Broadus family holds reunion

January 06, 2012|Madge Miles | Around Jonathan Street

The Broadus family had not had a reunion since 2002, but the family decided to do it again and dedicated the most recent reunion to their Aunt Sara (Woodson), the last of 12 siblings.

It was full of surprises for her as family members came from California, Arkansas, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and other parts of Maryland to celebrate and surprise her with their presence.  

Aunt Sara was even one of the 50/50 winners, and everyone is sure she will spend her winnings any way she wants.   

It was a blessed day filled with fun with family, who for some, met for the first time.

Special thanks are extended to Hampton Wedlock, Tish Mims and Betsy Broadus for putting the reunion together. They also want to thank all of the family and friends that made the day a great success.

They are looking forward to a bigger and better reunion in 2013 with another weekend affair.
