TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR THE FUNDERBURK FAMILY REUNION, AND TO CONGRATULATE THE FAMILY MEMBERS UPON THE OCCASION OF THE THEIR THIRTIETH ANNUAL REUNION.
Whereas, in a time when mobility and displacement from family roots make those relationships more difficult to sustain, the South Carolina House of Representatives takes great pleasure in commending the efforts of the Funderburk Family Reunion to maintain family identity and fellowship as they reunite on August 15, 2010; and
Whereas, in 1980, Dinah Tillman Funderburk, wife of Reverend Early Funderburk, Sr., labored to establish the annual reunion with the assistance of her daughter, Helena Funderburk as president, Mable Powe-Scott as vice president, Margaret Ann Cue-Tate as secretary, and Sarah F. and George Bridges as advisors; and
Whereas, the purpose of establishing the Funderburk Family Reunions was to build strong family ties, to nurture wholesome relationships and spiritual growth, to fellowship, and to learn about their family's legacy; and
Whereas, their ancestors trace back to the late 1800s in Cheraw with Thomas Funderburk, a carpenter, farmer, and brick mason, and his wife Charity Funderburk, a homemaker and midwife; and
Whereas, together they reared thirteen children who produced one hundred three grandchildren, and the reunions now serve to connect past generations with the present to enable the younger generations to understand the struggles of their forebearers so that they will not lose their way along life's journey; and
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives are grateful for the spiritual and physical legacy of the Funderburk family members and wish them much happiness as they experience the benefits of their thirtieth family reunion. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, recognize and honor the Funderburk Family Reunion, and congratulate the family members upon the occasion of their thirtieth annual reunion.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be provided to Evonne B. Pegues, president of the Funderburk Family Reunion.
