A BRIEF HISTORY OF EARLY FAMILY REUNIONS
The “Glackin Clan” held its first gathering at Black Barren Spring Park, PA on Labor Day 1925.Reunions were not held during six years since that date due to deaths in the family and the war years (1942 – 1945).In 1931 the first of many enjoyable meeting were held under the grove of beautiful old trees on the site of the Friends Meeting House at Penn Hill.Many family members are buried in the adjacent cemetery.It was at this meeting that a committee was first elected to serve as officers of the Glackin reunions as follows:
President Jerome Glackin Secretary Margaret Collins Treasurer Margaret DeLong
During World War II, 19 members of the “clan” served in the Armed Forces and all returned safely.At the 1947 reunion the members agreed that a fixed date should be set for our annual gathering, and determined the date would be the Sunday falling in the week prior to Labor Day.
