2. Who is organizing this event?

Kania McGhee and Angela ("Angie") Powell are sisters who were born, raised and continue to reside in Michigan. They are the great grand daughters of Thomas & Edmonia Holmes, Granddaughters of Dora Ross, and daughters of Cynthia Adams.

Other family members have participated in committee phone calls and have volunteered to help make this reunion special. 

3. We haven't had a reunion in years. Why now? 

Our last major family gathering was in 2004 for Edmonia Holmes', "Big Mama's", 100th birthday celebration. It's time we get together again!

4. Are there plans to organize a family reunion in the future once large gatherings are safe? 

If there is an interest for a family reunion in the future, we would love to collaborate with other family members to make this happen.
