So you think you had a busy summer? Try hosting 200+ family members for a three-day reunion. That's what Erica Daniels, project coordinator in the provost's office, did on Aug. 8-10 in Beloit.
The theme of the reunion was "Morrow Reality T.V.,” with the events of "Morrow Idol" (a spinoff of Fox’s singing competition American Idol), "Throwdown with the Morrows" (a spinoff of the cooking show Throwdown with Bobby Flay on the Food Network), "Dancing with the Morrows" (a spinoff of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars), and "Sunday Best" (a spinoff of the gospel singing competition show Sunday Best on BET).
The shindig was featured in a Beloit Daily News photo spread last week (see it‒and Erica‒here).
“After two years of planning this event, I must say that it was very entertaining and filled with fun, laughter, and most of all a great family,” Daniels said. “It was a pleasure to be able to host in Beloit. My family, the majority of which have never been to Beloit, truly enjoyed their time here in this wonderful city that I like to think of as a hidden gem. The weekend was an overall success, and I am proud that I was able to show off such a great city!”
