Show & Tell / Talent Show

This year, we are thinking of adding a show and tell / talent show to our reunion schedule which would give all of our wonderful children an opportunity to present to the group their special skills or experiences.

Kids: Do you play an instrument or are you a great singer? Can you cheer or juggle? Are you good at telling jokes? Do you have a special item or photo from your life in Bulgaria you would like to show and explain? Can you do magic? Have you done a home school project about Bulgaria or adoption or family that you would like everyone to see? The sky is the limit to what you could share with the group.

Parents: Please let us know if any of your kids would be interested in being a part of the show and tell/ talent show, so we can decide if this would be a good addition to our reunion activities. You can email me with any questions or information at viviane8 @

Do not wait to make your reserations! Campground and cabins are getting booked for the June 22-24 weekend and I do not want anyone to miss festivities!  If you are a "maybe" check the local hotels and reserve a room that may have a better cancellation policy than the park.
