Doolittles of America Reunion
Dearborn, Michigan, August 16-19, 2018
"Getting to Know Each Other"
The focus of this reunion will be "Getting to Know Each Other." We will join in shared experiences where there will be plenty of opportunity to get to know each other while enjoying the activities. The reunion will feature a tour of the Henry Ford Museum, a dinner cruise on the Detroit Princess (a large, very popular, tour boat that plies the Detroit River, the border between US and Canada), and other activities.
We also plan to have a display of your own interests; bring something that tells everyone else a bit about yourself - a scrapbook, a craft item, some memento of your profession, family, or place of abode. Even a performance piece if you'd like.
Family Heritage and Genealogy
In addition, we will have a couple of seminars, one on what is in the Doolittle's of America database, and how it can help you know your heritage, and one on a topic yet to be determined - but probably focused on some aspect of learning more about your family heritage and genealogy - how to learn about the other sides, those families that wedded Doolittle's to create who you are.
And there will be a fine dinner or two, a speaker and some music!

Of course, there will be a fee to pay for the food, tours, boat cruise, and other necessary stuff, so start saving up a bit. All the arrangements are not quite finished, so the final cost can’t be determined quite yet. A newsletter with registration details will be distributed soon, and again in the spring.
