Family Reunions is a time of gathering, a time when you see family and friends. My family consists of hundreds of individual, young and old. It’s a time to reflect back on the good old days. It never seems to amazes me, no matter where our family meet there are plenty of new friends of family members. Each year new member are inducted into the family. I can honestly say that about one-third of the attendees are friend and their families. The Fortner Reunion has grown over the years. We have been having yearly reunions since 1985 and still going strong. Family comes from near and far. We have California, Louisiana, Philadelphia, Michigan, Chicago, Memphis, Alabama Texas, Kansas, Illinois, Missouri, Mississippi and Tennessee. Total attending our reunion is now over 200 family and friends.
