ATTENTION GUY FAMILY MEMBERS:
 

The dates for the 2022 Guy Family Reunion are 
July 6th-10th, 2022

 

The fees for the reunion are listed below:
 

Seniors (75 & up) $65.00 (includes t-shirt) 
 

Adults (18-74) $130.00 (includes t-shirt)
 

Children (4-17) $65.00 (includes t-shirt)
 

Infants (0-3) $10.00 (includes t-shirt)
 

Please try to get your reunion fees in by the deadline date of May 31, 2022. The Whispering Woods Hotel & Vendors have to be paid off in the month of June 2022. T-Shirt orders will be placed on June 1st in order to be back in time for the reunion.
 

Any payment received after the deadline will not include a t-shirt and might be returned to that person in the mail. In past reunions we have had anywhere from 80 to 90 family members sending in payments 2 weeks before the reunion.
 

This causes problems with the hotel and vendors because we have to keep changing and adding people after we have turned in our projected numbers.
 

Any questions please contact me Darin Leake Sr. @ 901-283-1177 & Pamela Strayhorn @ 901-210-8393

 Bearing The Load

As a bear ventures through unknown territory, he is marking the way for many others to follow.  Because he took steps in a different direction, a new path was created for future bears who will use that same trail for generations, placing their feet in the exact same spot every time they walk the course. Their adventurous vision has created a remarkable path that will be traveled for years to come.

Thanks to our Guy Family Ancestors for being Trailblazers !!!

Gregory Guy
Dear Family,
I have been diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease. As a result, my kidneys failed and I was placed on dialysis in January 2019. Due to unanticipated complications, associated with the treatments, I need to have a kidney transplant as soon as possible. I am reaching out asking if anyone would consider donating a kidney. If you are gracious enough to be tested for compatibility, please contact me. I have all the information you will need. I live outside of Atlanta and am working through Emory Hospital in Atlanta. 
 
Thank You for your consideration,
Greg Guy
