C.C. Gosa Family Reunion 2012

Greetings Family!
I’m excited to announce that plans have begun for the 2012 C.C. Family Reunion!
My name is Brian Gosa; I am the son of Richard and Phyllis Gosa (Selma, AL) and the grandson of George and Lula Bell Gosa (Gordo, AL). I am also the Reunion Coordinator for our upcoming reunion, which will be held in beautiful Birmingham, Alabama. The reunion dates are set for June 22-24 2012. I’m looking forward to working with everyone who is interested in helping – even in a small way – to make this reunion fun and memorable for all who attend.
As the Birmingham Reunion Committee continues to make preliminary plans for our 24th annual reunion, I wanted to take time to share some interesting information about Birmingham, AL.

Birmingham is the largest city in the state of Alabama, being home to over 1 million Alabamians. Founded in 1871, the area now known as Birmingham, AL was developed to become a hub for industry, with the primary areas of focus being iron and steel production and railroad transportation. Up through the 1960s, being the main industry center of the southern United States, Birmingham was, and still is commonly referred to as The Magic City and The Pittsburgh of the South. 
Birmingham is also notably linked to the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 60s. During this period, civil rights leaders like Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. came together in Birmingham to launch an organized attack on the deep south’s Jim Crow system. Comprised of numerous sit-ins, boycotts, and mass marches, the movement in Birmingham played a vital role in the desegregation of city facilities, as well as the passing of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

I urge all family members to begin making plans to attend next year’s reunion. The reunion events will begin Friday evening and go through Sunday morning; an exact schedule of events will be sent at a later date. Please update your contact information in the contact form located on this webpage. This information will be used to compile a mailing list and contact group for upcoming reunion letters and information.
The Reunion Committee will be working hard over the next several months to ensure that everyone has a great time. If you are interested in helping please let us know. We want to hear your ideas! Please feel free to duplicate copies of this letter or send addresses of other family members that we may not have. I truly hope that everyone that receives this letter will try to make it to the 2012 Reunion.

Please take time to enter your current contact information so that you can stay up to date with the latest news concerning the 24th Annual C.C. Gosa Family Reunion.
Blessings to All.
