The 100th Reunion of the Chautauqua Whipples is only six years away (2020?).
I recently received the annual mailing from Kenneth Vogt, announcing this year's Whipple Reunion at Midway State Park, on the shores of Lake Chautauqua in western New York state.

The Chautauqua Whipples are primarily the descendants of Deacon James Whipple (http://whipple.org/11538) and Persis Sheldon (http://whipple.org/11539).
Midway Park Shelter #5 is reserved from 9AM to 6PM.
The reunion officially starts at 12 noon. Blessing on the food is at
1:00 p.m. Bring a lawn chair to ensure that you have a seat.
Food: The Whipple Reunion will provide coffee and lemonade. Bring your
own dish to pass along and your own table service. Those coming long distances can stop at the supermarket for convenience food, possibly a salad, cake, chips, fried chicken, pizza, etc.
Expenses: There will be a free will offering at the food serving table.
Don't forget the Chinese auction. Bring your knick-knacks and
fascinating items for the auction. (The hosts have expenses; we should
reimburse them for reservations and advertising.)
