The 2022 Robbins Bicentennial Reunion will be held in Westport, Indiana, on Saturday, July 30th, in celebration of the Robbins family residing in Decatur County from 1822 to 2022.
***Some of the information here, especially related to events and activities and formal structure of the reunion, are subject to development and change as we move closer to the event. Keep checking back!***
Date: Saturday, July 30th, 2022
Time: 11am to 5pm; informal welcome and program at 1pm
Location: Westport Community Building, Westport, Indiana (see directions below)
Food/Refreshments: General potluck but some food will be provided. Due to uncertainties as to how many attendees to expect, the reunion is planning on offering some food, but are requesting folks bring additional dishes of their choice (main, side, and dessert). Closer to the event we hope to have a better idea as to how many people to expect and any necessary safety precautions that might be necessary.
Program: We are working on an informal program schedule to include welcomes (to the reunion and the county), recognition for the oldest/youngest and those who’ve traveled the farthest, a brief history, and more!
Other events being planned: Local cemetery, historical society, and library visits! (updates will be posted to this page).
Covid: Covid continues to be a factor in planning events. We hope that the situation will improve by the summer of 2022 but we are monitoring pandemic conditions, health advisories, and public health guidelines. We can’t predict the future but let’s hope for a safe and healthy family reunion. Any updates regarding Covid will be posted here.
Facebook: We have set up a Facebook “Event” page for the reunion. If you are on FB you can always “friend” me (just search for “Kevin Mittge”), even temporarily, and I can “invite” you to the event, and then you, in turn, can invite others.
Publicity: We would like as many people as possible to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime bicentennial reunion. Please spread the word! If you have ideas about publicity please contact us at the email below.
Questions? Feel free to email us at “firstname.lastname@example.org” and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
