Message from Karen Coletti

Dear Sean and Family, Just a note to wish you a wonderful Coletti Reunion weekend. I wish my family and I could be there--we will be thinking of you and remembering all the fun we had each summer as kids when we got to go to Utah to see our Nonno and Nonna. Take care and God Bless! Karen Coletti

Agenda (somewhat)

Hello all-- The reunion is coming up this Saturday from 9 - 5 pm! I wanted everyone to get an idea of what will be happening. To start out, we will have some time for people to come in and get acquainted. If you did not get a chance to fill out the "get to know you" form that I emailed out, this will provide some time for you to do so.

Around 10 am, we will have some small presentations concerning genealogy and old family pictures. I invite anyone coming to participate in these presentations, because I know you all know a lot more about our family than I do!

At about 11 am, most of you should have arrived, and we will play some "getting to know you" games and have everyone introduce themselves.

This should carry over until lunch, which will start shortly before 12:00 noon.

At around 1 pm, we will walk up to the North Ogden Cemetery and tour some of the headstones that are of family interest.

1:30 or 2:00 pm, weather permitting, we will have softball and volleyball games for everyone to participate in. Individual family and group pictures will also be taken at this time.

I think that will be enough activity to carry us through the end of the day. I really encourage you to contact me if you would like to show family pictures, tell special stories, etc. I hope we have a lot of participation!

Thanks, and we will see you soon!

Another Message from Tammy Dahlstrom

Sean, Good luck with the reunion. I have working on line with the New Family Search program. I have found they have put a birth date for Maria Coletti who is Nona's Mother. But further searching, I don't think this is her Mother. If anyone has been doing the Coletti genealogy and have dates from the Coletti side I would love to get the information. My understanding is that most of the records were burned in a monastery. Your Grandfather Joseph when he was mission President I think tried to get infor and couldn't. I feel so bad every time I look at my great grandmother's name and don't even have a date for her birth. Is there anyone among your family that has the genealogy bug? I would appreciate any information that you can send me. I am so sad that I cannot attend the reunion because not only being unable to meet you, I would love to see if anyone has done anymore research. Thanks for all your hard work, Your cousin, Tammy

Message from Tammy Dahlstrom

Dear Sean, I am so sorry that I haven't responded until now. We won't be able to come due to my husband Neil's illness. He isn't able to travel for a couple of more months. I hope you have a good turnout and I would love to be there. In the past I have organized 3 Coletti Family reunions and I know how much work it is. I would love to have a copy of the cook book and will ask my sister Nena to pick one up for me.

How Many Children are Coming?

I want to get a count of how many children under 10 will be at the reunion for games / activities purposes.

Message from Lori (Coletti)

Hello, My name is Lori, I am the daughter of Ron Coletti, only son of Jim and Donna Coletti. My older brother Todd recieved an invitation to the reunion in the mail and gave me the web site address. My family lived on the dairy farm in pleasant grove. I lived in the little brick house nestled inbetween "Nono and Nona" on one side and grandma and grandpa Coletti on the other until I was eight years old. I loved seeing the pictures on the slide show of my dad as a little boy and my grandparents and great grandparents as I remembered them as a child. Thank You! Lori
