Over the past few months a small group of volunteers have been preparing a Ready Reunion, scheduled for August 13th, 2017. While all the details are far from confirmed, we have general information that will give you some sense of what’s being prepared for you.
This website will continue to serve as our official means of communications as we plan and coordinate our family gathering. We want you to come out, have fun, and enjoy. It’s our hope that the descendants of James and Mary Ready will share pictures, comments, celebrations, businesses, memorials, and etc.

There are two dinner options, listed below.
- Pot Luck: The first is participating in a simple “Pot Luck”. With this option, everyone attending is expected to bring a food item, whether it’s a salad, a pickle tray, potato salad, dinner rolls, cold cuts, a pasta dish, a kaiser rolls, a cheese tray, etc., etc. Or maybe you’d like to bring a dessert…..lots of desserts, but you get the idea. There’s always lots of food if everybody participates in a potluck. (Note: We’d prefer that people do not bring sandwiches). For those coming from a distance, maybe you can stop by a local grocer and bring a vegetable or fruit tray.
- BBQ: The second option is BBQ offered by Jessie Welsh. Jessie will be offering a variety of items such hot dogs, hamburgers, cold drinks, etc. They will be offered at very reasonable prices listed below.
Pulled Pork Sandwich $5
Burger with all the fixings $4
Hot dogs $2
- Please note: For the supper portion of the Reunion, Jesse Welch, the “Back Yard Gourmet”, will be providing hamburgers, hot dogs, and pulled pork and some drinks, to purchase. If you were to purchase something from the BBQ and also would like to partake of the pot luck, please bring something to contribute to the pot luck , for example : salad, dessert, veggies and dip, fruit tray, etc…..
