The 56th annual reunion of the Bulman, Hartley and Beardmore families has been scheduled for Sunday, July 20 at the Community Center in Eitzen, MN. A potluck meal will be served at 12:30 p.m. with a meeting to follow.

Those planning to attend are asked to bring their own table service, family pictures and stories to share.
A Sunday morning church service will be held July 20 at the “home church,” Mt. Hope Presbyterian Church, rural New Albin at 10:30 a.m.
