Youngsters and oldsters alike agreed that the food was wonderful! Uncle Ludvic’s homemade sausage was to die for. Great Aunt Florence’s poticia deserved its wonderful reputation. But dinner didn’t last all afternoon. Adults were content to enjoy another cup of coffee and hear news of relatives too far away to attend but children were getting restless. They gathered around one of the tables to make Family Member Finders and learn about their relationship to other guests. Using Family Finders like talking puppets, children approached folks they’d not met. Family Finders showed their empty mouths until their family relationship was explained. Then they showed the “We’re related!” side. Even shy children joined the fun and enjoyed the sense of belonging to one big family.
