Many of us have memories of previous reunions.  These family gatherings were in conjunction with the Cahaba Valley Church's Homecoming and their dinner on the grounds.  That's why there were so many other people there we were not kin to.  Lucille Vest, Lillie Warren, Lorene Parks, and others would expect their children and grandchildren to bring their food to those concrete tables by the river every June.

Here are some memories of those reunions shared by family members:

"I remember I was always terrified of those black and orange grasshoppers that were all over the church cemetery, and that was the first/only and hopefully last outhouse I had ever seen/"

"Outhouses? ... I always worried about an unseen huge wasp nest lurking underneath the boards around the hole. OOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH"
