Annually, the descendents of James Madigan (brother of my great grandfather, Patrick Madigan) get together on the second Sunday in July at Pottawanomie Park in St. Charles, Illinois. I had the privilege of attending the gathering on July 12, 2009. This event has been going on for more than 80 years. The reunion is called the Woods Reunion because James' daughter, Margaret "Maggie" married Michael Woods. But, I like to refer to it as the Woods/Madigan Reunion.
