Mission Statement: Mandeville is a community that is populated by diverse groups whose common bond is the love for Mandeville’s scenic Lakefront. By setting aside a day where families and friends can come together to celebrate the essence of Mandeville - by enjoying a picnic, sampling the cuisine of local restaurants, and enjoying entertainment on the beautiful and historic Lakefront - it is our hope that the Mandeville Family Reunion of 2017 will further promote and enhance a sense of pride and community spirit.
