What is happening with Breakfast?

*It was decided at the meeting after church last year that we would be having breakfast at the pavilion on Friday, Saturday & Sunday morning.  The young adults in the family will be organizing breakfast on Friday, Saturday & Sunday but they will need some help preparing it, so everyone is encouraged to be up at the pavilion at 7:30 on Friday and 7am on Saturday & Sunday morning to have fun cooking together! For more information, see the meal information post

Will there be lines on both sides of the tables for meals?

Yes! That is such a good idea. If you see someone setting food tables up against a wall, explain to them that we’re not doing that anymore. There’s no reason it should take 30 minutes to go through a line.

What should I wear for the family picture?

We will be using the same colored t-shirts again this year, so dust off your shirts!  However, we will not be standing in family groups….be prepared to move if you form up in color sections again.

Did you get my reservation information?

Check the lodging page first.  Your name should be after the room you want if it was reserved for you.  If you do not see your name on a room within 24 hours, I probably did not get it and you should contact me again at either 636.485.1369 or or leave a comment on the lodging page.

What time can I check in on Thursday?

You can show up any time on Thursday, but you can’t check into your room until around 3:00 pm

What time do I need to check out on Sunday?

Check out on Sunday is at 10:45 am (church is at 11:00am).  Be sure to get your bill from Christina before you check out.

What should I do with all the pictures I took at the family reunion?

Upload your pictures to and “tag” them with “sommererfamilywebsite” to have them pull into the family website home page. Or you can email them to my brother and he may post them on the family website : or you can e-mail them to me and I may include them in my 2013 scrap book:

How much food should I bring to the reunion?

Basically, for every potluck meal you should bring enough to feed your family. It’s okay to just bring your world famous pasta salad, but you should bring enough so that everyone in your family would be full if that’s all they eat. You can, of course, bring more than one thing. In that case you would not have to bring as much of each. For more information, see the meal information post.

When is the Softball Game? Talent Show? Sunday Service? 

We have a schedule page this year that has that information. If we’re really on the ball, we’ll also have the schedule up at the reunion.

Will the Schedule be accurate? 

No. Sommerers are really not much for schedules. Lets just say that it will be as accurate as possible.
