|And why is this website at hallan.com/ackermanreunion instead of just ackermanreunion.com?
Short answer: Because we Ackermans are cheap... errr...frugal.. and proud of it!
Longer answer: Same as the short answer but add that we can do it for free at Chris' website. HALLAN is an internet development company Chris keeps other things at for free and the HALLAN name is a combination of LeAnn & Chris' 3 kids 1st 2 initials of first child HAnnah, Middle two of next child hoLLy and last 2 of 3rd child christiAN. There ya' go!
