2009 Vick Family Reunions

I wonder how many Vick Family reunions there will be this year. The Joseph Vick Family of America (the largest clan of Vicks in the U.S.) will hold its 2009 reunion July 17-19, 2009, in Vicksburg, MS, at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Vicksburg.

The JVFOA reunion committee has reserved a block of rooms for the three nights. The number of rooms is limited, so if you plan to attend you should make your reservations as soon as possible to ensure you get a reservation at the JVFOA discounted rate of $89 per night.

Just call 601-634-8777 to make your reservation. Be sure to tell the reservations clerk you are with the Joseph Vick Family of America. Continental breakfast is included.

The hotel is located at 4330 S. Frontage Road, Vicksburg, MS 39180. More details about reunion activities will be announced soon. You can also watch the Joseph Vick Family of America Facebook group (if you use Facebook group) for more details. If you do use Facebook and you are not a member of the Joseph Vick Family of America Facebook group, you might want to join the group. It is a great way to meet other Vicks and to keep in touch.

The Vick Family of Texas (Joseph Vick clan members in Texas) has announced the following details of its June 26-27, 2009 reunion which will be held in Salado, TX:Friday, June 26, 6:30-8:30pm, Schoeff’s BBQ Dinner, The Rose Mansion, Sun Room & PatioSaturday, June 27, 11:00am-3:00pm, Vick Reunion, The Stagecoach Inn, Longhorn Room-Fajita Buffet, 12:00pm-Bingo, Silent & Live Auction, Kid’s GamesSaturday, June 27, 4:00-8:00pm, Vick Ranch-Bonfire Dinner, 6:00pm-Homemade Ice Cream, Live Entertainment, Kid’s ActivitiesThe following accommodations have been arranged:

Do other Vick clans have reunions planned? It would be interesting to know about them wherever they may be – in the U.S. or anywhere in the world.
