FORT WAYNE—The Mollison Family Reunion got underway on Wednesday, July 3 at the Pint & Slice restaurant in downtown Fort Wayne. Attending the Meet & Greet were the children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and niece of Charlie and Elnora Mollison. Lovlee Johnson, the daughter of Margaret Mollison Gleason, along with her son and grandson were there as well as Danny Mollison, the son of Joseph Mollison.

The Meet & Greet was followed by a July 4 celebration at the home of Bobby and Connie Mollison Green. All in attendance had a wonderful time, particularly the young cousins—some of them meeting for the first time. Then on Friday at the old Sears Pavilion, a Memorial Service was held for members of the family who transitioned. Those included Joseph Mollison, Margaret Mollison and, most recently, Sandra Craig Ridley. These loved ones were honored so that the young would know and remember their family.

Finally a family group photo was taken followed by a magnificent mausical performance featuring Larry Mollison and four of Charlie and Elmora’s great grandchildren. The Mollison planned and organized by Audrea Bell with the help of Connie and Bobby Green and many others who contributed their time and service to the success of the reunion.
