THE PEYTON SOCIETY OF VA (PSV) ANNUAL MEETING AND REUNION
The annual Society reunion and meeting is held every Spring, at Aquia Church in Stafford County, Virginia. Peyton/Payton, and related surname descendants and their spouses and children of all faiths, whether they are Members of the PSV or not, are welcome to attend.
The meeting is held at Aquia Church because it is the historical "home" of the Peyton branch that founded the PSV.
Note: The 2018 Annual Meeting and Reunion is tentatively scheduled for May 19-20, 2018.
The date of the 65th Peyton Society of Virginia ANNUAL MEETING AND REUNION Weekend is May 20-21, 2017.

Generally, and depending upon levels of anticipated participation, the reunion is structured as follows:
On Friday; the day before the reunion, early arrivals who are interested in getting together for an informal dinner Friday night at a local restaurant, will find instructions left at the hotel reception desk.
On Saturday, there is a General Membership Meeting [or possibly both an Executive Committee Meeting and a General Membership Meeting].
A hospitality room is often available Saturday afternoon at the hotel.
Saturday evening, a (BYOB) catered Banquet Dinner is held at the beautiful Aquia Church fellowship building.
On Sunday, Members of the Society may attend the Aquia Episcopal Church 11:15 am Service, if they chose. The Service lasts approximately forty-five minutes to one hour, and is immediately followed by Graveside prayers near Peyton graves at the adjacent church cemetery, followed by a Luncheon in the church fellowship building.
Peyton Society Pins, Ties, CDs of the Peytons of Virginia II book and its Additional Data, as well as CDs of other Peyton events will be available for purchase on both days.
