HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE, ARE YOU READY for ANOTHER FABULOUS SOUTHFIELD
WELL, of course you are, but going forward, it is going to take
More Funds unfortunately. Without MONEY Donations, these ANNUAL
Southfield Reunions will NOT be as they were in the PAST! It takes
at least $15,000.00 to host a Southfield Reunion. So, as you see,
it has become MORE than just showing up now, as we have to pay our
way through FUNDS, DONATIONS, T-Shirt Sales, etc. We ALL know how
the ECONOMY is now, and it has truly hit out beloved Southfield
Reunions. Now, if EACH Family Donated $10.00
per household, we would go on to have a VERY SUCCESSFUL 2
days, as the HEALTH
FAIR is Friday July 8th while the Reunion is held the next day on
Saturday July 9th. Please call with ANY Donations. You can Donate
ANYTIME, including NOW! Please Mail ALL Donations to: SOUTHFIELD
REUNION C/O ROBIN SINKLER 2480 HOWEY RD. COLUMBUS, OHIO 43211.
Make CHECKS OR MONEY ORDERS PAYABLE
TO SOUTHFIELD REUNION. THESE FUNDS WILL GO DIRECTLY INTO
OUR ACCOUNT. Also, with the recent deaths of many of our family
and friends from the 'Field, several people have asked us to inform
others on Various Health Issues, and that is where the HEALTH FAIR
comes in. More Donations as you can see...! So, If anyone has any
questions, please feel free to call Robin Sinkler @ 614-203-4369
Further Adeu, and sorry for the long delay, but now, the 2010 SOUTHFIELD
REUNION PICTURES ARE NOW POSTED!!!!!

it did NOT STOP our beloved SOUTHFIELD REUNION from GOING FORWARD!!!
We are Very Proud 'Fielders, who just want to continue this fabulous
event, no matter what….! I guess, the ONLY element that could have
a chance, to STOP this tremendous occasion, is if we did NOT have

gathering of friends, family, and loved ones. As we continue to
move forward to keep this event going, and going STRONG, WE will
NEED your SUPPORT! We will need $$-Donations-$$

to compile all the monies needed. As you all saw last weekend, even
through the rain and wind, there were so many loyal and proud Southfielders,
braving Mother-Nature, from the time it started, to the time it
ended. It just shows the love and commitment for all of us to band
together, to continue to make this happen. So, Please continue to
Donate to contribute to this affair, for all of us to attend, each
and EVERY YEAR:!!! With all this being said, we had ANOTHER FABULOUS
TIME!!! There were people AGAIN, that I haven't seen in over 32
years!!! These are so many of the reasons, we just need to keep
this VERY SPECIAL Community Gathering GOING STRONG!! All the Barbecue
Aroma filling the air, All the Tents spread out showing all the
Love, All the Kids playing and having fun, ALL the Entertainment,

look to make it NEXT year, as we do it UP, for the 10th ANNUAL SOUTHFIELD

I sure hope that you had as much fun as I did this year at the Southfield
get people coming to me saying that they want to be a part and nobody
lets them know when, where and time of the meetings" So this
is the first notice. Also, people each year tell me they want T-shirts
and we order T-shirts but we end up with several at the end. So,
this year if you want t-shirts please let me know in advance. We
will begin to take orders in January. If we don't have a response
then we will only order for the committee and those who do respond.
Also, we will be having a few fund
raisers coming up to help raise money, PLEASE, PLEASE respond and
participate. I'm looking forward to having as many of you
that will attend these meeting come, so that we will continue to
be the best Neighborhood Reunion in History. This
year there were 3 other festivals going on at the same date & time
as the Southfield Reunion. I was told by the City officials that
our Reunion had more people in attendance than all three put together
and they didn't get there until after 6:00pm. So, that says
that we are great Neighborhood and can come together in big style
with no troubles. I'm proud to be a part of such a great event and
neighborhood. Keep Coming!!!! I also want to THANK EVERYBODY for
the effort that was put forth with cleaning up the park. WONDERFUL
JOB!!!!! we still have a little way to go with getting people to
put their trash in the trash cans, but this year was the best out
of the last 6 years. A dumpster will be provided for next year.

For without these persons, it would impossible to pull off such
a wonderful event. I want to also thank all the people that donated
money, products, stage, water, hot dogs, buns etc.. to help make
this a success. To all the entertainment, I first want to say "I
apologize for the scheduling of your time". There were a lot of
problems that day that didn't allow for a smooth run. Safety
First Band I want to I apologize to you especially, because
you all were there most of the day and your time was cut very very
short while still on duty and volunteering your time. I will make
this up in some way. To all the people that came, thank you again,
because our estimation says we reached an all time high of about
people that came in and out for the day. YES!!!!
Unfortunately there were some problems later in the day that caused
some issues to arise. However, that has not put a damper on our
day. Hopefully the family of those individuals will keep them away
or talk with them to prevent it again. So, see you all AGAIN on
July 8, 2006........! Robin

|12/02/2004 ATTENTION!! (SR) Meetings
Robin Sinkler (Chair) notes......................................
Hello everyone. I wanted to explain to our
viewers why the meetings are set at different locations for those
who have concern. We are trying to accommodate everyone. We all
are either from Southfield or still in Southfield, and because of
that, we will be moving the meetings to different locations. Hopefully
this won't be a hindrance for you to attend the meetings. For we
want everyone to be able to come. This year will be a little different
concerning the number of meetings that you should attend. This will
help to keep everyone up to date on things happening. These meetings
will be open to everyone to come and give suggestions. We are involved
with the following: [Volunteering, Committee
Member Fund Raisers, Set up/ Clean up, etc...] These meetings
will not be limited to just these areas, as those that have come
to the Reunion over the years may have ideas they'd like to see
happening...! If you do come, and perhaps think you'd like to be
of some kind of assitance, but later on, you decide you won't be
able to, Please let me know. However, if you DO wish to be of assistance
of some kind, you MUST attend the meetings and be willing to work
to help put this all together. The help is especially needed the
Day of the Reunion
to help make sure everything is in place and runs smoothly. I stress
again, if you want to be a part of the committee, or have any ideas,
please attend the announced Meetings. If you have any questions
please feel free to contact me at 268-9503
(h) or 428-3294 (w). Thank you.

|10/20/2004 Southfielder voices her appreciation
for the Annual Southfield Reunion get together! Excerpts from
Connie Jones .....................
"As I was able to attend the reunion this
year, I would like to express what a great time I had. It was so
good to see all of our old school friends and neighbors that I had
not seen in awhile. To see everyone’s children, and grandchildren.
(Some of us are getting pretty old!)
I think that this event is so wonderful, and I would like to thank
all of those that put forth the effort to keep it alive, I think
the web sight is also very informative, not every community has
the wonderful friends and the closeness as we Southfielders do.
I never realized it until I go back to these reunions, and see and
feel the love and joy of everyone shares. Once again, I thank you,
and may God continue to bless each and every one of us and keep
us until we see each other again....Love to all, Connie Jones"
(the former Connie Wright!)
If ANY viewers see ANY "inapproriate" wording placed on ANY sent-in
Yearbook Picture, please email me (with

their Yearbooks to be scanned in for the website, there are times
when the wording on somebody just aint too good, if ya know what
I mean...! So, I go ahead and 'try' to Proof-Read 'em as best as
I can and as Fast as I can. Unfortunately, I can't catch 'em all....!

|Viewer Tagalong asks: Where are
Yearbooks from 1976, 1977, 1978, etc..? My
reply: I now need additional Yearbooks to 'borrow' from someone
because I've used up all my Yearbooks. Also, when I do receive other
people's Yearbooks, I will 'RANDOMLY' select pictures and any 'personal'
ones you'd wish, but unfortunately, NOT all of them due to a heavier
workload and most IMPORTANTLY, the SPACE/STORAGE restrictions
and Requirements that exist on the Server that Hosts my website.
