I commend you for wanting each attendee at the reunion to feel valued. However, this can be a daunting task—especially for large reunions. So I suggest that you develop group activities to assist in reaching your goal, several will be needed to affirm as many family members as possible. Below are some suggestions:

At every reunion, we want to be sure to embrace every family member so that everyone feels included and important. I’m not sure we make that mark every time, and wanted to know what’s a good way to ensure every reunion attendee feels that they matter and are loved.
Set up a Love Connection Committee whose purpose/goal will be to have a real conversation with everyone at the Reunion. They will check to see how everyone’s doing; how the reunion is going for them; and whether there are any relatives they don't know that they'd like to be introduced to. Their job will be to spot folks who may be sitting alone or who are only minimally engaged in reunion activities and, introduce them to family they don't know; explain how they're related; and get them involved in activities, etc.
