Family Groups
We had sixty-one attending the 2004 reunion, about half of what we'd hoped. Must have been because we met on Independence Day. Fewer people -- better chance to visit with everyone!

Door Prizes
Family members came through royally with items to
be given away as door prizes. May of them were
lovingly hand-crafted, AND there were nearly enough
for eveyone in this smaller-than-usual group to win!

Candid Shots
The Martins always has fun when they get together. The weather this year was humid, but not so very hot. Cousins sat under shade trees at Forest Park, palyed bocci game and scrambled on playground equipment after lunch was served, family photos taken, and door prizes distributed.
