Easy Steps for Planning a Family Reunion in 2020!

Do you have extended family that you haven't connected within a long time? Have you thought about planning a family reunion? Fort Leonard Wood, Mo is a great location to host your next family reunion due to our central location in the United States and easy access along Interstate 44. Does planning a reunion sound fun but you're not sure where to start? Today, Fort Wood Hotels has a step by step solution for planning a family reunion in 2020! 

Step 1: Set a Date and Find Help 

The first step to planning a family reunion is picking a date. It's a good idea to reach out to a few family members and present them with the idea of having a family reunion and get some feedback on interest and possible dates. Social media is a great place to do this! You likely have most of your extended family on Facebook but you may not have their phone numbers. Create a private group and start inviting people to the page. You can start a discussion in the group and decide on a date that works best for the majority of people. By creating a private Facebook page, you can grant people permission to invite other family members you may have forgotten about, post itineraries, discuss ideas, and most importantly get a headcount of how many people you are expecting. 

During this process, this is the time to recruit some help! You won't want to tackle the entire reunion on your own. Ask a few family members to help and assign them specific tasks like food, activities, lodging, hiring a photographer, etc. 

Step Two: Book Your Location 

Once you lock down a date, you'll want to book your location as soon as possible. The Comfort Inn, Fairfield Inn, and Hampton Inn are perfect locations for groups staying in and around Fort Leonard Wood, Saint Robert, and Waynesville. Our convenient easy access location is also a great fit for those traveling along Interstate 44. With a warm welcome reception and group-friendly amenities, we are here to serve! 

Step Three: Plan the Main Event 

If you've planned for an entire weekend for the reunion, you will want to make sure you have the main event planned. The Hampton Inn is the perfect location for your reunion! Ensuring our guests are happy and that every detail of their event taken care of is paramount to us here at the Hampton Inn in Saint Robert. We maintain high standards of customer care. We can help you find catering, a Dj, and even a photographer. Give us a call at 573-336-3355 and we'd love to help you plan your family reunion. 

Step Four: Plan Activites 

Hosting your family reunion in Fort Leonard Wood is the perfect location because there is plenty to keep the family busy while you're in town. Consider putting together a few activities and offering options for people to participate. Not everyone has to do the same activities, offer a few suggestions and help coordinate directions, pricing, etc. Below are just a few fun things to do in and around Fort Leonard Wood! 
  • Route 66 Courthouse Museum
