Dear Family,

It is time to prepare for our 53rd Downing-Reed Family Reunion, Friday, August 8th and Saturday, August 9th in Des Moines, Iowa. 

Activities for both days will be held at Grandview Enclosed Shelter, Cabin 2 – 2410 E. 32nd St. 
(Friday, August 8 from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm and Saturday, August 9 from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm) 
We ask that those traveling 4 hours or less to bring their favorite signature side dish and/or dessert to share. The host family will provide table service and water.
This year’s theme is “We Are Family – Rainbows bring joy that tie the family together”. Break out your favorite rainbow colors, and reconnect with family members. Possession and/or consumption of alcohol is not permitted in the park.
Hotel accommodations are provided at Magnuson Hotel Des Moines Airport (soon to be Ramada),
1810 Army Post Road, Des Moines, IA, US, 50315, (515) 287-6464. (See attachment)

Des Moines / Waterloo family members will be available for those wanting to sightsee. A map of the city will also be available. You may, also, want to plan time to visit the Iowa State Fair, 3000 E. Grand Ave. (August 7-17).

Please be sure that family members close to you received their letters and/or emails so no one is omitted.

We look forward to reuniting with and fellowshipping with family and friends. Please contact your Host family members if you have any questions. 

Please RSVP by Monday, July 28, 2014 so an adequate amount of meat can be ordered.
