Thayer Fam­ily Re­union

Sherbrooke Record - - CLASSIFIED -

Once again on Au­gust 6, 2017, the Thayer clan gath­ered for their re­union at Fair­mount Park in Iron Hill, Q.C. Af­ter every­one ar­rived, the ta­bles were set with pot luck dishes of fa­vorite recipes. A lit­tle af­ter mid­day, Dot Morey from Troy, Ver­mont, opened the day and the meal with a "fam­ily tra­di­tional" prayer. Every­one seemed to en­joy their meal but this year Mother Na­ture gave us sun­shine, but cool winds, thank­fully no rain. Not the nicest weather by far... As we all caught up in our vis­its, door prizes were drawn, and be­cause of the spe­cial "120th" re­union event, our Pres­i­dent Ernest Thayer, brought sev­eral can­vas shop­ping bags, bright red in color with our logo printed on them, also to com­mem­o­rate the oc­ca­sion, a ticket was drawn to win a bucket filled with an as­sort­ment of gifts. The lucky win­ner of this was Bianca Lynn Dam­ato, and as well she gets to keep for the year the "Thayer Stan­ley Cup" which was re­turned by Clarence Rollesten this year. Also, happy to men­tion our el­dest fam­ily mem­ber present is Dot Morey and our youngest present is baby Ever­ley Anne Page born June 11, 2017 to Sa­man­tha Wal­lis and Cole Page. ANNOUNCEMENTS: Grad­u­a­tions, Ab­bi­gail Whitcher, daugh­ter of Laura and Gary Whitcher, Kira Ni­chols, daugh­ter of Brian and Kim Ni­chols. En­gage­ments, Den­nis, son of Laura and Gary Whitcher. Mar­riages, Wendy Whitcher our Vice Pres­i­dent, daugh­ter of late Alice and Allen Whitcher. Births, Nova Rayne Lepine Fe­bru­ary 17, 2017, daugh­ter of Troy Te­treault, Ever­ley Anne Page June 11, 2017 daugh­ter of Sa­man­tha Wal­lis and Cole Page, Ros­alynne Wal­lis Septem­ber 14, 2017, daugh­ter of Nathan Wal­lis and Brooke Foster. Deaths, Alice Thayer Whitcher wife of late Allen Whitcher, Gilda Clark wife of Ru­pert Clark, Marie Thayer wife of late Howard Thayer. Our Pres­i­dent thanked us for com­ing and Ginger Wal­lis, our Web­site Man­ager, spoke of her ap­pre­ci­a­tion. All 55 in at­ten­dance spent a day "worth­while" to­gether, chil­dren oc­cu­py­ing their time with lots of sur­prise toys, treats, and the play­ground, some out on the wa­ter in a ped­al­cap, oth­ers try­ing to find a spot of sun with­out wind. Ended our day with good­byes and hope to see you next year, first Sun­day in Au­gust 2018. Also hope to see those who did not join us this year. Sub­mit­ted by Lor­raine Thayer Jasper.
