Dutch Fork Chapter Reunion Update

We held a Chapter Executive Committee Meeting today (September 15) and made a decision on the October 16, Dutch Fork Reunion. The Reunion highlighting the end of WWII will be held at Little Mountain reunion Park. We have a few changes to the day's events to be safer. The Location is outside under the large Picnic Shelter in the park, While there are picnic tables we recommend bringing a lawn chair for more comfort and easier social distancing. Masks will be required when within the 6 foot range. You may want a jacket depending on the weather and this year we ask each attendee to bring their own lunch. We have canceled this program 3 times already and the speakers have hung in there with us. Since this was set up to recognize the 75th anniversary of the ending of WWII we felt we needed to put this program on. Also do not forget Friday night in the Reunion Park, October 15 will be the Hauntings and Murders of the Dutch Fork at 7, 8 and 9 pm. The first one is more kid friendly than the later ones 🙂 See you all in a month. The other thing is since you will bring your lunch there will be no charge for this event. Those who have paid will be reimbursed, Just to have an idea of numbers we would love to know if you plan to attend. The Chapter will absorb the Speaker and park fees for this event.

Book Drive

Each year we try to do some sort of service project to promote Genealogy. Last year we had to abandon a massive project due to COVID. SO for this year we thought about how to do a project without much contact that will benefit our goals and objectives. SO we are going back to a project we had success with a few years back and that will benefit all of us for years to come, so it is Book Drive month. See info attached in PDF.  We wish to thank Thrivent for partnering with us in this project.
