Presha-Eudell Family Reunion (General Registration)
Event on 2017-07-28 15:00:00
Greetings Family & Friends, Attendees of the Presha-Eudell Family Reunion are required to register prior June 24. Please keep in mind that registration fees have been set at the absolute lowest rate. Displayed in the schedule below, you can see that the fees will increase after May 26.   January-May 26 Adult (24 and older): Young Adult (18-22 years old): Teenager (12-17 years old): Child (4-12 years old): Infant/Toddler (1 month to 3 years old): FREE   May 27-June 23 Adult (24 and older): 4 Young Adult (18-22 years old): Teenager (12-17 years old): Child (4-12 years old): Infant/Toddler (1 month to 3 years old): FREE   What do my registration fees include? For the Dallas family reunion, your registration includes the family dinner, transportation to the family dinner your t-shirt, and souvenirs.    Are refunds available? Refunds will ONLY be issued should the family reunion be cancelled or if there is a situation (act of God) that prevents the attendee(s) from being able to attend.   Why are the registration rates subject to an increase over time? At the Vegas family reunion (2015) it was decided that rates for the Dallas reunion would not increase. In the past, many family members have stated that they were unable to attend due to the cost. For the simple fact that we want everyone to attend, we've researched venues and calculated the absolute lowest rates possible without this having to be a financial burden to anyone. Additional seed money raised at the Vegas reunion will be used to help offset some of the costs. Why is there a June 23, 2017 deadline to register? Final headcounts need to be provided in advance to the venues and any services we plan to use throughout the weekend. Registering late can is not only costly for you, but also for the organizer of the family reunion. This often leads to someone being generous enough to pick up the cost, cutting an activity, or dipping into seed money that has been set aside for something else. Most vendors will charge extra for making changes at the last minute. To ensure we are on-time and recieve the best of service we are providing them with the information they need sooner than later. If you are having trouble meeting this deadline, please contact the family reunion organizer (Jennifer Edge) as soon as possible. Why is there a registration fees and activity fees? For this reunion we are doing this a little different! Based on observation and feedback from the previous two reunions, there wasnt a strong agenda with available activities for everyone, plus not everyone wants to do the same things as everyone else. Registration fees will cover the fees associated for an individuals to attend and partake in the some of the basic activities. Activity fees will cover any extra activities in addition to (optional) the basic activities covered in the family reunion registration fees. Although the family reunion is about bringing us all together to learn our family heritage and create connections, everyone has different circumstances and may have interest to do more kid friendly activities, shop till they drop, or just want enjoy the big city night life. In the past the family reunion consisted of a family meet and greet (Friday), family banquet (Saturday), and church services (Sunday). With the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex being so big and offering a variety of things for everyone of all ages to do, it was decided that making things a la carte provided people with an agenda and options that are flexiable and affordable. Do I have to attend/participate in activities that have additional costs? No. That's the great thing about having the registration fees and activity fees seperate. In the past, everyone had to partake in the same activities. With there being so much to do in the area no one is obligated to participate in the additional activities. It is absolutly fine you are just coming to see everyone, get away for a little awhile, rest and relax. Remember, this is about enjoying yourself! Will I be responsible for paying for my meal at the family dinner? No. The cost of your meal for the family dinner is deducted from the registration fees. You will only be responsbile for paying for alcoholic beverages should you order anything from the bar. Can someone who is a non-family member attend? Yes. Friends of family membered are welcome to attend and will need to pay registration. I don't want a t-shirt. Is there a registration rate that excludes the cost of the t-shirt? No. Your family reunion t-shirt is all inclusive with registration fees. We ask everyone in attendance (including friends of family members that attend) that they wear their t-shirt during the day Saturday, July 29, 2017.

The Internet has today become more indispensable than any other technology products in the computer world. The internet users are on the rise world over. As a developing country occupying an important position in the BPO segment, India has built up great state of the art infrastructures like Communications, Internet and development centers. Internet is the backbone of the IT industry and the outsourcing domain. As recently as 2003, India was struggling with the dial-up internet services, offering poor reliability for exchange of multimedia content and vital data. Apart from the cost of the services, customers often found themselves at the wrong end of the stick, facing connectivity problems and slow connections.

The Broadband arrived with a bang around the year 2006. Along with the state-run BSNL, many private players like AirTel, TataIndicom, Reliance and many more, arrived on the scene. Competition , tough one at that, led to charges hitting rockbottom and facilities provided going up day by day. Today an average Broadband internet connection with speeds exceeding 2mbps, is available at a price of around Rs.900/pm(Around 25 US$ ) with unlimited downloads. The reliability of the internet has doubled and the speed of audio/video downloads exceed 1500kbps for an average domestic user. Streaming videos have become a reality. People are watching TV programs over the net and watching cricket matches on the net have become fashionable.

Gone are the days of the painfully slow internet connections. Today because of the Broadband and Wi-Fi revolution, many of the educational institutions have opted for online admission tests, resulting in quicker admission processes. Online shopping and bill payment customers have more than doubled and increasing number of netizens are joining in. The culture of netbanking is spreading slowly and the security concerns connected with netbanking are being resolved to the satisfaction of the internet-banking users.

The rise of the Broadband Internet Connectivity has generated renewed vigor and enthusiasm amongst the knowledge-seekers in that today the Internet in Indiat provides huge business opportuniities. Online marketing and online businesses are on the increase. India too have joined the rest of the world in promoting Internet-related businesses in a big way.

According to the historic marker:
In 1937, this Victorian-style house became the home of John W. Work III. A teacher and composer for 39 years, he served his alma mater by enriching the Fisk musical traditions. Director of the Jubilee Singers, Work III, a serious composer, completed more than 100 compositions. He was not only an acclaimed composer and choral conductor, but also a recognized author, educator and ethnomusicologist.

His father, John W. Work II, composer of the Fisk alma mater, "The Gold and Blue," was known as rescuer and preservationist of Negro religious music. Work II’s book, Folk Songs of the American Negro, was one of the first extensive studies on the origin and development of religious African-American music be a descendant of an ex-slave who lived during the time many of the songs has their beginnings.

DiedJune 24, 1933 (aged 65)

Years active1887–1915

Matilda Sissieretta Joyner Jones, known as Sissieretta Jones, (January 5, 1868 or 1869[1] – June 24, 1933[2]) was an African-American soprano. She sometimes was called "The Black Patti" in reference to Italian opera singer Adelina Patti. Jones’ repertoire included grand opera, light opera, and popular music.[3]

Matilda Sissieretta Joyner was born in Portsmouth, Virginia, United States, to Jeremiah Malachi Joyner, an African Methodist Episcopal minister, and Henrietta Beale.[2] By 1876 her family moved to Providence, Rhode Island,[4] where she began singing at an early age in her father’s Pond Street Baptist Church.[2]
In 1883, Joyner began the formal study of music at the Providence Academy of Music. The same year she married David Richard Jones, a news dealer and hotel bellman. In the late 1880s, Jones was accepted at the New England Conservatory of Music.[1] In 1887, she performed at Boston’s Music Hall before an audience of 5,000.[2]

Jones made her New York debut on April 5, 1888, at Steinway Hall.[1] During a performance at Wallack’s Theater in New York, Jones came to the attention of Adelina Patti’s manager, who recommended that Jones tour the West Indies with the Fisk Jubilee Singers.[2] Jones made successful tours of the Caribbean in 1888 and 1892.[1]

In February 1892, Jones performed at the White House for President Benjamin Harrison.[2] She eventually sang for four consecutive presidents — Harrison, Grover Cleveland, William McKinley, and Theodore Roosevelt — and the British royal family.[1][2][3]

Jones performed at the Grand Negro Jubilee at New York’s Madison Square Garden in April 1892 before an audience of 75,000. She sang the song "Swanee River" and selections from La traviata.[3] She was so popular that she was invited to perform at the Pittsburgh Exposition (1892) and the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago (1893).[4]
In June 1892, Jones became the first African-American to sing at the Music Hall in New York (renamed Carnegie Hall the following year).[1][6] Among the selections in her program were Charles Gounod’s "Ave Maria" and Giuseppe Verdi’s "Sempre libera" (from La traviata).[1] The New York Echo wrote of her performance at the Music Hall: "If Mme Jones is not the equal of Adelina Patti, she at least can come nearer it than anything the American public has heard. Her notes are as clear as a mockingbird’s and her annunciation perfect."[1]
In 1893, Jones met composer Antonín Dvo?ák, and in January 1894 she performed parts of his Symphony No. 9 at Madison Square Garden. Dvo?ák wrote a solo part for Jones.[1]
Jones met with international success. Besides the United States and the West Indies, Jones toured in South America, Australia, India, and southern Africa.[1] During a European tour in 1895 and 1896, Jones performed in London, Paris, Berlin, Cologne, Munich, Milan, and Saint Petersburg.[7]

In 1896, Jones returned to Providence to care for her mother, who had become ill.[1] Jones found that access to most American classical concert halls was limited by racism. She formed the Black Patti Troubadours (later renamed the Black Patti Musical Comedy Company), a musical and acrobatic act made up of 40 jugglers, comedians, dancers and a chorus of 40 trained singers.[2]
The revue paired Jones with rising vaudeville composers Bob Cole and Billy Johnson. The show consisted of a musical skit, followed by a series of short songs and acrobatic performances. During the final third of each show, Jones performed arias and operatic excerpts.[7] The revue provided Jones with a comfortable income, reportedly in excess of ,000 per year. Several members of the troupe, such as Bert Williams, went on to become famous.[1]

Jones retired from performing in 1915. She devoted the remainder of her life to her church and to caring for her mother. Jones was forced to sell most of her property to survive.[1][2] She died penniless on June 24, 1933.[2]
