FC: FAMILY REUNION in ArkCity - November 2011 | TheKELLEY
1: In May of 2010, when Greg and Monica were invited out to Prescott, Arizona by JR & Bernie to watch an AMA Pro Mile motorcycle race (that JR helped promote), JR talked to Greg about having another Kelley family reunion the following year. The rest is now history. As was the tradition of the nine children of Eva Altizer Kelley, approximately fifty people with Kelley blood in them came to Arkansas City to enjoy three days of fellowship, fun, food and some “hydration”. The big news was that as the Kelleys checked in at the Regency Court motel, the management was all new and didn’t know about the last time they were there so they let them in. Then the next amazing thing is that none of us were threatened to get kicked out (almost). People become quieter and nicer as they get older. Continued on last page...

26: Great Family Memories Left: The 2nd generation. Right: The 3rd generation of Kelleys | Continued from first page: ....For the early-arrivers, on Tuesday, we all went to Montana Mike’s for dinner. I can’t remember all that were there but remember Tom & Carole Kelley bought everybody dinner. People just relaxed on Wednesday and some came to First Intermark to help with the preparations. That night a growing crowd met at the Pizza Hut and then we went to Paul & Monica’s afterwards.
27: On Thanksgiving we all met and just had a great time together. Lots of memories were shared, pictures taken and all had a good time. We all went to the roof for “target practice” to get ready for the next day. Friday morning, Mayya, Rob & Lex made us a scrumptious brunch then off to the JK Ranch (Jeff & Hilda Kelley’s) where Pat Kelley prepared a great place and plenty of guns for everybody to try out. Afterwards, we had a humongous bonfire / weenie roast thanks to Jeff and Pat. It was a fun day. We missed those that couldn’t make it, but we had so much fun, maybe we can have another Kelley FamJam soon! Note: Additional copies of this book can be ordered by going to www.mixbook.com.
