Janele Whipple sent additional information about the June 9th Dewey Whipple Family Reunion (mentioned in a previous blog post). Specifically, she encourages attendees to participate in the raffle:
I was reminded that I overlooked telling all of you about our raffle for this year. We must raise $300 for next year’s reunion and a raffle is a fun way to do it, share our talents and have fun getting handmade items made by those we love.
We have a quilt coming in from Linda Drake (Dick’s daughter) and some paintings and pottery coming from Karen Suisse (Dick’s daughter). I am still using the hand made cards I got a few years back at a Whipple Reunion. Thank you to whoever brought those, I love them! I encourage all of you to bring something for our raffle at the Whipple Family Reunion, June 9, 2012.
