        Family reunion for descendants of Jefferson Davis Hairgrove and Mary Tempie Corley Hairgrove.  This year our covered-dish get-together has been set for Saturday, June 3rd, 2006.  The location will be in the facilities of the First Assembly of God Church in Lufkin, TX.  If you need directions, please contact Sheryl Gallier at or Mary Ann Foster at .  The facilities will accommodate our family with plenty of tables and chairs.  There is a kitchen with a commercial stove so we will be able to heat dishes as needed. You will not need to bring paper plates, cutlery, cups, napkins or ice. These will be provided along with cold drinks, tea and coffee.  Lois Corry is the oldest living relative of Jefferson Davis and Mary Tempie Hairgrove, being their granddaughter.  She will be celebrating her 93rd birthday on May 31st, 2006, and we plan to observe her birthday during our reunion by having a special birthday cake.  No gifts are requested, but we would appreciate birthday cards for her.  Hope to see y'all there!
