San Antonio, Texas -- (PRWEB) November 7, 2005 -- Margaret Rodgers believes that family reunions are an important way to bring relatives closer together. But she also knows that in today’s world many families cannot gather because of time, money and distance constraints. So the 89-old grandmother has designed the perfect alternative: the Paper Family Reunion.
“The Paper Family Reunion is a fun and easy way to get to know your relatives,” Rodgers explained. “The information can be compiled into a lasting book of memories and preserved and updated for years to come.”
The Paper Family Reunion Kit, which retails for $24.95, streamlines the process of gathering family information. It comes complete with personalized form letters, reunion questionnaires, mailing and return envelopes with personalized labels, a tracking sheet to record reunion participants and tips for compiling the information into a lasting Reunion Book.
Rodgers is quick to point out that her Paper Family Reunion goes far beyond the information ordinarily found in a genealogy. “The Paper Family Reunion includes photographs and allows participants to record information about their work, hobbies, military service, volunteer efforts, aspirations and lifetime memories,” she explained. “It creates a wonderful ‘snapshot’ of a family member for future generations.”
Rodgers is also aware of the timeliness of her idea in light of soaring fuel costs. “It’s the perfect antidote to the high cost of travel,” she adds. In that case, maybe some families will get together after all this holiday season—at least, that is, on paper.
Margaret Rodgers is the creator of the Paper Family Reunion and the author of The Other Way Home: A Guide for Seniors who Live with their Children. Additional information is available at http://www.paperfamilyreunion.com.
