Fall is here, which means our annual Joseph F. Smith family reunion is just around the corner!
Please join us Monday, November 12, 2012, for the Joseph F. Smith Birthday celebration Family Home Evening at the Monument Park Stake Center, 1320 East Wasatch Drive, Salt Lake City, Utah.
Registration begins at 6:30, Program begins promptly at 7:00.
As always, we will honor our 8 and 12 year-old family members. They will be singing “The
Army of Helaman,” so remember to practice a little. The children’s program for children ages 3-7
will be held in the primary area of the building. A light refreshment will be served after the program.
This year, each wife will be represented as descendants share special experiences with Grandpapa Smith unique to that family line. We will be privileged to hear from John Smith (Mary), Linda Nebeker (Alice Ann), Florence Jacobsen (Sarah Richards), Kristen Oaks (Julina) and Elder Russell M. Ballard (Edna).
As we consider the tremendous privilege we have to carry on the great legacy of our extraordinary heritage, we hope you will make your best efforts to join us for an uplifting evening. We encourage you to visit the family website at josephfsmith.org for family announcements, stories, other links and information. We invite you to donate online or at the reunion. Your financial contributions make these reunions possible, as well as support other lines of the Smith family for special projects, family homes and memorials, education projects, family history, the family web site, records and displays, etc. The disbursement of funds are carefully considered and voted upon by the Family Committee.
It is a blessing and a privilege to serve on the Family Committee. There are many ways you can serve and be an active part of carrying on the Smith Family legacy. I am grateful for the extraordinary efforts from the Family Association Officers, Data Stewards and Trustees: Mary Donoho, Vivian Adams, Jared Glade, Andrew Smith, Chris Rasmussen, Linda Erickson, Laura Wall, Mary Lou Little, Annette Tanner, Isaac Jackson and Danny Wood whose combined efforts behind the scenes make our reunion a success and keep our family connected.
May you each feel the blessings of our legacy in your individual families!
