Tate Family Reunion

Our Tate Family used to get together every other year for Our Tate Family Reunion. This began in 2000 and each time we held the reunion in a different location and each year our family reunion has been very enjoyable.

We have met in Athens, Ga; Chattanooga, Tenn; Helen, Ga; Charleston SC; and Nashville, Tenn. Our 2010 Tate Family Reunion was in Pendleton South Carolina and we enjoyed being "Together Again In 2010"!

NOTE to Reunion Attendees: Unfortunately, the Reunion Committee has had to announce that there will not be a Tate Family Reunion in 2012. Hopefully, some of our young folks will re-organize and get our reunions going again. Thanks. It's been wonderful and we sure made lots of great memories! The best to you and yours! I sure miss our reunions and hope we will be able to do it again soon. The grand kids are all still talking about them so maybe that is the generation to plan the next one.

NOTE To Visitors to Our Tate Family Reunion Official Web page - Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoy seeing how our family plans our Reunions. Please sign our guestbook below and tell us about your Reunions.


Together Again In 2010

Friday's Schedule

Everyone arrived safely in Clemson SC for the 2010 Tate Family Reunion

Friday we began our Tate Family Reunion with a Welcome by our Master of Ceremonies, Matt Day and our Director in Name Only (DINO) Betty Delorme. Announcements and a briefing followed as well as the traditional visit from the Welcome Lady and her son, Billy Bob Bubba Joe Forrester III. This year Billy Bob Bubba Jo Forrester IV joined in the Welcome Skit which was Clemson Cheers.We had supper at Rockhoppers Restaurant right down the hall from our Hospitality Room at the Ramada Inn. Everyone ordered what they wanted from the menu and were in charge of their own bill. Rockhoppers offers a wide variety to choose from. The Ramada Inn Clemson website describes Rockhoppers: "Rockhopper's is a family restaurant with a comfortable atmosphere and great food, quick and friendly service and affordable prices. All meals are homemade and guaranteed fresh."

After supper we returned to the Hospitality Room for the Traditional Tate Talk, Tate Trivia, Tate Family Bingo and of course the Chicken Dance and singing "All My Life's A Circle".

Our family needs to write a book about reunions

We are a creative bunch of people, if I do say so myself and our reunions were always such fun and very informative, too. We learned more about our ancestors and got to know each other better, too. I sure hope the younger generation will pick up this tradition of a reunion and carry it forward.
