We are going to have yearly Russell and Avonell Family reunions. Monta will be host this year. The host will be able to choose the location and the date. They will also be able to make assignments as needed. This will replace our official family Christmas party. Please feel free to have unofficial family parties as desired.

Bathrooms at Zion
Each year someone will be assigned to clean the bathroom at Zion and to provide toilet paper. Jody's family will be responsible for the bathroom for the 2009 reunion. Assignments will be from the Oldest child to the youngest (Natalie will be assigned for 2010).

Getting Along
It was agreed that no will gossip anymore. Any negative feelings need to be dealt with directly by speaking to the person you have a problem with. This way we will have a stronger family relationships and there will be less hurt feelings. Let's make sure that all of our communication is positive.
