On Sunday, Aug. 24, descendants, extended family and friends of the Harold and Lucy (Dickey) Moody Family gathered at the Gesner Park in Monroe for a family reunion. The last organized reunion for them was held in 1986, so family dynamics have changed tremendously. The oldest family member present was 81 year old Leon Moody, the youngest child of Harold and Lucy Moody, from Monroe. The youngest was 10 weeks old Aiden Ali, son of Dexter and Amanda (Downs) Ali from Florida. Dale (Leon’s nephew) and Neva Moody are Aiden’s great-grandparents.

It was a gorgeous day and there were over 100 family members and friends who came from Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Florida, and possibly some states in between. A big thank you goes out to the Monroe Lions Club for generously donating their tables, time, and barbeque pit to cook chicken, burgers and hot dogs for this special day.
