T-Shirt Design - Time To Vote

The polls have closed.

Here are the designs received for the 2013 reunion T-shirts.  You can click on the images for a larger view.  Some of the kids forgot that we said for the images to be kept in black and white, so if a multi-colored design is chosen, we will ask the winner to reproduce it in black and white only.

Voting Process: Voting will begin on February 10, 2013 at 7:00 pm ET.  Voting will end on February 17, 2013 at 7:00 pm EST.  One vote per person, child or adult, (all we can do is appeal to your sense of honesty and fairness here).  You must identify yourself in some way in a comment and let us know which design (include the letter) you want to see on the t-shirts this year.  The design with the most number of votes wins.  In case of a tie, we will have another vote to break the tie between those designs.

Thanks to all of our young artists for submitting their terrific designs.  Now let the voting begin.  Good luck.

Silent Auction?

One of our new families for the 2013 reunion approached us with an idea for a silent auction to be held at the reunion.  They have already offered to donate a few items.  However, to make it worthwhile, we would need more.  Is anyone interested in doing this?

Funds raised could be used for next year's reunion expenses or to sponsor an orphan cause in Bulgaria or both.

Here are some ideas for potential silent auction items:

1) Gift baskets (lots of great examples in various price ranges can be found on Pinterest)

2) Handmade items from our talented artists and crafters: quilts, scarves, greeting cards, paintings, children's clothing, etc.

3) Homemade preserves and sweet treats from our gifted cooks and bakers

If anyone is interested in having an auction and contributing an item, please leave a comment or email us.  If there's enough participation, we will try our best to move forward with this idea.

While I am here, I also want to thank our families who have approached their placing agencies about making a donation to this year's reunion and the families who have offered to sponsor certain aspects of the event themselves (breakfast cereal, paper goods, and so on).  We really appreciate everyone's efforts and know that with wonderful families like ours, this will be another great reunion.
