31/07: Quincy Orphanage Alumni Reunion 2009
Alumni of the Quincy United Brethren Orphanage will be gathering on Saturday, August 8th to share memories, enjoy each other’s company once again and eat some good food! The day’s events, which will be held in the Hess Community Room in Minnich Manor at Quincy Village, will begin at 3:00 PM and include a musical performance by Rick Harris, a group picture will then be taken, and the day will conclude with a delicious dinner and business meeting of the alumni association.
The alumni members have been invited to visit the new Thrift Shop in the Winter Building which is being operated by the Quincy Care Auxiliary and also the Quincy Village Model Railroad Club which has created a fantastic diorama in the same building. The Quincy Village History Room will also be open and staffed by Tom King. This room houses an incredible collection of memorabilia from the Orphanage’s past and Tom has done an amazing job of gathering these items, thereby keeping the alumni’s memories alive!
Records show that the Quincy Orphanage Alumni Association was formed sometime in the 1930’s. The organization still meets annually the second full weekend in August. Mr. Melvin Underkoffler is the current President and Mrs. Peggy Pacharis is the Secretary-Treasurer.
