89th Annual Whipple Reunion August 16, 2009

For Whipple relatives living near Chautauqua County, New York (Chautauqua is the western-most county in New York State):

The 89th Annual Whipple Reunion will meet at the Lake Chautauqua [New York] Lutheran Center on Sunday, August 16 at 12 noon.

Directions
The directions to the Lake Chautauqua Lutheran Camp from the Dunkirk-Fredonia Thruway Exit:

  1. Left on Bennett road (Bennett Road also Route 60) South to Cassadaga.
  2. In Cassadaga take a right on Maple Ave., and remain on this for 10 miles.
  3. Turn right on Centralia-Hartfield Road for 0.1 mile.
  4. Left on Elwood Road for 0.2 mile.
  5. Turn left on Route 430 for 9 miles (also called East Lake Road) and follow to Camp.

Food
A special thank you to Rich and Deb Stearns, who will host this year’s event. The Whipple Reunion will provide coffee and lemonade, and we request that everyone please bring a dish to pass along with table service items, plates, cutlery, etc.

For those comping from long distances and do not have access to kitchen facilities, we suggest a stop by the super market for convenience food: cake, pie cookies, chips. We shall have the blessing and start the meal by 1:00 p.m. sharp.

Expenses
There will never be a fee for the Whipple Reunion. However, this year the rental for the Lutheran Camp went up from $50.00 to $75.00, and other expenses have come into play since last year. In the past, we have raised money for the Whipple Reunion through the White Elephant sales and passed the hat for postal expenses on the flyer.

This year proceeds from a free-will offering basket at the buffet table will in part determine what the Whipple Reunion President and Secretary can provide for next year’s reunion.

Send comments or questions to Kenneth L. Vogt (kvvogt@earthlink.net).
