My in-laws, Chuck and Shirley Schultz will be celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary in August. Such an occasion deserves a celebration and their children decided to have a party. While I had planned to attend, I didn't think it was going to be a 'project'.
I was wrong....
I mentioned to Chuck that it would be nice if we set up an area where people could be 'interviewed' and tell a story, memory, etc about his parents. We could record them (video preferred) and then edit it and make a nice dvd. He mentioned to his brother Billy, who was tasked with sending out the invitations. I told Chuck I could do a short write up that could be included in the invitation so people would have a chance to think of the story.
Today I found out I'm now in charge of the invitations! So, tomorrow it is off to Office Depot to find stationary and envelopes. Then I'll be surfing various sites for an appropriate template for the invitations.
Just another day in the life of a genealogist.... Oh, and while I'm at Office Depot I think I'll pick up name tags, since I can't quite place a few of the people on the guest list.
I'll keep you posted!
