Bulman reunion is July 18

The 62nd annual reunion of the Bulman, Hartley and Beardmore families is slated for Sunday, July 18 at the Community Center in Eitzen, MN. A potluck meal will be served at 12:30 p.m. with a meeting to follow.

The five Bulman ancestors who came to America from Little Thetford, England in the 1850s were Thomas, George, William, John and their sister, Mary Bulman Sadler. All descendants of these early settlers are cordially invited to attend this reunion meal.

Beverages will be provided. Those planning to attend are asked to bring food to share, their own table service, family pictures and stories. This year a scanner will be available for copying photos, negatives and slides. There will also be room behind the center to show off collector vehicles and there will be door prizes.

A Sunday morning church service will be held at the family’s “home church,” Mt. Hope Presbyterian Church located in rural New Albin, at 9 a.m.

The Bulman reunion now includes other family names after seven generations, including Beardmore, Hartley, Mohwinkle, Ebner, Shefelbine, Leppert and many more. Those who cannot attend are encouraged to send their updated birth, death and marriage information for the family tree.
