Rowan Family Reunion 2020
125th Family Reunion
We have been coming to the Rowan Family Reunion since 1896. Now the reunion is coming to YOU!! The dates will still be August 14-16. 2020. Due to COVID-19 we will not have our traditional family reunion, coming together in one location. We will have our 125th Rowan Family Reunion in a
"New Normal". A Virtual Family Reunion. This virtual reunion will allow you to enjoy and participate as if you were actually there. This concept is being done across the globe and has proven to be extremely effective. We see businesses, schools, churches, and numerous others using this technology to bring people together for a purpose. Until this virus is no longer a threat to our families and loved ones, we will use whatever means necessary to bring us together.
The committee has done a great job of ensuring we continue what our ancestors started many years ago. We need you to join us on celebrating our 125th Rowan Family Reunion.
