Programming and providing support for this service has been a labor
of love since 1997. We are one of the few services online who values our users'
privacy, and have never sold your information. We have even fought hard to defend your
privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket
to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we
also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.
Show your support by donating any amount. (Note: We are still technically a for-profit company, so your
contribution is not tax-deductible.)
Well, we have less than a month to go before the 2009 Cleveland Family Reunion on September 6th in Union Mississippi!
This is our last big 'push' to make sure everyone knows they are invited. Everyone is always welcome to email or call me anytime with new addresses to put on file & rush out more invitations.
We are so excited! We have 125+ attending the reunion and all plans are coming together beautifully.
People are coming from 10 states and as far away as California!
If you haven't booked your hotel reservations yet, the deadline is August 14th. The rates have been reduced to $64 per night!
Please call Yvette Love, event coordinator at the Hilton Garden Inn at 601-389-6600 and tell her the group code 'CLEVE'.
So many of you have returned your RSVP cards — thank you! They help us a great deal in planning for refreshments, tents, chairs, tables, parking and other details. If you still have yours and are planning to attend, please mail them as soon as you can...
I have added a new link on the bottom of the web page of the 2009 Reunion start listing everyone by 'line' (Children of Ibra Harris Cleveland).
We are honored to have several Cleveland family members attending from Ibra Harris Cleveland's Uncle, too!
And this year we will be having numerous teens and children of all ages with lots of activities planned..
Please feel free to pass this along so that I can send everyone interested an invite. I look forward to meeting and greeting everyone...
One last thing to remember is to bring your photos. We will have a portable computer and scanner ready to scan them.
The digital files will be added to the Cleveland Archives. If allowed by the owner, we can also put images on the website listed below.
