FAMILY REUNION PLANNING TIPS

A professional’s advice on how to make the event stress-free

By Carmen Derby

It is easy to enjoy family in the beautiful Black Hills at Canyon Lake Resort.

FAMILY REUNION PLANNING TIPS

RAPID CITY, SD - –
Family reunions can be:
a.) Fun
b.) Relaxing
c.) Pleasurable
d.) Stressful

The Canyon Lake Resort & Chophouse works with you to take stress out of the options. The staff at Canyon Lake Resort & Chophouse have been helping plan family reunions and special events for more than 12 years. Their top tips to a stress-free event with your family will help you select fun, relaxing, and pleasurable every time.

• Start with the basics: Before jumping into all of the small details, decide on a budget, date, and location.
• Make a checklist: Nothing is worse than the feeling when you forgot something. Avoid this by staying organized with a checklist of tasks.
• Form organizing committees: You shouldn’t have to plan the whole event by yourself! Viewpoints from other relatives will be helpful. Organize groups to be in charge of budget, food, venue, activities, and anything else you could use some extra help with.
• Choose what type of reunion you want at the beginning: Deciding on a theme or style will help you plan the rest of the event. Picnics and barbecues are popular choices that get the family outside to socialize.
• Communicate often: People forget. It’s unavoidable. You can avoid last minute reminders by having open communication leading up to the event. Send save the date cards, invitations, reminder notes, emails, and set up a website where family members can check to find event details rather than calling you with every question.
• Order event t-shirts: They may never be worn again, but family reunion t-shirts serve a purpose. For some, they serve as a keepsake. For most, they serve as an effective way to identify the group and help the event flow smoothly.
• Take time to enjoy the event: No special event, whether it is a family reunion, wedding, or birthday, is worth the effort unless you relax and participate. It is your time to make memories too.
