In 1992, The 10th Jenkins Family reunion was hosted by the Shuqualak, MS. Chapter. Hal Lee Jenkins was the coordinator. The T-shirt tradition was continued. The shirt featured a family tree of the first 7 pioneers of the Jenkins Family. A cap, pencil and napkin souvenirs were added. This reunion featured a week long camp meeting, a parade through the Jenkins Quarters, a dance, an award ceremony, a Candle Light Memorial Service, and a hair fashion show. The highlights of this "Decade of Digging Our Roots" were the First Jenkins Scholarship Presentation and a picnic. The picnic was a fun filled day of games: Not-So-Newly wed, Duck Pond, Softball, Spaades, and Uno. The Saturday night activities ended with a dance. Sunday, culminated this "Decade of Digging Our Roots": With a Homecoming Celebration at First Baptist Church, Wahalak, MS. The guest speaker was Rev. Eddie Jenkins. The Jenkins Family and church members served dinner.
