The 2019 John and Hannah Knight Libby Carter Family Reunion

August 2-3, 2019 Family Reunion Is Coming

Revised: July 19, 2019

Registration for the upcoming family reunion has been closed and the survey link has been turned off.

For those of you who have submitted requests to attend the reunion, you will be receiving confirmation emails shortly, if not already.

A cutoff was established in order to ensure adequate notice is given to vendors; and suffienct food is on-hand for the scheduled luncheon on the first day.

As of today we have 48 people attending which is 5 times the number that attended our first reunion in Nauvoo 10 years ago!

Here is the list of activities for those who have planned to attend the reunion this year in Nauvoo, Illinois and the surrounding area:

Friday - August 2
1. Tour of the lands owned by the Carter family - we will actually be within site of most of their properties. Following our tour we will go to the Fletcher Cemetery and have an unveiling of John Carter's tombstone.
2. Our family meeting will (hopefully - still need to firm up the site) be held in Tioga (Morleyville) with lunch provided (again hopefully - still need to work on that.)
3. Dinner (no host) at the Nauvoo Hotel Buffet (opens at 4:30)
4. Nauvoo Pageant that evening (British Pageant - British converts coming to Nauvoo.)

Saturday - August 3
1. Tour the sites at Nauvoo proper (Visitor's center, Land Office, Smith Property, Temple, etc.) - We will probably let you do this on your own.

Optional - on Saturday
Lunch at Grandpa John's in Nauvoo

Optional - on Saturday
Nauvoo Pageant - The traditional version

We will be sending out an email newsletter to all people on our mail list in the near future. If we don't have your email please message me (Robert Givens) so I can get you added to our mailing list.
