Door prizes were won by Gary Hendrix, Alysia Burke and Don Replogle, and a live auction and silent auction were held.

After discussion, the family voted to change our reunion date and format for 2018. We plan to hold a lunchtime or early afternoon picnic on Saturday, June 2, at a Marshfield City Park pavilion. Kathy McGovern agreed to reserve a location with the Marshfield Parks Department and to create a Facebook page called Replogle Family - Missouri, where she will post additional information about the 2018 reunion as it becomes available. Be sure to mark your calendars with the date.
The reunion committee appreciates all who helped set up and take down tables and chairs and those who helped with the kitchen, auction and clean-up.
