Ike Ivery Family Reunion 2019

Pocono Mountains, Pennsylvania

Dear family members:

Latest update (Feb 27, 2019)

The 2019 family reunion committee is very pleased to announce the details of the 21st Ike Ivery family reunion! We are so excited to get everyone together, share our history, and create new memories.

We are honored (and humbled) to plan/host our family reunion and are sure this will be a very memorable event. We are working very hard to put together a weekend of activities and entertainment that all will enjoy.

While we doubt that you’ll even want to leave the amazing resort, the Pocono Mountains also boast a wide array of fun activities and attractions, including outlet shopping, a casino, museums, zoos, amusement parks and much, much more.

The 2019 reunion planning committee is pleased to announce that we have selected the Kalahari Resort and Convention Center in the beautiful Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania as the host resort for the family reunion!

Kalahari Resorts are inspired by an African philosophy that embraces the spirit of Ubuntu, a belief that every person’s humanity is tied to everyone else’s so that what you do affects the whole world. We feel that the inspiration behind the resort, along with their focus on family, tied together nicely with our family reunion concept as well as the theme for the 2019 reunion which is:


As we are sure that you are aware, Marvel’s Black Panther movie is a cultural phenomenon that has shattered box office records and sparked excitement and an embrace of African culture, history and excellence that, for many of us, is reminiscent of the historic election of President Barack Obama.

In keeping with that spirit of excitement and pride, we hope to inspire our younger family members to reach their full potential while maintaining our family reunion tradition. We are descendants of Isaac “Ike” Ivery, a great example of resiliency - under the most adverse circumstances. He is our “Black Panther/Superhero”. With that in mind, we have an amazing agenda planned, with activities and entertainment for attendees of all ages.
