The newly completed implement shed on the farm of David and Janette Chevalier was the location of the 2010 family reunion.

Tables decorated with sunflowers were arranged with a view of the stage.  Antiques on the stage from the Chevalier farm reminded many of days gone by.

Rides on the barrel train around the farm were a big hit with young and old.  Here, A.J. Nicholson from Melbourne Florida has everyone aboard for one of many trips.

For those who chose not to take the train or those who just wanted another trip around the farm, David Chevalier took them on a hayride.

All generations tried to find their place on the family genealogy charts that covered over half of the shed wall.

Many attending the reunion brought photo albums, collages, family history charts and family relics to share with their cousins.
