"2020 Family Reunion Cancelled Due to Covid-19"

Celebrate our Family Reunion in Atlanta, GA

July 9 – 11, 2021

 Greeting Anthony-Ellison Family and Friends,

I hope you and your families are healthy and continue to be safe at home.  Many of you have called and wanted to know the status of our 2020 Family Reunion in Atlanta, GA.  On March 22, 2020 I sent out an important update email from the Atlanta Host committee providing the latest status of our 2020 Family Reunion.

At that time, the Atlanta Host Committee had decided that if the same conditions Shelter-in-Place order concerning the COVID-19 exist on May 1, 2020, we would cancel the Family Reunion. 

Regretful, as of today, I am sad to announce that because COVID-19 conditions are not improving and out of concern for the health and safety of our families and friends the Atlanta Host Committee made the decision to cancel the 2020 Anthony-Ellison Family Reunion for this year and rescheduled for 2021.

The new dates for the Anthony-Ellison Family Reunion will be July 9,10 and 11, 2021 at the same hotel (Hilton Garden Inn Atlanta-Buckhead).  The hotel has agreed to honor the same Room Rates, Banquet Menu price, Parking price, and all other agreements in the 2020 contract and rolled everything to a new 2021 contract. 

 All 2020 Group Block for rooms were cancelled along with individual room reservations made by family members to date.  The hotel sent email room cancellations without penalty today for those of you who had made reservations. Please check your email to ensure your reservation was cancelled.

Once the Group Block for 2021 is setup in the hotel system, I will send out hotel information as soon as I receive it.  Please book your hotel reservation as soon as possible.   Since the hotel is honoring the 2020 contract rates the Family Reunion Registration fees and itinerary will remain the same for 2021.

For those of you who have already paid your 2020 Family Reunion Registration Fees we can apply them to the 2021 Reunion, or we can send you a full refund.   Please let me know which option you choose.

Once again, thank you so much for your understanding and patience.  If you have any questions, please contact:
