The extended Blake family reunion ended yesterday with a vibrant church service at the University of South Pacific (USP).

Family spokesperson, Rupert Boulton said it meant a lot for the Blake family to get together at such a good church service. The service lasted for two hours.

“Having lunch together, laughing and talking about where we belong to is what the Blake family expect with other 270 family members from different countries,” he said.

Mr Boulton said the Blake family appreciated the way the church service was organised.

Princess Salote Mafile’o Pilolevu Tuita of Tonga was pleased to see the family bond and children getting along with the Blake family tradition.

“We represent our ancestors today,” she said.

“We are identified as colored family as we follow the line of representing our parents and forefathers by wearing clothes of different colours of green, yellow gold, dark blue, red, orange, purple and sky blue.”

The Princess said these colours gave traditional significance and encouragement to see the generation of Alexander Blake and Matelita Fusi still alive.

This is the second Blake family reunion. The first was held in Tonga last year.
