Reconnect, Reafirm And Rejoice In Fort Bragg Communities

Let Us Help You Plan Your Perfect 2015 Family Reunion

It's not too early to start planning your 2015 reunion.  Consider holding your family reunion in Fort Bragg Communities of Cumberland County - a location where you can reconnect, reaffirm and rejoice in your family connections.   Here are 5 reasons to choose Fort Bragg Communities in 2015:

  • Fayetteville/Cumberland County offers lots of natural spaces for your special event.  In late 2013, the state of North Carolina opened Carvers Creek State Park in Spring Lake. This park offers beautiful areas for picnics and events. While there, your family can tour Long Valley Farm, the Rockefeller estate on the grounds. In addition to Carvers Falls, the region offers many other parks with large picnic pavilions and amenities such as an 18-hole disc golf course, nature trails, boat rentals, football, soccer and baseball fields, tennis courts and playgrounds. 
  • The community offers venues that engage and enlighten family ties and traditions. The vast majority are free.  Two are below.  More:  Reconnect Itinerary   The congregation of Evans Metropolitan AME Zion Church was founded by Henry Evans, a black shoemaker and Methodist preacher in 1801.  For many years, Evans preached to both blacks and whites. Sandhills Family Heritage Association offers tours that allow visitors to be immersed in a one-of-a kind Southern and rural African-American cultural experience as told by the descendants of slaves and local community storytellers. 

  • In America's Hometown, your family can explore the contributions of our military heroes from the Revolutionary War era to today.  Consider a group visit to the Airborne & Special Operations Museum and NC Veterans Park in downtown Fayetteville.   Visit the grave of Isaac Hammond, an African-American fifer who served with the Fayetteville Independent Light Infantry during the Revolutionary War.  Travel the Patriots Past & Present Cultural Heritage Trail, which highlights sites that explore the community's military,  past and present.
