Every year for the reunion, we decide what foods we are going to have, and then it is easy to let everyone know what to bring. We have a list with all the e-mail addresses. It makes it so much easier liaising with everyone. We also opened a Facebook Reunion page, where we can post pictures of the events.

Editor's Note: According to Wikipedia "A lapa is a structure that is popular in South Africa. It usually consists of a thatched roof supported by wooden poles. Lapas are commonly used as semi-open entertainment areas."
I want to start a family reunion tradition. We don't have one now but our family is getting pretty large with brothers and sisters moving away with kids, often to different states. My sister and I have decided to start to plan a family reunion and we hope to have it be a yearly event. What I am wondering is if anyone out there does this and if they have any advice? What works for you? Any tips or advice would be appreciated.
