The history of the Roberts family reunion

It is family reunion time, so bear with me; it could be the last time I will write about our family and their reunions. We have been having our reunions every two years for 34 years. We have had the reunions in many states, from Minnesota to Kentucky, from Door County in Northern Wisconsin to Rend Lake in Southern Illinois, and one year we met in North Carolina. The reunion this year is to be at the Chateau (formerly Jumers) hotel, here in Normal, and will last for three days. We are the only ones left in our generation, and since we only meet every two years I guess they thought it best to meet where it would be convenient for Christine and me.
