"Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success." The Spauldings Family Reunion 2008 DVD made its debut at the 2008 Reunion Banquet/Dance. It was created by the banquet co-chairperson, Dr. Cecily Spaulding. The video depicts family photos interspersed with scenes from Columbus and Bladen Counties, North Carolina and is set to the music of the Negro National Anthem, Lift Evry Voice and Sing. As the song inspires us to remember our rich past, remain true to our God and face the future with hope, may we as a family, always honor our history, celebrate our present accomplishments and march boldly into the future!
