Heyward Family Reunions

Annual reunions are a long tradition with the Heyward Family Association.

The date is always the second Saturday after Easter.

The location varies from year to year. The Association generally chooses a venue that has a connection to the Heyward ancestors who lived in the South Carolina low country between Charleston and Savannah.

Reunion details are announced in the HFA newsletter and at this website about a month before the event.

Members are advised to bring

  • Appropriate clothing and weather gear
  • One dish to put on the community table – for instance: meat, salad, dessert, vegetable, your specialty, whatever strikes your fancy
  • Libation of choice
  • Sunscreen
  • Bug spray
  • Hat for shade
  • Humorous tales of interesting local/family history
  • Any Heyward item of interest or for sale
  • Association dues ($30/household)

The pictures below are from past reunions. For those who’ve never been to a Heyward reunion, they’ll give you a sense of what to expect. For current HFA members, they may bring back fond memories. Enjoy.
