In June, my daughter and I traveled to Ohio with my parents (my wife stayed home to tend the livestock) for a family reunion. It has always been my great Uncle Ron’s dream to host an all-day music event with family (and that is exactly what he did)! They tried to coax me into singing, but I said that the event would be better served if I designed a keepsake program (and that’s exactly what I did)! For all of you print geeks, the 11″ x 17″ piece was printed head-to-head on 70lb text weight stock (no bleed) and Z-folded. The front, when pulled out, provides details of the day’s activities. The back pays tribute to my great aunt Marilyn who passed away prior the reunion. She was one of the original planners. The copy was written by her husband (my great uncle Mike). Since the content is deeply personal, I chose to obliterate it.
I’ve been going to reunions ever since I can remember and have to say that this was, by far, the most fun. Ron was the first to take the stage in the barn where everything took place and he was the last one to leave! I think this picture illustrates how pleased he was.
