Hello Cousins and Welcome to the
Robert and Sallie Joyner Edwards Family Reunion, Inc. "Website"
The CHARITY LINE will be your host this year. We are proud of our heritage and look forward to seeing our many cousins from the Charity Line. We are asking our cousins to help us make this reunion the very best reunion ever. H. Rico Hopson is our Charity Line point person. Please contact Rico at: (910) 262-5233
Established on July 4, 1934, under the inspiration of Cousin Wiley Morgan of Bailey, the Edwards Family Reunion met annually on the 4th of July or on the holiday weekend. Our Constitution, however, has set the official date of “The Dinner” (which The Edwards Family Reunion is called) to be the 4th of July; and the Reunion is set to be held yearly.
On July 4th, 2014, we will hold our 80th consecutive family reunion. Those of us who are regular or frequent attendees look forward to this homecoming to our ancestral home and all of the fun, food, fellowship, friendship, and love that we receive. For those of you who have never come, you have missed a treat and a fabulous blessing; and we want to meet and see YOU!!! You will be warmly and lovingly welcomed and received!!! We want ALL family lines to come and participate in every festivity and activity. There will be something for everyone—the very young, the young, the mature, and the very mature.
Please see below for information about the costs of the weekend festivities and detail information about our Host Hotel. We want everyone to come, to meet and greet, and to enjoy!!!
