June 03, 2018: Counting Reunions
Today, there was a bit of controversy about what number this reunion should be. At the beginning of the discussion, this website stated that the 2018 reunion would be the 83rd. The Constitution was adopted in 1937. Treating that year's meeting as the first one, this year is the 82nd reunion. (My record of changes to the website indicates that I erroneously incremented the number twice this year, oops.) The 1937 reunion minutes state "The third annual reunion of the J. D. Whelchel Fmaily was held at the the home of Mrs. Amanda Palmour Whelchel, April 4th, 1937." Going by that, this year should be the 84th reunion.

December 29, 2013: Support for IE 6 Discontinued
I have enabled support for SSL for the private sections of the website. Since the SSL support at our web host depends on SNI to function, Internet Explorer version 6 support has been discontinued. In the next few months, the entire site will transition to secure connections. At that time, IE 6 users will be unable to access any part of the site. You will need to switch to another browser to continue to access the site.
