We sign in, get our badges, and enjoy our reception banquet. Then we get on with the real business, learning about our membership's research achievements, family Bibles, and maps we use to search for Scruggs kin.

During every reunion gathering, we visit an exhibition where we can learn hands-on about the history of our reunion city. While in Richmond, we visited a historical re-creation of "The Citie of Henricus as of 1611, the third successful English colony of the Original British Invasion." [their words, not mine].

I purchased my t-shirt at the citie gift shop. ("citie" is an archaic form of "city," which appears at the top of the rustic sign.) We toured the historical re-creation of the English fort and a Powhatan indian village. Pocahontas was a princess of the Powhatan tribe, and she was around and about in the citie then. The Powhatan villages surrounded the fort, which was on the bank of the James River. During some free time between reunion events, I spent an afternoon hiking the Buttermilk Trail along the James River. The water level was low, which made for some exciting tubing, or so it appeared to me as I stood on the sandbar enthralled by the view.
We had lots of time to visit one-on-one with cousins new and old, mostly old. We brought out our instruments and put on our tams and dancing shoes. On the last day of our gathering we had a final meeting, our association's biennial business meeting and elections. With our youthful spirits revived, we bade farewell till we meet again at the river, the Cumberland River in Nashville, for our 2024 Scruggs Family Association Reunion. See you there!
