Wilhite Reunion - it's official Aug 6-8th. Saturday is a fun filled day at the farm. Come for fun, food, and family! Maybe a little ice cream? Some games? Good times! The last few years we have had campfires, tractor rides, lots of memories were shared and created!

Come look for a money tree? "Feed the cats"

Make this yo...ur vacation! If you are traveling in and want to make a week of it there is a lot to do!

Visit Friends and family. Watch the Iowa Cubs in Des Moines! Hit the waterparks in Des Moines or Waterloo. Adventureland in Des Moines. Mall of America in MNPLS. Visit a Farmer Market. Dirt Track racing! Visit Historic Pella. Enjoy the Lakes - Clear Lake or Okiboji! The IOWA STATE Fair starts on Aug 12. IRBC Family Camp 5 is Aug 7-13!

Copy of email from Vana.... I don't have any rooms reserved in Clear Lake or Mason City, they are both about 45 minutes to an hour from Corwith. I do have four, King whirlpool suite rooms, with sofa beds, reserved at the Americinn In Algona (north and west), about 25 miles away from Corwith, on highway 18. That is all they had left for that weekend, although there may be a couple smoking rooms, but didn't think people would want those. The cost $126.00 per night or you may try calling closer to that date to see if there are other rooms available. I have them reserved for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights, depending on a first come, first serve basis. They are under "Wilhite Reunion" and will be released to the general public on those dates, if no one books them. Toll Free Reservations: 800-634-3444
Front Desk: 515-295-3333 Americinn Algona.

We may have access to The Summit House in Britt...This would be closest. So before you reserve Hotel you may want to check with us about summit house.

Clear Lake and Mason City also have accommodations and you are more than welcome to call one of them if you would rather. Some of the hotels available in Clear Lake, right off the interstate, are: Microtel Inn 641-357-0966 Americinn 641-357-8954 Best Western 647-357-5253 Heartland (south side of the lake) 641-357-5123 Mason City has a nice County Inn and Suites, although that is a little farther. That number is 641-423-1770. There is a house in Forest City(about 45 minutes away) that they have converted into a hotel and restaurant, and that is called "The Lodge," their number is 641-585-5060. Forest City also has a Super 8 and that number is 641-585-1300. If none of these options work, you can also, "camp out," there will be trailer hookups available if notified in advance, and we can try to find some other accommodations a little farther from the farm. "Wilhite Waves" to you... Vana for all.

Wilhite Reunion 2008!

The 2nd Wilhite Reunion has come and gone. It was successful. Thanks to all who came! It is so much fun being together and reminiscing. We set a new record for amount of ice cream consumed….Vana can give us those “actual figures” I know personally what I consume is more than I consume in a whole year! (secret….I just eat the ice cream to have A. Bev’s hot fudge!!).
We will add pictures here, I’m sure, soon so you can all see what you missed. We discussed our next Wilhite reunion and in discussing how much can CHANGE and happen in even a years time we don’t want to wait too long to do it again….we are thinking 2010 (same weekend…1st in August). We are all so busy with our lives and our kids’ lives (and for some grandkids) but It is SO IMPORTANT to set this time a side and be with loved ones. What a privilege to be able to share our heritage and memories with all the new ones to the family….both spouses and children. Time this side of eternity is limited and going FAST!!
We are asking all of you to consider planning NOW and set aside that weekend now. We know you will not regret the time and effort to be here. Again we know it is difficult but this time with loved ones has to be made a priority in the “business”.
Please start thinking and praying about it now and let us know what you think. You can comment here on the blog or e-mail us personally. Also please share this with any and all of your families or other relatives that might not be checking the blog!!
Check back soon for pictures and DON’T MISS 2010! Send your ideas.

PS. Just got the ice cream total…… 9 GALLONS consumed in a weekend by Wilhites!!!!! Maybe we could try for a world record (just kidding).

Reunion 2008

Hi! Me again! This may be your last chance to attend the "Wilhite Reunion" for a couple years! Don't miss out on a time to get reacquainted with a long-lost cousin! It was a thrill (yes, even a few tears) last year to see some of the "older" cousins see each other, some of them hadn't seen each other for 20 years! Come and have a good weekend of reminiscing, hear some fun stories, see some pictures, take some pictures, eat some good ole' Iowa sweet corn, soft serve ice cream, "feed the cat" and just enjoy time together. Bring the whole family! Don't forget reservations for a motel room need to be made by July 5 with the "Wilhite Reunion" in Algona. It is a very nice motel and does have a swimming pool for the kids! We have plenty of Iowa fresh air to enjoy also! Just drop us a line or give us a call and let us know what you need and if you will be attending. If you don't know for sure yet if you can make it, surprise us--we like surprises! Looking forward to seeing you real soon...
