Upcoming HFA Meetings

Typically our HFA Annual Meetings occur some time in the late summer to early fall for that year. For those who do not live near the HFA Meeting site for that year, we typically stay in a convenient, nearby inn, motel, or hotel for lodging, business, and banquet.

We usually begin our 2 1/2 day meeting with some type of evening 'meet & greet' for newcomers as well as veteran members. Activities this first evening are informal, usually involving the itinerary for the meeting’s outings, collection of fees for optional tours and/or activities, and planning for ‘on your own’ meals, etc., for the next two days.

On our middle day we usually have one, or several, tours of the local points of interest set up for members to participate in. Some tours are a half-day, some last most of the day. Friday evening dining is ‘on you own.’

Our official Business Meeting is usually held in the late morning on the last day. When our morning meeting is done, you are ‘on your own’ for lunch and afternoon activities. On the evening of the last day, we enjoy a dinner banquet together. Ocassionaly there may entertainment: some years we’ve had storytellers regaling us with local folklore, some years we have a more formal presentation of local history or other points of interest, some years we’ve had live music for listening, other years we’ve had live music for dancing, and sometimes we just sit around and talk. It’s a nice way to end our brief Higdon Family get-together.

Of course this is a general overview of our HFA Annual Meetings. Details may change due to where in general we are meeting, small towns, large cities, etc., and where specifically we are meeting in terms of inns, motels, or hotels.

Due to the CoVID19 pandemic, our Higdon Family Association’s September, 2020 Annual Business Meeting to be held in Bardstown, KY, will be postponed to September, 2021. Of course, that will depend on how the pandemic plays out over the next year and a half. Keep checking here for intermediate updates. To get a preview of the 2021 HFA Annual Meeting, click here.
