During the 2024 Guy Family Reunion two buses will leave the Whispering Woods Hotel on Thursday morning July 11, 2024 for the Brice's Crossroads Battleground Tour.
This is the battleground where Baldy Guy, George Guy, and Henry Guy fought in the Battle of Brice's Crossroads on June 10, 1864 against General Nathan Bedford Forrest and his Confederate Troops.
The tour is open to anyone who wants to attend. Each bus holds 54 people so we will need to know in advance who would like to attend. You can RSVP on the Guy Family web-site for the tour or contact me or Pamela Strayhorn by cell phone or in-box.
At this time we only have room for 108 family members. Any under age children must have an adult with them on the bus.

ATTENTION GUY FAMILY MEMBERS:
 

The dates for the 2024 Guy Family Reunion are 
July 10th-14th, 2024

 

The fees for the reunion are listed below:
 

Seniors (75 & up) $75.00 (includes t-shirt) 
 

Adults (19-74) $150.00 (includes t-shirt)
 

Children (6-18) $75.00 (includes t-shirt)
 

Infants (0-5) $25.00 (includes t-shirt)
 

Please try to get your reunion fees in by the deadline date of May 1, 2024. The Whispering Woods Hotel & Vendors have to be paid off in the month of June 2024. T-Shirt orders will be placed on June 1st in order to be back in time for the reunion.
 

Any payment received after the t-shirts are ordered 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 !!!
