Wardle Reunion Breakfast

For those of you who are regular blog readers, this post is going to seem very random, but I am in charge of organizing breakfast for 150 or so people at my upcoming family reunion and I needed a place to post the plans! So unless you're a Wardle, I'll catch you on the next post! ;-)

Wardle family - read this part!

The plan is to do build-your-own fruit kabobs and donuts for breakfast. According to Grandma Vonda Lee, we should plan on feeding 150. According to my calculations, that means that we will need 50-60 pounds of fruit and 15 gallons of drinks. I'm going to post a list below of things that we need, please sign up to bring something!

To sign up for something, just click on the "Comments" link at the bottom of this post and leave a comment telling me what you will be able to bring for the breakfast. (If you have trouble leaving a comment, you can e-mail me at or call me at 720-685-8616.)

  • Fruit - Some suggestions for kabob fruits are canned or fresh pineapple, bananas, peaches, mango, papaya, kiwi, cantaloupe, melon, grapes, apples, pears, strawberries... or anything else that you would like! In your comment, please let me know what kind of fruit you can bring and about how much.

  • Drinks - We need juice and/or milk. In your comment, please let me know what you can bring and how much.

  • Skewers/Dipping Sauce/Plates/Cups/Donuts - I will take care of getting these things.

Please let me know what you can bring as soon as possible. I need to know whether to feel okay about the breakfast plans or whether to panic! =-)

Plan to have your items at the main breakfast area by 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 4th. This will give us time to set up, chop fruit, etc. before the planned start time for breakfast at 9:00 a.m.

I've tried to notify everyone about the plans for breakfast, but I don't have contact information for everyone. So please help me out by checking with your immediate family to be sure that they know about the plans and how to let me know what they can help with.

I think that's everything for now, but for any questions, contact me!

Hey Sis,
I thought maybe I would hold off on saying what I should bring and you could just assign me what you are lacking in sign ups when the time comes? Or if it would be easier I will sign up for something, just let me know. I will just have to send what I get with Mom or Lissa or someone since I have to work. Do you know if Mom has her internet back up yet? Have you had any emails from them in the last week or so? Just wondered if I should print this out and get it to them. Thanks for your hard work!

Actually maybe easier to just go ahead and sign up for something now, just to get the ball rolling! And yes, please print out the blog and take it to Mom & Dad. I sent the link, but forgot that they were having problems getting online!

I'm feeling a little left out. I want to come to a family reunion! J/K! Have fun!

Hey Tara,

This is Kelley Why don't you sign me up for a 2 pinapple, 2 honeydew and 2 cantelope. The Kabobs sound fun - Good idea~ Let me know what else. PS I probably will need a reminder closer to reunion. I will try to write it on my calendar but I think I am starting to get the CRS disease...

I think the last comment went to cyberspace. Our usual MO is to stop at Vernal on our way up, but we can check Costco for bulk items, too. Strawberries are on now, but I'm not sure if they will still be here in a couple weeks. Will keep you posted. Are you getting liquids Sat morning or do we need to bring coolers for that.

As much a memo to myself as for anyone else, but we have cups, plates, napkins, kabob skewers and cups for the fruit dip. We also have 10 gallons of Tampico fruit juice, so Aaron and I will just pick up 5 gallons of milk and the ingredients for the fruit dip on Saturday morning. I have also arranged to pick up 12 dozen donuts from Smith's on that Saturday morning. I think what's left is just to be sure that we have enough fruit coming and people to help cut it up for kabobs!
