Presha-Eudell Family Reunion (General Registration)

Presha-Eudell Family Reunion (General Registration)
Event on 2017-07-28 15:00:00
Greetings Family & Friends, Attendees of the Presha-Eudell Family Reunion are required to register prior June 24. Please keep in mind that registration fees have been set at the absolute lowest rate. Displayed in the schedule below, you can see that the fees will increase after May 26.   January-May 26 Adult (24 and older): Young Adult (18-22 years old): Teenager (12-17 years old): Child (4-12 years old): Infant/Toddler (1 month to 3 years old): FREE   May 27-June 23 Adult (24 and older): 4 Young Adult (18-22 years old): Teenager (12-17 years old): Child (4-12 years old): Infant/Toddler (1 month to 3 years old): FREE   What do my registration fees include? For the Dallas family reunion, your registration includes the family dinner, transportation to the family dinner your t-shirt, and souvenirs.    Are refunds available? Refunds will ONLY be issued should the family reunion be cancelled or if there is a situation (act of God) that prevents the attendee(s) from being able to attend.   Why are the registration rates subject to an increase over time? At the Vegas family reunion (2015) it was decided that rates for the Dallas reunion would not increase. In the past, many family members have stated that they were unable to attend due to the cost. For the simple fact that we want everyone to attend, we've researched venues and calculated the absolute lowest rates possible without this having to be a financial burden to anyone. Additional seed money raised at the Vegas reunion will be used to help offset some of the costs. Why is there a June 23, 2017 deadline to register? Final headcounts need to be provided in advance to the venues and any services we plan to use throughout the weekend. Registering late can is not only costly for you, but also for the organizer of the family reunion. This often leads to someone being generous enough to pick up the cost, cutting an activity, or dipping into seed money that has been set aside for something else. Most vendors will charge extra for making changes at the last minute. To ensure we are on-time and recieve the best of service we are providing them with the information they need sooner than later. If you are having trouble meeting this deadline, please contact the family reunion organizer (Jennifer Edge) as soon as possible. Why is there a registration fees and activity fees? For this reunion we are doing this a little different! Based on observation and feedback from the previous two reunions, there wasnt a strong agenda with available activities for everyone, plus not everyone wants to do the same things as everyone else. Registration fees will cover the fees associated for an individuals to attend and partake in the some of the basic activities. Activity fees will cover any extra activities in addition to (optional) the basic activities covered in the family reunion registration fees. Although the family reunion is about bringing us all together to learn our family heritage and create connections, everyone has different circumstances and may have interest to do more kid friendly activities, shop till they drop, or just want enjoy the big city night life. In the past the family reunion consisted of a family meet and greet (Friday), family banquet (Saturday), and church services (Sunday). With the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex being so big and offering a variety of things for everyone of all ages to do, it was decided that making things a la carte provided people with an agenda and options that are flexiable and affordable. Do I have to attend/participate in activities that have additional costs? No. That's the great thing about having the registration fees and activity fees seperate. In the past, everyone had to partake in the same activities. With there being so much to do in the area no one is obligated to participate in the additional activities. It is absolutly fine you are just coming to see everyone, get away for a little awhile, rest and relax. Remember, this is about enjoying yourself! Will I be responsible for paying for my meal at the family dinner? No. The cost of your meal for the family dinner is deducted from the registration fees. You will only be responsbile for paying for alcoholic beverages should you order anything from the bar. Can someone who is a non-family member attend? Yes. Friends of family membered are welcome to attend and will need to pay registration. I don't want a t-shirt. Is there a registration rate that excludes the cost of the t-shirt? No. Your family reunion t-shirt is all inclusive with registration fees. We ask everyone in attendance (including friends of family members that attend) that they wear their t-shirt during the day Saturday, July 29, 2017.

Presha-Eudell Family Reunion (Activity Fees)
Event on 2017-07-28 15:00:00
With all there is to do in Texas, some of the activities being offered during the PEFR will come at an additional cost.

Family Travel for Real Life 5

Family Travel for Real Life 5
Event on 2016-11-05 09:30:00
"Family Travel For Real Life" 5 is live! FT4RL will be held November 5th at the Hyatt Place Dallas Fort Worth Airport in Dallas, TX. Registration will begin at 9 AM and sessions will run from 9:30-5:00 with a lunch and afternoon snack break included in admission. FT4RL is the first seminar for frequent travelers (and those who wish to be) specifically tailored to the needs of families.  Created by Dia Adams, who writes the family travel blog The Deal Mommy and is resident Travel Hacker on TravelingMom.com  FT4RL brings together experts in various aspects of family travel to teach and, more importantly, to learn from each other. We cover topics from using miles/points programs strategically to destination inspiration to mastering the logistics of travel with kids. The event fills a giant hole in travel advice for families, which tends to swing from “Sleeping at your in-laws house is a great vacation” to “Fly your baby in First Class or stay home”. The speakers at FT4RL are all parents who, while having different modes and methods, share one belief: Travel with kids is not only possible, but necessary. By sharing the world with our children, we expand both their minds and our own, creating a lifetime’s worth of wonder that can come no other way. Confirmed Speakers:  Rich Kerr from Travel Hacking 101 on miles and points for 4 or more. A topic dear to his heart now that he's a family of 4!  Rich is a senior writer for The Points Guy and also is resident miles expert at TravelingDad.com.   Kenny Burrows from Miles4More on Getting Back to Nature on Miles and Points. AT FT4RL 2 Kenny demonstrated how he got PAID 00 for a year's extensive travel with a family of 4. Best mic drop I've ever seen.  Mom of 4 Toni Southam on Camp Mom- solo parent long term travel with kids. Toni just spent two months with 4 under 10 in Europe so she knows her stuff! And I won't even start about the time she hiked the Inca trail pregnant… I'm doing a session this time!  Hotel Points Alternatives- for trips where the Hyatt just isn't gonna cut it. I'll be sharing tips and tricks I use to save up to 90% on lodging all over the world.  A session from you!  I'm recruiting a number of you to speak for 5-10 minutes on a topic you know inside and out but don't want to talk about for an hour. If you have a topic idea- let me know! It could be a miles/points trick, a destination you hold near and dear, a logistics hack…every FT4RL I'm blown away by the talent in the room and want you to have your moment in the sun.  We will also have social events specific to attendees including a Friday happy hour meetup and a Saturday night dinner.  Details to come! FT4RL admission includes an invitation to the Friday happy hour and Saturday night dinner.   A VERY limited number of Friday happy hour only tickets are available but this includes entry Friday night only. Friday only tickets do NOT include any sessions.

Casualty Notification Officers provide vital care, support to Families of the fallen

By Rob McIlvaine
FMWRC Public Affairs

FORT HOOD, Texas – “I was sitting at home at 11:30 at night when I noticed a car’s lights coming down my long driveway,” David McNabb said recently at the TAPS Fort Hood Military Survivor Seminar & Good Grief Camp, where over 300 survivors shared stories at this annual event.

McNabb was remembering the night he was notified about his son’s death at his home in Terrell, Texas.

Staff Sgt. Shawn Henry McNabb, a combat flight medic with the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, lost his life in Afghanistan on Oct. 26, 2009.

A combat veteran with five overseas deployments, 24-year-old Shawn was on his first deployment in Afghanistan for only one month before he was killed. During that time, he was credited with saving the lives of two men.

“I was home alone because Ann, my wife, was staying at a friend’s apartment in Dallas near where she worked the next morning at 6:30,” McNabb said.

The van stopped outside and three Soldiers got out: a chaplain from Fort Campbell, Ky.; a Captain from Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah, Ga., where Shawn had been stationed and an intelligence officer from Shawn’s unit.

“They came up to the door and began by saying, ‘Sir, the Department of the Army…’ but I interrupted them. ‘Is he hurt really bad or is he dead?’”

“Sir, he’s dead.”

“I told them I couldn’t call Ann to tell her, so we had to go to Dallas, about an hour away. I got into their van and we made the rainy trip to the apartment complex, getting there about 1 a.m..”

Ann, a registered nurse with 33 years experience, worked in a Dallas hospital and stayed at her friend’s when she had to be at work the next morning.

“I had been there only once before. Thankfully, we spotted a security guard who went back to his office, looked up my wife’s friend and lead us to her apartment,” McNabb said.

“Then we had to tell our daughter, Heather, in Waxahachie,” McNabb said. The drive took an hour and by the time Shawn’s parents traveled the 60 miles back to their home in Terrell it was 4 a.m.
David is proud to recall how his Family were all involved in the medical field. Both his wife and daughter are registered nurses, he was a paramedic with an ambulance crew and Shawn wanted to be a physician assistant. In fact, he was scheduled to begin classes this year. In January, David begins a four-year term as the Justice of Peace and will become heavily involved with helping the kids in the two school systems in his district.

“Later that day, Chief Mark Kelsey, acting as Casualty Assistance Officer, came up to the house with a 1st Sgt. from our son’s special operations unit. The first thing Mark told us was to eat, drink and try to sleep, and to remember where we put important things.

He brought his experience and his extremely professional manner to help us get through all the things we needed to do. In short, Chief Kelsey made things flow easily for my Family by taking care of business gently and kindly,” McNabb said.

Army Chief Warrant Officer 4 Mark Kelsey, who worked in the Fort Hood Casualty Assistance Center had notified many of the Family members attending the TAPS Fort Hood Military Survivor Seminar & Good Grief Camp.

“From 2006 to July, 2010, I was mobilized as an Army Reservist to enter onto active duty as an Army Casualty Notification/Casualty Assistance Officer. I was assigned to the Fort Hood Casualty Assistance Center, under the leadership of Chief of Casualty Lee R. Price, with duty in Pantego, Texas, in the Dallas/Fort Worth area,” Kelsey said.

The Army’s goal is to have a Casualty Notification made within four hours of the Casualty Assistance Center receiving information of the Soldier’s death.

“With Fort Hood having 175 counties in its area of responsibility, it can take eight hours for us to notify someone in Amarillo, for instance. In this case, we’d try and contact the Reserve or National Guard to notify and right behind this person would be the casualty assistance officer,” Price said.

“Having me forward deployed helped them better achieve that mission goal of four hours,” Kelsey said.

At the beginning of his tour of active duty, Kelsey attended a 40-hour comprehensive training program conducted by the Fort Hood Casualty Assistance Center.

“In 2007 I attended this training again as a refresher. I also took online annual training conducted by the Casualty and Memorial Affairs Operations Center in Alexandria, Va,” Kelsey said.

A Casualty Notification/Casualty Assistance Officer is similar to a first responder who renders aid.

“I saw myself not only as the person that delivered such devastating news, but also as the first person who could help them recover from their shock and grief. Recently, one of my surviving Family members sent me a card thanking me for, ‘providing her a comfortable place to fall.’ I will forever be humbled by the kindness and love these surviving Family members have shown me,” Kelsey said.

“I once asked Chaplain Elliott, who accompanied me many times, why it is that we can do the work that we do and he responded, ‘God gives us the tools we need to do the job that he calls us to do.’ His response bolstered what I was already feeling, that I was “called” to do this work.

Last year, Mark Kelsey took leave from active duty so he could volunteer at the TAPS Fort Hood Good Grief Camp. He did it again this year after retiring from the Army.

“It was a privilege for me to have assisted so many of our surviving Family members and I thank them for the honor of being there for them when they needed help the most,” Kelsey said.

My new bike’s sibling

Even though I recently got a gently used GT cruiser to race, I decided I’d rather take pics and check out the vendors than spend the extra $ to enter a national event and lose. I was taking pics of the interesting custom jerseys that most of the teams had and one of the guys I photographed said he flew in and his bike was brought from AZ (?) to TX by someone else from his track. Believe it or not, I looked over at his bike and it looked exactly like mine, so I had him flip it over so that I could check when I got home to see if our bikes were siblings. It’s a small world after all.
