Robbins Reunion – Updates

We are now less than three weeks away from the 2022 Robbins Bicentennial Reunion!  I thought I’d update some things on this blog and the Facebook page over the next week or so.  Don’t forget that you can also email the reunion at robbinsreunion2022@gmail.com with questions (I usually check it a couple times a day).

Publicity:  An article appeared in the Greensburg Daily News the last week of June announcing the reunion.  I was interviewed live by Greensburg radio station WTRE (AM 1330) last week and hopefully some local listeners caught it.  I have also mailed out a number of flyers to the two libraries in the county, the visitor’s center, the museum, and a number of churches.  If there is any last minute publicity anyone would like to try – go for it!  (I’m attaching a PDF copy below of the flyer which you are welcome to print out, download, or distribute any way you think useful).

Food:  As a reminder, this event will be a potluck.  While a couple of us who are coming some distance are hoping to visit Costco in Indianapolis and pick up some food trays, it would be great if attendees can bring main, side, or dessert dishes.  Coffee will be provided thanks to one of our cousin volunteers!

Expenses:  We only have two dedicated expenses, which is good for a unbudgeted family reunion!  The community center costs $350 and a professional photographer who will be taking a large group photo costs $100.  We have folks who can cover the costs up front but we are hoping they can be shared out among attendees afterward.  We will have a donation jar at the reunion.  Any amount collected in excess of the above expenses will be given to the Decatur County Historical Society.

  1. I checked the online article for Greensburg daily News that showed the correct date – but also an incorrect date of June 30th in the article.(which was the first date mentioned in the article) I thought it might be worth asking them to print a correction. if we’re no other reason it would give you one more shot of publicity in the local paper just before the event. I didn’t contact them directly. I thought it might be better to coordinate that through you.

  2. Wondering if that was me that is bringing the coffee? I know we talked about it but I don’t remember committing. Let me know if I need to pitch in and do this?
