2012 WNPJ Family Reunion/Registration
Welcome to our website

2012 WNPJ Reunion serviced 300 plus Atlanta (Jonesboro/Stockbridge/Riverdale), GA.

Since 1978 the WNPJ Reunion has been held in many states.  We have been as far North on the East Coast as Maine, as far South as Florida, and as far West as California in 2010.  In 2012 the reunion was held in Atlanta, Georgia “Hotlanta” hosted by Arlivia “Williams” Staples, Ophelia “Button” Staples, DaWayne “Squallie” and Quantri Staples, Shaniqua “Niki” Kirkland, Lamont Lancaster and newly introduced family members from the Williams John and Yvonne Debra McCartney, and our families.

The Atlanta family committee began planning as soon as the torch was passed in 2010.  We knew that we had a great challenge before us.  We began to research locations that could house a large number, anticipating that 2012 would be a large turnout.   Some places were adequate The Atlanta International Beach home of the 19xx Olympics Volley Ball Tournament.  Others were very close quarters, never the less we as a Committee aimed to please.  Menus (enough food to fill everyone’s belly) had to be chosen. Tee shirts color selection, bright green, we wanted WNPJ to be recognized by anyone that saw us and orders were placed 300+ shirts, Hotels reserved to accommodate an anticipated 250 people.  A DJ for the weekend and much, much more… 

We secured entertainment for the children face painting, clown, games…  As well as door prizes, auctions, raffles for the adults.  One of the highlights of the reunion was handmade Afghans, some raffled off, some given away as prizes they were made by Arlivia “Williams” Staples.  The other highlight was all the senior ladies received a fresh cut flower “give them their flowers while they are live”.

There is no place I would rather be than in the house of the Lord.  On Sunday, the reunion weekend concluded with the family estimated 75 attending church Fountain of Faith Missionary Baptist Church in Riverdale, GA where the Staples families worship.  We were blessed by a selection of song by the Late Chester Norris’ Jr. daughters.  For those that had to travel you we were with you in love and prayer.

Prior to the conclusion of each Reunion the next destination is chosen.  William Watt and Karen Askew accepted for 2014 to be held in Philadelphia, PA.

We’ll see you in Phili!

2012 Reunion - Atlanta, GA

2012 Reunion - Atlanta, GA
Watch your mailboxes for the January newsletter/2012 reunion registration .

The time is getting near.  The final planning is being made for you to enjoy the most anticipated
Reunion of the century; The Williams, Norris, Padgett, Jennings Family Reunion.  We believe it will be one that you don’t want to miss.  It will be held in Atlanta, GA on July 6th – 8th of 2012. 

There is a great itinerary in place and plenty of options for you to enjoy.  You should make your vacation plans accordingly, so remember, you will be in Atlanta, GA.

Fill out the registration completely.  All information will be used to update family tree and mailing list. We are asking that you send your paid registration in way before the deadline.  It will help the committee in preparing.

The registration has all of the hotel information.  It is important to make sure you reserve your hotel rooms ASAP because spots will be going fast. Your credit card will not be charged up-front for the room, but you do need to reserve it in order to hold your room.

For those who have Internet access, the committee will be updating you periodically on the WNPJ website.  An additional newsletter will be sent

out in June providing you last minute information about the reunion.

There will be a very important family meeting at 6-7 pm on Saturday prior to the family banquet.  It is our family’s election of officers.  Please make your most loyal effort in attending, as we will be going over bylaws as well. 

The family wishes to extend to you Church Service on Sunday morning.  Let’s make every effort to share together the anointed spirit of GOD.

Finally, if you have any questions, feel free to contact any reunion committee member or send an email to: wnpj2012familyaffair@hotmail.com
