What’s Your Favorite Recipe from the Family Cookbooks? Share Your Delicious Memories!

Hello, beloved family members!

As we get closer to our family reunion on Saturday, July 27th, I’ve been reminiscing about all the wonderful meals we’ve shared over the years. Our family cookbooks are treasure troves of culinary delights, filled with recipes that have been passed down through generations.

I thought it would be fun and heartwarming to hear from all of you: What’s your favorite recipe from our family cookbooks?

Maybe it’s a dish you’ve enjoyed at every reunion, a treat that reminds you of your childhood, or a meal you love to cook for your own family. Whatever it is, we’d love to hear about it!

Here’s how you can share:

  1. Comment below with the name of your favorite recipe and why it’s special to you.
  2. If you have a photo of the dish or a memorable moment associated with it, please share that too!
  3. Feel free to include any tips or tweaks you’ve made to the original recipe that you think others might enjoy.

Let’s celebrate our rich culinary heritage and maybe even discover some new family favorites along the way. I can’t wait to read about your favorite recipes and the memories they bring back!

Happy cooking, and see you all at the reunion!

Reunion Day is Switched

During the 2022 reunion all in attendance voted on whether to switch the reunion to the last Saturday in July or to keep it as the last Sunday in July. The overwhelming majority of the vote was to move the reunion to the last Saturday in July. The board and officers hope that switching the reunion to the last Saturday in July helps you and more family members to be able to attend. Please plan on attending the 2023 Watts Reunion on Saturday, July 29, 2023. We look forward to gathering together again.

The Reunion This Sunday

The reunion is this Sunday (July 31st). In addition to the voting for Directors and Officers happening at the business meeting this year there is an important topic to be voted on. The business meeting starts at 10:30 am. We look forward to seeing you there.

We need your help

We (the Board of Directors and the Officers) always want to have people attend the reunion, but it is really important that people attend the reunion this year. With the passing of Brenda Watts (President of the Reunion) this brings about a vacancy in the officers. We need you and others to come for the business meeting at 10:30 am on Sunday, July 31st. Please help us out and spread the word about the 2022 Watts Reunion. We look forward to seeing you there.
