The youngest family member at the reunion was Delana McBride-Drayton (four months old), the matriarch is Evang. Mildred Tarte and the patriarch is Dr. Herman C. Manning. Paul Manning, Jr. entertained everyone with songs and playing his guitar. The blessing was by Evang. Mildred Tarte. Then everyone enjoyed a delicious meal prepared by Derrick Graves.
