2010 BARR FAMILY REUNION
May 30th, 2010
Thanks to all who travelled to Missouri for our 2010 reunion this year, from as far as California! Gary and Theresa Barr were pleased that over a hundred of the Barrs, and Barr relations, were able to attend! Some of the best food in Missouri accompanied the crowd on this day, and the Kansas City weather was mild. From ages 8 months to 88 years, we were happy to see everbody there enjoying the luncheon, the games, the door prizes, and most importantly, the company of our family. Gary and Theresa Barr wanted to do this as their 50th birthday presents to each other, and the gift of family is what we wanted...

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Peggy Barr-Schroeder and Clare Nicholson, both who live local to the event, who graciously offered their thoughts, their time, and their planning talents to help us coordinate this huge undertaking. As Colorado residents, we could not have pulled it off without you. And to our pro videographers Rebecca Kopechek and Nick Kurucz, who documented the event for free, your contribution does not go unnoticed. We thank you for your efforts! You have gifted us with a true family heirloom to hand down through the generations.
Now available: Copies of the DVD documentary from the event can be ordered for a simple donation of $20, a small price for such a treasure. The editing is unbelievable, it is set to music, with commentary from attendees, antique photos, and introductions of all the individual branches of the Barr family that were with us on this day.
Whether or not you were there, we are sure you will want to order a copy for your great great great great grandchildren! Email Nick Kurucz today at firstname.lastname@example.org for ordering instructions, and be sure to order a few extra copies for Christmas presents, and to pass down to your family. You will not be disappointed. Thanks again to our organizers, and to all who participated. It really meant alot to Gary and Theresa!
