PRESIDENT’S REPORT Dear Family Members, We hope you and your family are in good health and that you will decide that YES you will be attending our upcoming reunion August 6 – 8, 2010, in Taos, New Mexico. This is the 5th time our family will share friendships and stories since we started back in 1984. Enclosed you will find the information that you will need to take part in this exciting and historical event. Please return all information no later than July 19, 2010. Please donate homemade or any other items for our silent auction to benefit the Juan De Jesus Vigil Family Foundation Scholarships/Grants. We received 12 quilt squares commemorating the Vigil Family. It is currently being made into a quilt which will be raffled at the reunion in Taos. Even if you can’t come to the reunion, please buy a raffle ticket and help support the Vigil Scholarship fund. Check out the insert to this newsletter for additional information.

We are happy to announce recording artist and award winning author, Jon Chandler, who will perform on Saturday evening after the formal program and also on Sunday during the Picnic. You will be pleasantly surprised to hear his song entitled “The Spanish Peaks”. We look forward to seeing you in Taos!
