Welcome to Cocoa from the Jackson Crew


Brandon Family Affair Reunion

2019 Reunion Agenda/Itinerary

Viera/Cocoa, Florida

July 4 – 7, 2019


As the years have gone by, we’ve have lost many of our loved ones. We miss them dearly and will forever keep them in our hearts and memories.  We have also had many additions to the family. So, besides reconnecting with long-lost cousins, aunts, uncles or any family members we haven’t kept in touch with over the years, this reunion will provide new or younger family member an opportunity to meet relatives and learn about their heritage.  We can’t have a reunion without the family. So let’s do this for Great Grandma Bert, Grandma Nellie, Aunt Johnnie Bell and Aunt Lois.
