Greeting Lott Family, I am sorry about the long delay but this year has been very rocky for me. I am back and ready to kick this 2014 reunion off. Gulfport, Mississippi here we come. The reunion will be the weekend of July 25-27, 2014. I plans to have your first letter out by the end of August. So, if you are ready for some fun in the sun, some casino action, miniature golf and for the kids to play in the water park then this is the reunion to attend. I hope everyone is having a great year and hope to see you in July 2014.
