On Easter Sunday the Branch/Outlaw Family Reunion (B/O) enjoyed their Spring Has Sprung event, the kickoff for reunion preparation. “The weather, food, crowd, music, games, fellowshipping were wonderful,” reported enthusiastic reunion organizer Rick Branch, Capital Heights, Maryland. In the tradition of Easter, instead of hiding eggs for the kids to find, they set out 150 balloons, five of which contained money ($1, $5, $10, $20 and a $100 bill). All were found except for the $5 dollar bill.
The event brought new family members not able to meet at the last reunion. There were three inflatables for the kids and three genres of musical entertainment: Gospel, jazz and danceable music. They interviewed all the members who were willing to record on DVD, which they make available for purchase.
