Our 116th Reunion

"The Glattfelders and their Patents"

The 116th annual Casper Glattfelder Association of America's Reunion is now history! We are very thankful for all who were able to attend the Reunion! We enjoyed beautiful weather, great fellowship, an interesting program, good food and the Brodbecks Band! We thank all those who had a hand in the preparations and making it happen! We were truly able to celebrate all of our blessings and rich Glattfelder Family Heritage this past Saturday!

We are thankful for work done on the presentation - two years in the making! Harry Gladfelter, Pat Donaldson, and John Glatfelter presented noting that a list of over 200 Glattfelder patents had been compiled, with more to be found! We look forward to "The Glattfelders and their Patents - Part 2" next year!!

2020 - 115th Annual Reunion

Our 115th Reunion
September 12th, 2020

This was an unusual Reunion! Board President, Tom Shelley noted that 75 years ago was the last time a Reunion Meeting of just the board members occurred. It was the end of World War II, and the association had not had the reunion in the previous four years.

While there was not the usual formal program, portions of the progam were still carried out including the Memorial Service, Business Meeting, and the singing of the Reunion Hymn at the conclusion of the Reunion Meeting. There were 22 Directors and Guests in attendance.

The Association was pleased to have Jim McClure attend the Reunion. He wrote the following in his column in the York Daily Record: "How do you hold safe family reunion during pandemic" Enjoy!

While the Reunion Theme for 2020 was to be "The Glattfelders and their patents", it was decided to postpone this presentation until 2021 and our 116th Reunion which is to be held on Saturday, July 31st. Harry Gladfelter and others have been working on this presentation, and have compiled an impressive list of descendants who are patent holders! A short preview to "wet your appetite" was created and is available here: Glattfelder Patents Preview
