What We Do

What We Do

In 1987 we started publishing the "COUSINS" Sh--n Family Association Newsletter. Editors have been Ed Miller, Dorothy York, Jill Miller, and Reba Duncan Porter.  The  newsletter varies in length (8-16 pages) according to contributions of current  information, pictures, research, history and stories about the past and present,  all contributed by the membership. 

Annual reunions have been the "heart" of our Association.  They are held every  year on the second weekend in July - (every  fourth year we return to Mountain City, Tennessee, the original hometown of  Leonard and Barbara Shoun).  



Who We Are As of July 2019

President  - Claire Weibel

Vice President - Keith Shoun

Secretary - Glenda Crout

Treasurer - Beth DuBoise

Historian - Linda Viel

Newsletter Editor - Reba Duncan Porter
