our celebration.

Dear Cooley-Howze Family,

We welcome you to the official page for the 2018 Cooley-Howze Family Reunion! Please save the dates of June 21-24, 2018! As we are currently in the planning process for the 2018 Cooley-Howze Family Reunion, there are a number of festivities and fun events planned for the family to engage in while we all enjoy the beautiful scenery and comforts of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

As we kick off this sensational weekend, let us remember the meaning of family values, traditions, and the reason for family gatherings so that we may be able to take this time to reflect on our loved ones that have passed, learn a little more about our history, and meet or reconnect with family that are both far and near!

So, as a family, it is our duty to become reunited and celebrate our family's legacy so that we may continue to pass this tradition on for future generations. This year we are focusing on reuniting the descendants of Dudley Howze, Sr. and Bertha Cooley (maiden name)...as well as their relatives. All in all, this long-overdue reunion will be a great one...

The reunion will start on Thursday with hotel check-ins as we allow distant relatives time to get comfortable and settled into their hotels before commencing with the Meet & Greet that evening. Friday afternoon we will convene with a lakeside family picnic. Food, card games, a bounce house, etc. are some of the activities that will be included in this full afternoon of fun and memorable times. Wait---it doesn't stop there! Saturday evening will conclude with our formal all-white party. Come dressed to impress in your all-white attire as we dine and party the night away to the sounds of a live dj.  The wrapping up of this memorable weekend will end on Sunday morning after church service and hotel check-out. In the midst of all of the fun, family-filled events, don't forget to check out the amenities of the Gulf Coast which include, but is not limited to, a multitude of restaurants, casinos, shopping centers, and a 26-mile long white sand beach.

If you should have any questions, please contact Jai Howze in regards to transportation, ticket sales, and all general information; Shuvonna Perry in regards to becoming a part of this year's planning committee and/or welcoming committee; Shunda André in regards to accommodations, website questions, and t-shirt sales; Teala Barnes or Sharonda Mcinnis in regards to our itinerary and specific event information.

We are looking forward to seeing you all there!!!
