We recently received notice of the annual Dewey A Whipple Sr. Family Reunion

Date: Friday-Saturday, June 12-13, 2015
Address:
Heber Valley Camp (same place as last year)
6402 E 1200 S

Friday night activities will consist of singing around the campfire and telling stories. For those that want to camp overnight, the site has four cabins, each with 16 beds (64 beds total). Bring your sleeping bags, as there are no mattresses or bedding.

A nice paved road leads to the camp “and only the last bit into the camping spot is a nicely graded gravel road.”

The camp has a waterfront with a lake for a small fee.

Bring your own dinner Friday night. Breakfast and lunch will be provided on Saturday.

As in past years, there will be a raffle. More information will be forthcoming.
