Watkins re­union, a real suc­cess

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

MANY gath­ered in Euroa for the Watkins fam­ily re­union to cel­e­brate and look back on a life­time of mem­o­ries.

Gath­er­ing on Oc­to­ber 27 and 28 held sig­nif­i­cance, as it was the clos­est week­end to the date when John Watkins bought the prop­erty of 40 acres on the Sevens Creek (The Wil­lows).

All Watkins descen­dants gath­ered at the Sevens Creek Pub for din­ner, and lunch and the af­ter­noon was en­joyed at the Mid­dle.

With 70 peo­ple in at­ten­dance through­out the af­ter­noon, or­gan­iser Glenda Paulette (Watkins) was thrilled to have that many gath­ered for a day of rem­i­nisc­ing.

Large posters were cre­ated ton show mem­o­ries and in­for­ma­tion on each fam­ily so that those who came could per­haps learn some­thing about their fam­ily his­tory that may not have al­ready known.
