ROCKAWAY BEACH, OREGON
VERMILYEA FAMILY REUNION
June 12, 1999
Rockaway Beach, Oregon
by Joe Vermilye
The Vermilyea Reunion 1999 at Rockaway Beach, OR was by all accounts a huge success. If you were there, you know what I am talking about; and if you could not make it, well you missed a special time.
Attendees ranged in age from 1 to 82, coming from as far away as Arizona and North Carolina. There was good food and good sharing, new friendships made and old ones renewed. One attendee, Capt. (Ret.) Robert Vermilya met the other Vermilya he knew of when he did Navy training, one John Vermilya.
The reunion was held at the Twin Rocks Conference Center at Rockaway Beach, Oregon. Souvenir T-shirts, red, with our logo were available for purchase. Family Memorabilia, pictures, family records, albums and newspaper clipping were displayed. Dyckman W. Vermilye gave a very interesting talk about his travels to Vermeille, France, and a raffle was held.
Note: A total of 92 signed the register at this reunion, the largest attendance to date. We all had a wonderful time at the Conference Center on the beautiful Oregon Coast.
