Nottoli/Nelson family goes to the ranch

The Nottoli/Nelson Family Reunion changes from Colorado to Michigan every three years, but locations in each state remain the same. We found two locations we love and wish to stay with.

In Rothbury, Michigan, it’s the Double JJ Ranch because older family members like it. We arrive Monday night and leave Thursday morning.

No matter what we always have a talent show so we can reminisce and share our lives. Basketball and softball tournaments, family obstacle course, family pictures and a business meeting are always scheduled.

We send out an informal newsletter three times a year and stay in touch by snail mail, e-mail and a family website at A press release for the family’s hometown paper and local media announce where the reunion will be held.
