2015 Womble Reunion–Final

This year marked the 59th or 60th (depending on how we are counting) consecutive Womble Family Reunion.  It has been held for many years in Morse, TX at the Community Center.  Some years have been in Amarillo, some in Stinnett, some in Spearman, Dalhart, Panhandle.  But home is the Morse community.  I can remember one we had at my grandfather, W.T. “Tab” Womble’s farm.  This is the family of Lorenzo Dow Womble.  For any who need some family tree information, please just let me know. 

Anyway, for many years the reunion has been shrinking.  That happens to a lot family gatherings.  The elder members die and the younger members scatter and become more involved in the immediate family.  Which is as it should be!  We have struggled with organizing the reunion, places to hold the reunion to entice more people, things for the young people to do.  But is just not working.  So this year we voted to end the Womble Family Reunion.  I have a very heavy heart but also know this is for the best. 

Here are lots of pictures taken of the attendees this year.

One of our family had the idea to put the tree up on the wall on pieces of paper.  I so wish I had taken better pictures.  It was great to see who belonged to who. (Linda, I would love some copies of this if you got good pictures!)  I many have to just do my own so I can see where everyone is in the great scheme.07-26-15 Womble Reunion 0107-26-15 Womble Reunion 0207-26-15 Womble Reunion 03Looking over proposals for reunions.07-26-15 Womble Reunion 0407-26-15 Womble Reunion 06Garrison was such a happy baby!07-26-15 Womble Reunion 0907-26-15 Womble Reunion 10He was fascinated with Cynthia’s nails that glittered.07-26-15 Womble Reunion 1307-26-15 Womble Reunion 1407-26-15 Womble Reunion 1507-26-15 Womble Reunion 1607-26-15 Womble Reunion 1707-26-15 Womble Reunion 1807-26-15 Womble Reunion 1907-26-15 Womble Reunion 20Silent auction tables.07-26-15 Womble Reunion 2107-26-15 Womble Reunion 2307-26-15 Womble Reunion 2507-26-15 Womble Reunion 2607-26-15 Womble Reunion 2707-26-15 Womble Reunion 2807-26-15 Womble Reunion 2907-26-15 Womble Reunion 3007-26-15 Womble Reunion 31Steve, you ruined the picture by moving!07-26-15 Womble Reunion 3207-26-15 Womble Reunion 3307-26-15 Womble Reunion 3407-26-15 Womble Reunion 3607-26-15 Womble Reunion 3707-26-15 Womble Reunion 3807-26-15 Womble Reunion 3907-26-15 Womble Reunion 4007-26-15 Womble Reunion 41Food.  One of the best reasons to go to a Womble gathering.  Yum.07-26-15 Womble Reunion 4207-26-15 Womble Reunion 4307-26-15 Womble Reunion 44Two babies this year!  07-26-15 Womble Reunion 4507-26-15 Womble Reunion 4607-26-15 Womble Reunion 47Garrison could not take any more.07-26-15 Womble Reunion 4807-26-15 Womble Reunion 4907-26-15 Womble Reunion 5007-26-15 Womble Reunion 51

And another reunion is gone.  Forever.  However, we discussed that if anyone is interested, Memorial Day at Lieb Cemetery is a big family event.  People bring covered dishes and gather at the community center for lots of memories and renewing of friendships and connections.  Go join.
