91st Whipple Reunion, Sunday, August 21, 2011, Forestville, NY

I just received the annual mailing from Kenneth L. Vogt about the 91st Reunion of the Chautauqua Whipples. (I really need to crash that party sometime–maybe in years, when they have the 100th reunion!) The following is excerpted from the mailing:

This year James and Joan Lisa are hosting the reunion at their home at 2361 Straight Road, Forestville, New York. The reunion starts at noon on August 21.

Food

“The Whipple Reunion will provide coffee and lemonade and we request that everyone bring a dish to pass along with table service, plates, cutlery, etc. For those coming long distances, and do not have access to kitchen facilities, we suggest a stop at the supermarket for convenience food, maybe a salad, cake, pie, chips.”

We shall have a blessing and the start of the meal at 1:00 p.m. sharp.

Expenses
“We will have a free will donation basket at the food serving table. Also don’t forget the white elephant raffle. Bring in those knick knacks, plants, or most anything you would care to donate for the white elephant auction. There are expenses for our hosts and we should reimburse them.”
