CHIPPEWA RANCH REUNION 2015!
This page is set up to contact campers and renew
memories from Chippewa Ranch, of the fun times and lasting memories that
were acquired for all of the wonderful people who worked and played
there. The Pennington family who started and ran the ranch made all of
these memories, that we are truly indebted for. For those who
don't know the ranch was located 17 miles north west of Mt. Pleasant
Michigan and 5 miles south west of Weidman, Michigan.
A special thanks to Caleb Billingsley, Nancy's son, for
sharing the photos of his family. Special Thanks to Mike Supernault for
sharing his photos. Thanks to my sister Sarah for digging out some also.
Thank you to Dean and Dorothy Adams for the wealth of information and
photos (look for more to come). We just started digging... Thanks to
Jill Baker for the new pictures. Anything is greatly appreciated. Jill
Baker and others including myself have decided that we are going to put
this information into book form. Sure we won't remember everything, but
hopefully we will allow others to enjoy the wonderful joy that the Ranch
and the Pennington's instilled in so many young people. The Ranch is
gone, but will remain in our hearts forever! There are Tee Shirt's
available in all sizes for the cost of the shirt, and shipping. I found
the original Capture the Flag cloth with the original Logo that has
eluded me for along time.
I went for an airplane ride a few months
ago and what a
shock! Some of us were holding out for some miracle thinking
that this was a bad dream and that we would wake up and the camp would
still be there. Well, just look at the new pictures......Very sad!
It's a gravel pit....
Got some pictures from Sandy Siehl, and they really
bring back memories...And Kathleen McNamee for her great picture of on
her horse Tony.
Book is DONE and for Sale!
if you have anything that you want to share with us just drop me a note
and let me know.
