Local Chatter

  • On 04-30-2022, the committee hosted a class on how to make tamales. We are happy to report that it was a huge success and people are still calling in, asking if we are still taking orders. Maybe next time, we will advertise earlier to spread the word better. We raised over $500 in orders and only spent 1/2 on the ingredients. What a win for our 1st fundraiser! GO RANGELS!!!

  • On 11-07-2021, the committee had a meeting at Janet Rangel's house. Minutes were read and then the discussion began on what is needed and could be done for the reunion and future reunions. We discussed how an Elder or designated member of each "clan" (for a better lack of word) could speak at the reunion and tell the news we have not heard since our last reunion in 2019. We thought about several ways we could preserve our families' history. And last we discussed an Event gathering - making tamales with a Rangel Elder. The next meeting is set for March 13, 2022.

  • On 10-03-2021, a group of individuals came together at the Village Inn on Elmore Ave. The minutes were read, and then many great ideas were laid out on the table. Our Venue was locked in solid for 17 Jul 2022. That day might be a little long, but will be a lot of fun for all those that attend.

  • Committee heads decided on two places for the reunion and it is now set for Sunday, July 17, 2022. Plan your trip now ;-) The next Reunion meeting will be on 11-07-2021 at Janet Rangel's home from 2 pm to 4 pm and we still need more family members to help out for our next reunion. We need to be the "early bird catching the worm".

  • Taña Williamson is asking for a little help from the Rangel family members. There will be a meeting on Sunday, 10-03-2021 from 2 pm to 4 pm at the Village Inn on Elmore in Davenport. Please come one, come all. 

  • On 08-15-2021, Chris DeCrane and Taña Williamson met up to discuss the upcoming reunion plans. This year, Taña will lead, giving Chris a breather.  The main discussion was where to hold the reunion.
