The 95th Mason-Hayes family reunion will be held on Aug. 25 in Deming Park. A basket lunch is planned for noon at the Ute Shelter, located on the curve near the park exit. Those attending are asked to bring a covered dish and their own drinks. Meat will be furnished.
Several members are doing genealogical research and are willing to share information. Perry Mason and Rebecca Hayes were wed in March 1875 in Wabash Township, Clark County, Ill. From that union, 13 children were born: Nora Mason-Schaffer, Mary Mason-Lee, Linzy, Matilda Mason-Waller, Edna Mason-Travioli, William, Charles, Herbert, Nellie Mason-Barnes, Maudie Mason, Hazel Mason-Heather, Thomas and Elmer.
Any family member is welcome to visit in the afternoon if unable to make it for the lunch.
The 65th annual Edington Reunion is today at Twin Lakes in Paris, Ill. The basket carry-in meal will begin at 1 p.m. EDT. Drinks and table service will be provided.
