100th Whipple Reunion August 16, 2020

[Note: This note appeared in the webmaster’s mailbox several weeks ago. This reunion definitely sounds like the one to attend!]

“Save the Date”

Hi Whipple Descendants,

This reunion is going to be History. There are not many families that get together like the Whipples do. Thank you for taking part. If you may know of a member that has not been able to attend, please get information out to them to stay informed, copy and pass on this letter.

This year the location is at Ray and Ann Stearns’ farm on Rt 394, Kennedy, NY 14747. There will be a need for help, the weekend of the reunion. If anyone would like to assist, contact: Lydia or Jeff Galati. 704-224-6850 or 6689.

T-shirts will be available at the reunion for $10. Any donations in excess are appreciated, and go toward the reunion.

As I mentioned last year, I am putting together a quilt that will have 6″ squares that each family can design. I have the blocks and they are available for $3. This will be a 100 year quilt.

A Whipple Family Cookbook is being constructed by Dan and Bonnie Bromsted. There needs to be at least 100 recipes or the book will not happen. Please help with this treasure and get out your grandmother’s recipes and sent to: bromsted@verizon.net. Dan needs these by March 1st.

As a reminder: As the 2020 Reunion comes closer, please keep a look out for email and Facebook invites, so we will have a count of who all is planning to attend this year’s event or not. There is going to be a chicken BBQ provided by Ray Stearns and family. There is an estimated amount being ordered, per past reunions. We would hate to run out. Please respondWe want everyone to be included.
