Lilly Family

Just found out a cool thing about the Lilly family (which I'm a part of, for those who don't know).

They hold an annual reunion that lasts three days in southern WV (as in, the southern part of West Virginia, because there is this portion of VA, the south-western portion, that also refers to their area as southern-west Virgina. It gets confusing, especially when spoken - and since I am not a particular fan of south-western VA, I'm blaming them for the mistake).

This year, the Reunion Council decided to try for the world record (Largest Family Reunion) - and we won! We will be listed in next year's Guinness Book of World Records.

So now, there will be proof that my family is one of the largest in the world - something most people from southern WV have known about for years.
