2019 Reunion

The DiPaolo – DePollo – Ferruso – Pavone – Butler – Helmick – Watring – Loukmas – Waitekunas – Dilettoso – Bachtel – Quattro and ALL related families will be having a Family Reunion on July 26-28, 2019, in Thomas, WV. This reunion will be hosted by the DePollo Family, and organized by Janice DePollo Lantz.

As in the past, we will gather for a reception on Friday evening in the Lounge area at the Blackwater Falls State Park Lodge around 7:30 p.m.

On Saturday, we have secured the Knights of Columbus Pavilion, located on route 32 between Thomas and Davis, with Festivities beginning at noon. The pavilion was not available on Sunday, but in the past, the family has gathered at Horseshoe Run Recreation Area for more fellowship and merry making. More details to come on that.

Optional tours of Thomas and the local cemetery will be available for anyone who wants to go.

For the picnic, the Joe DePollo family will provide grilled hot dogs and Italian sausage. Bring a dish to share. Also anyone who plays an instrument or has a story to tell should practice up! We will give some prizes for the oldest, youngest and the furthest traveler, and we’ll have some games and other activities. We’ll collect a free-will offering at the picnic to donate to the K of C for use of their pavilion.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone again. Excitingly, we’ve discovered relatives from the family of Felix Powell (Feliciano DiPaolo), a long lost brother to our family founder, Joe DePollo (Guiseppi DiPaolo). We hope some of his descendant family members can join us this year.

Let Janice DePollo Lantz (jadlantz@aol.com) know if you plant to attend by July 15, so we have an approximate count. You could alternately fill out the survey related to this post by clicking here
