The Edies

A Family Reunion

In 1997, a small group of Edie descendants decided it was time to organise a Re-union of the far-flung clan in New Zealand.

It was held in Dunedin, during a January weekend, with a trip to Edievale on the Saturday.

Russell Edie, MC, & one of the Organising Committee

After Registering on the Friday evening, there was an opportunity for family to meet, catch up, & chat

Alan Edie, Itinerary co-ordinator & one of the Organising Committee

On the Saturday we moved into Central Otago

stopping first at the Museum in Lawrence

For many it was welcome chance to stretch their legs

and wait for others for whom it was a "comfort stop"

Various Edie family members spent time living in Lawrence

especially while completing part of their schooling

Next it was onto Edievale, now just a remnant of the original village

The highpoint of the Saturday

was at the Cemetary at Crookston

where a Service

was held

to re-Dedicate the Family Memorial

and to add to it a plaque commemorating the Re-union

Then it was time for lunch, at a local community Hall

Sunday morning was family group photos

and more family group photos

And when it was all over, the Organising Committee breathed a sigh of relief, and went out for dinner!
