"This photo was our group picture in the hotel lobby in the Rose Hall Resort in Jamaica W.I. This was our first reunion with 23 in attendance from all over the USA. We also used this event as a community service project, where we donated clothing, shoes, and school supplies to the people in the village of Diamond District in Clarendon, Jamaica. This is in a remote area on the island of Jamaica where the people have no indoor plumbing, thier cooking is still done on wood fires outside in the yard of the homes and the people are extremely poor but rich in spirit. Our family traveled 3 hours from the hotel through the mountains, on unpaaved roads to host a celebration for the people of the village which included food, activities, sharing of stories, and the donations. Our family is from this village dating back to 1898. We haven't forgotten from where we have come and wanted to give back to those that are still there."
