Greetings Family!

We would like to update you on the 51st Annual ZC Martin Family Reunion!! We will count our blessings
and reflect on our “Deep Roots” while celebrating and educating our “Awesome Off springs”.

This will be the LAST of the memos you will receive regarding the family reunion. All other updates will be
posted on the website. The website address is www.ZCMartinFamily.com. Again, it’s imperative that we
as a family, from the oldest to the youngest, move into the Digital Age!! 

REUNION FEES: After much deliberation, we are now able to publish what we think is a
reasonable amount to request to implement the 51st ZC Martin Family Reunion. Cost will be $110
for Adults and $80 for children. Costs for the reunion, which include Thursday & Friday
gatherings; Family tour, Dinner Cruise (Saturday), and possibly a T-shirt for each is due by 15
July 2011. Payments should be sent to the Family Comptroller:
                             AUDREY JACKSON LUSTER
                             Martin Family Reunion Comptroller

                             Belleville IL 62223

Due to the high cost area and the reservation of the Spirit of DC Dinner Cruise, ALL FEES MUST
BE PAID IN ADVANCE, again no later than 15 July 2011!! There will be NO registration or
collection of fess on the ship or at the door!! We are excited about making this a memorable event
as we celebrate and cherish our ”Roots” and nurture our “Fruits” together as a family.
