Roper Reunion

This is a rain or shine, hot or cold annual gathering of the Roper family. We share family photos, history and much more. Bring your favorite covered dish. Meat, Drinks and paper products are provided. There's a playground for kids, water balloon battles and the exciting "Hang on to it if you can" gift swap. So bring the entire family and reconnect or get connected with family you didn't know you had. Afterward some make a trek to the River Farm to visit the cemetery where Nicholas and James Roper are at rest along with the reunions funding father Robert "Bob" Roper (1948 - 2002).
