the reunion, we will begin with coffee and pastry supplied by the reunion. This will be followed by the anticipated sawdust coin hunt which the kids love. The annual meeting will follow so as to conduct old and new business. We are always looking for ideas to make each year a better year than the one before, so come and let your voice be heard. After the meeting there will be a pot luck lunch. Please bring your favorite dish to share. As always, upon completion of lunch, the event everyone looks forward to will take place... the penny sale and raffle. Please bring any items you would like to place on the tables.

The campground has restrooms including a shower and a pool so don't forget your swim suits as well as lawn chairs. There is a large covered area out of the sun as well as a sunny area for lawn games or just sitting and chatting. There are many shaded areas throughout in order to cool off and watch the younger ones play.

The campground has spaces for tents, trailers and motor homes. You may pull in any time on Friday. If you would like to arrive earlier in the week please call to set up a time for your arrival. To make reservations for the weekend please call or text Larry Emery at 207-939-2286. There is a $30 charge for the weekend for each family to alleviate the cost of water and electricity. For those of you needing electricity please bring the appropriate electrical cord.

For those planning on bringing the family pet we ask that you abide by the following rules:

Provide proof of rabies vaccination, only one dog per site unless prior permission is obtained from Larry, pets much be on leash at all times or runs that don't exceed your site and cleaning up after your pet is your responsibility.

There is plenty of time to plan for the reunion and we look forward to seeing each and every one of you!
