Our 100th Reunion Celebration
We have placed the speech given by Pier-Luigi Quattroponi from Glattfelden, Switzerland to the Friday evening gathering at the 100th reunion ceremonies here.
One of the main features of the 2005 reunion was a bus tour taken on Saturday, July 30, 2005 by about 145 persons. They were residents of twenty-one states. Four were guests from Switzerland. The first version of this script was used on each of the three buses to comment on the places being visited in central York County, where many family members were living and working about 1906. This script also presented information on many Glatfelters who were living at the same time, as the script put it, everywhere else. More than a few tour members were descendants of these everywhere-else Glatfelters. Bus Tour Script
