The 2013 Vail Family Reunion was a success.!! It was a bit smaller than in past years, but Janice Cutchin, our Vice-President, organized and planned an incredible Saturday evening dinner at the Chowan Golf & Country Club! Our President, Taren Vail, designed the T-Shirts this year and our Secretary, Nan Vail, organized a tour of the 1767 Chowan County Courthouse. New officers were elected, so click on the "Officers" button above to see who they are. The minutes will be posted soon. Click here for 2013 Reunion photos. Thanks Janice! If anyone else has photos they would like posted on the website, send them to skvail@comcast.net.
