Points of interest:

There is a map in the new Riggs' Directory with many of our family's historical places. Directories are now available. They will be at the reunion or will he mailed to you upon your order. Directories are $3.00 each. We have printed a family cookbook with the recipes that you submitted to us. These are also now available for mailing or can be obtained at the reunion. Cookbooks are $8.00 each., however, if you want both the Directory and the Cookbook, the set is $10.00. Please include an additional $3.00 for each set to cover the postage if the order is to be mailed.

The Burns Museum will be open at the old grade school both days. There are many items there from family members.

On a sadder note:
It is with sincere regret that we inform you of the passing of Zoe Jensen on June 7th, 2008. You may remember her at the 75th Riggs' Reunion in her bright pink t-shirt. She was our oldest attendee at that reunion. We extend our deepest sympathy to her family. Her interment will be at the Marion Cemetery, Marion, Kansas, July 26th for those who would like to attend. Time to be announced later. Submitted by Reta Riggs Cox, 2540 Indian Hills, Plano, TX 75075
