Just some of the Atlanta Suttons Crew - Pizza Party Time!
We are the Atlanta Sutton Crew!  We represent many, many different Sutton-Connected-Branches. The Backstory...
Hi! I'm cousin Cherie Ferrell. As I began to learn of more Sutton relations who were living in the Atlanta metro area, and to learn of even more who were relocating here, I was pleasantly surprised. As I reached out and connected/chatted with different kin through media, etc., we thought it would be cool to maybe get together in person. A year ago, I booked a small meeting room (for 25) at a popular pizza place hoping maybe 11-12 new/old cousins would show up. I had asked an ATL cousin Tim Crim, who was just as excited as I was, if he would help me with this. Good thing he said yes, as I was late arriving having gone in the opposite direction to pick up one of our out-of-state college student cousins. When we finally arrived at the pizza place there were more than 35 cousins already there, and we had spilled out into the main restaurant area. We were all SO happy to see, meet, connect, and get to know each other. The youngest there was about age 5 or 6, and the oldest was 86. There were also about 7-8 young twenty-somethings. 4 of them were currently attending Spelman and Morehouse - 2 siblings were Morehouse men, and 2 Spelman ladies - and they did not know each other or know that they were cousins. We all laughed about that and were glad they had all gotten to meet that day, although we all acknowledged that we do have some "cousin" family history...  Anyway, that day, family history was presented, all of our branch connections were put forth visually, family tree lines were exchanged, we ate some good pizza, and we all got to connect with a WHOLE BUNCH OF NEW COUSINS!  We all could not believe that there were that many of us here in ATL. Present were Sumners, Crim-Longs, Perkins, Suttons, Singleton-Currie-Flaggs, Crim-Singleton-Sumner-Alsups, Newberns, Steeles, Sutton-Hills, and more. 
     We've remained connected and continued to get together regularly. We became excited about the idea of hosting a very different type of family event here in Atlanta, and our Atlanta Group has been working diligently on your behalf. Our Group has since been joined by Warfields, Pinners, Wares, and more, who are also here in ATL, and is hopefully still growing. (If you know of other family members anywhere in the ATL metro area, by all means please have them contact us. We welcome all with open arms! So as you can see, this Atlanta Retreat is being hosted by a Committee made up of cousins from the different branches and the various branch reunions. We are looking forward to bringing all of the Branch  annual reunion participants together as one in Atlanta, for a very unique and entertaining experience. You may come to Atlanta knowing a few cousins (mainly the ones you always see within your respective branch), but we guarantee you will leave Atlanta knowing many, without even having to really work at it!  The Retreat is designed to facilitate that. Each and every person on the Atlanta Crew is working hard in preparation. We are so blessed to have connected with each other. We all look forward to seeing all of you next July!
