Dear family members:
We hope that this letter finds you in the best of health and spirits.
With just over 12 months to go, we are truly looking forward to the 22nd (bi-annual) 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 have worked very hard to put together a weekend of activities and entertainment that all will enjoy.
We’re going to have a “Lowcountry Boil!” Get ready to have fun in the sun while we party, relax and learn more about our family’s history than you could have ever imagined. As you are aware, the 2021 reunion planning committee has selected Beaufort, South Carolina as the host location for next year’s Family Reunion. Beaufort County is rich in history, culturally diverse, and home to a pristine natural outdoor environment, registered historic districts, three military installations, award-winning educational systems, fine dining, shopping, and so much more! Our Friday evening Welcome Ceremony will feature a “down home” Fish Fry with an original-recipe “Hoppin John” prepared by Anson Mills made from their own, farm-fresh Carolina Gold rice. We will top off the night with an after party hosted by Charleston’s own, DJ Chuck Anthanio. Our Gala will have a semi-formal, Lowcountry flair, and a Mardi Gras theme, with attire inspired by the artwork of South Carolina’s celebrated son, Jonathan Green (See page 11 below for sample gala attire and catalog information.)
Beaufort, South Carolina boasts a wide array of fun activities and attractions, including cultural tours, outlet shopping, museums, water sports and much, much more. We have an amazing agenda planned, with activities and entertainment for attendees of all ages.
In this family reunion registration packet, you will find:
We look forward to seeing you all in Beaufort next year…right where it all started.
In the event that 2021 Reunion has to be canceled, all Registration Fees will be fully refunded
