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 coming 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.
There will never be a fee for the Whipple Reunion. The rental for the Lutheran Camp is $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.
