As usual, words are inadequate to express our appreciation for all of the family members and friends who made the trip to Brownsville for our annual reunion. In 2009, Henry Barnes, Jr., suggested that we change the name from the Martha Nelson Parker Barnes Reunion to Proud to be a Nelson Reunion.  Our 2010 theme was developed as a result of his vision of uniting the Nelson family.


Keep checking the website for photos that were taken during the weekend.  We had several excellent photographers who shared their talent by taking photos.


On Sunday, July 4, we attended Prospect CME Church (Julie & David Taylor attend here) and thanks to you we were able to donate $420.00 to the ministry.


We had two 50/50 drawings for the Gregory Mann scholarship fund.  On Friday night, we were able to donate $55.00 and on Saturday, we were able to donate $400.00 to the fund. Emanuel Barnes (Texas) wants to raise enough money in 2011 to donate $1000.00 to the scholarship fund. We can do it!


The family website will be updated with additional reflections and highlights. 


We hope to see you in South Bend for the 2011 Reunion. This will be our 30th year.
