The 2011 Clan Dickey Family Reunion was held Sunday, June 25, 2011, at the Legion Hall in Divernon with some 38 family members and guests in attendance. The Legion Hall provided shelter from the persistent rain all afternoon.

The meal began at 12:30 with a blessing given by Bob Dickey. Everyone enjoyed a potluck meal along with meat provided by Dennis and Tom Dickey. Food was plentiful and, as always, there was more than enough to eat.

The business meeting began with a welcome to all. Big thanks to Aunt Babe for securing the Legion Hall, which suited our purpose well today.

A moment of silence in the remembrance of any family members who passed on during the past year was held: Jim Earles

Announcements and reports, including signing the attendance sheet, minutes of the 2010 reunion and the treasurer's report were taken care of. Any expenses for this year should be turned in to Nancy.
