The 2008 Addington Family Reunion  was held on July 25 and 26 in Blairsville GA




We had another great reunion, this year in Blairsville, Georgia.  On July 25th, the Friday night social was held in Union County Bank's community room, with sixteen Addington relatives attending. 


Saturday morning at Ivy Log Baptist Church began with registration at 9:00 a.m.  Attendees joined or renewed memberships, and visited with one another, sharing picture albums and memories.  Evelyn Everett Payne was the MC and spoke about the Dahlonega Gold Rush and how tours used to be allowed. David V. Addington then shared information about some photos and family documents he has collected. 


Wayne and Anna Gray Huffman, who'd traveled from Herndon, Virginia accepted the award for traveling the furthest. 

The oldest attendee was 93-year old Doyle Fortenberry, son of James William and Maggie R. Addington Fortenberry.  Chelsea Daniels, as the youngest there, was given a book Pudding Lane People” by Sarah Addington.  Following the meeting, everyone adjourned to the church steps for the Reunion picture.
