Without MONEY Donations, these ANNUAL Southfield Reunions will NOT be as they were in the PAST! It takes at least $15,000.00 to host a Southfield Reunion. So, as you see, it has become MORE than just showing up now, as we have to pay our way through FUNDS, DONATIONS, T-Shirt Sales, etc. We ALL know how the ECONOMY is now, and it has truly hit out beloved Southfield Reunions. Now, if EACH Family Donated $10.00 per household, we would go on to have a VERY SUCCESSFUL 2 days, as the HEALTH FAIR is Friday July 8th while the Reunion is held the next day on Saturday July 9th. Please call with ANY Donations. You can Donate ANYTIME, including NOW! Please Mail ALL Donations to: SOUTHFIELD REUNION C/O ROBIN SINKLER 2480 HOWEY RD. COLUMBUS, OHIO 43211. Make CHECKS OR MONEY ORDERS PAYABLE TO SOUTHFIELD REUNION. THESE FUNDS WILL GO DIRECTLY INTO OUR ACCOUNT. Also, with the recent deaths of many of our family and friends from the 'Field, several people have asked us to inform others on Various Health Issues, and that is where the HEALTH FAIR comes in. More Donations as you can see...! So, If anyone has any questions, please feel free to call Robin Sinkler @ 614-203-4369 ....Mark

07/19/2009: 2009 SOUTHFIELD REUNION ROLLS ON!!!! Hello everybody!!! Last weekend, even though it rained, and RAINED HARD, it did NOT STOP our beloved SOUTHFIELD REUNION from GOING FORWARD!!! We are Very Proud 'Fielders, who just want to continue this fabulous event, no matter what….! I guess, the ONLY element that could have a chance, to STOP this tremendous occasion, is if we did NOT have enough FUNDS to pay for all the amenities that everyone loves and needs for this special gathering of friends, family, and loved ones. As we continue to move forward to keep this event going, and going STRONG, WE will NEED your SUPPORT! We will need $$-Donations-$$ from anybody, small or large, we will have many fund raisers, etc, to compile all the monies needed. As you all saw last weekend, even through the rain and wind, there were so many loyal and proud Southfielders, braving Mother-Nature, from the time it started, to the time it ended. It just shows the love and commitment for all of us to band together, to continue to make this happen. So, Please continue to Donate to contribute to this affair, for all of us to attend, each and EVERY YEAR:!!! With all this being said, we had ANOTHER FABULOUS TIME!!! There were people AGAIN, that I haven't seen in over 32 years!!! These are so many of the reasons, we just need to keep this VERY SPECIAL Community Gathering GOING STRONG!! All the Barbecue Aroma filling the air, All the Tents spread out showing all the Love, All the Kids playing and having fun, ALL the Entertainment, it just goes on and On and On…….then, don't forget the HEALTH FAIR event, the Day Before the Southfield Reunion….! Just wonderful!! So, please DONATE, to help to keep this running. Also, please bear with me, as I will have all the pictures edited, and web pages posted on the SouthfieldMessenger.com site within the next few weeks. We had a GREAT TIME, for all those that could attend, and for all those that couldn't, well, you MISSED a great one, BUT, you can ALWAYS look to make it NEXT year, as we do it UP, for the 10th ANNUAL SOUTHFIELD REUNION, 2010!!!.......Mark

08/30/2007: Hello everyone!! I sure hope that you had as much fun as I did this year at the Southfield Reunion. "I get people coming to me saying that they want to be a part and nobody lets them know when, where and time of the meetings" So this is the first notice. Also, people each year tell me they want T-shirts and we order T-shirts but we end up with several at the end. So, this year if you want t-shirts please let me know in advance. We will begin to take orders in January. If we don't have a response then we will only order for the committee and those who do respond. Also, we will be having a few fund raisers coming up to help raise money, PLEASE, PLEASE respond and participate. I'm looking forward to having as many of you that will attend these meeting come, so that we will continue to be the best Neighborhood Reunion in History. This year there were 3 other festivals going on at the same date & time as the Southfield Reunion. I was told by the City officials that our Reunion had more people in attendance than all three put together and they didn't get there until after 6:00pm. So, that says that we are great Neighborhood and can come together in big style with no troubles. I'm proud to be a part of such a great event and neighborhood. Keep Coming!!!! I also want to THANK EVERYBODY for the effort that was put forth with cleaning up the park. WONDERFUL JOB!!!!! we still have a little way to go with getting people to put their trash in the trash cans, but this year was the best out of the last 6 years. A dumpster will be provided for next year. The following schedule shows 3 dates for the remainder of 2007 for meetings to join in with us to plan for the 2008 Southfield Reunion.

12/02/2004 ATTENTION!! (SR) Meetings Breakdown: Robin Sinkler (Chair) notes...................................... Hello everyone. I wanted to explain to our viewers why the meetings are set at different locations for those who have concern. We are trying to accommodate everyone. We all are either from Southfield or still in Southfield, and because of that, we will be moving the meetings to different locations. Hopefully this won't be a hindrance for you to attend the meetings. For we want everyone to be able to come. This year will be a little different concerning the number of meetings that you should attend. This will help to keep everyone up to date on things happening. These meetings will be open to everyone to come and give suggestions. We are involved with the following: [Volunteering, Committee Member Fund Raisers, Set up/ Clean up, etc...] These meetings will not be limited to just these areas, as those that have come to the Reunion over the years may have ideas they'd like to see happening...! If you do come, and perhaps think you'd like to be of some kind of assitance, but later on, you decide you won't be able to, Please let me know. However, if you DO wish to be of assistance of some kind, you MUST attend the meetings and be willing to work to help put this all together. The help is especially needed the Day of the Reunion to help make sure everything is in place and runs smoothly. I stress again, if you want to be a part of the committee, or have any ideas, please attend the announced Meetings. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at 268-9503 (h) or 428-3294 (w). Thank you.

10/20/2004 Southfielder voices her appreciation for the Annual Southfield Reunion get together! Excerpts from Connie Jones ..................... "As I was able to attend the reunion this year, I would like to express what a great time I had. It was so good to see all of our old school friends and neighbors that I had not seen in awhile. To see everyone’s children, and grandchildren. (Some of us are getting pretty old!) I think that this event is so wonderful, and I would like to thank all of those that put forth the effort to keep it alive, I think the web sight is also very informative, not every community has the wonderful friends and the closeness as we Southfielders do. I never realized it until I go back to these reunions, and see and feel the love and joy of everyone shares. Once again, I thank you, and may God continue to bless each and every one of us and keep us until we see each other again....Love to all, Connie Jones" (the former Connie Wright!)
