113th Reunion

113th Reunion - Knoebel's Amusement Park

Saturday July 22nd, 2017

 

The Association of American Boyers Inc., 113th Annual Reunion is set for Saturday, July 22rd, 2017 in Pavilion C at Knoebels Amusement Park and Resort in Elysburg, Pennsylvania. Please mark your calendars.  A map of the pavilion location can be found by clicking HERE. Directions to Knoebels by clicking HERE.

As in other years, the Reunion is a chance for Boyers and their descendants to assemble from all over the country for a day of fun and friendly gathering. The pavilion at the park has seating and picnic tables, and is covered for your protection from inclement weather. Knoebels is a step back to the amusement parks of the past. Parking and admission is FREE. Rides for both the kids and adults are extremely reasonable.

Important note: We will do catering this year but you need to respond as soon as possible. Look on the main page for more information. If you are not interested just bring your own lunch or wander into the park and purchase something from the very reasonably priced concessions and bring it back to the pavilion. There is a wide variety of food available and it is very good. You should note that it is a little bit of a walk from the pavilion to concessions so take that into account. Food is typically: Half of a Barbecued Chicken, Potato Salad, Baked Beans, Chips, Cookies, Drinks, and maybe more.

Our schedule will the same as last year. We are going to have the program in the morning before lunch. That way those that want to partake of the lunch options in the park do not have to rush back.  Association business, genealogical discussions and the reunion program will be before lunch. Mingling and maybe we will again play our own version of BINGO called BOYER this year!

The park has an awesome assortment of rides, games, activities, entertainment, and a swimming pool (admission required) at very good prices. As an example; ride the grand carousel and try to grab the brass ring for only $1.00. Knoebels is one of the last of the traditional amusement parks, but with some thrills for the younger set. They have been highly rated for their food. Also, they have great acts providing entertainment in the band shell. You won’t believe how nice it is until you get here.

Available at the reunion for purchase will be limited items with the Boyer crest and the first seven volumes of the 7th Edition of American Boyers. Please let us know if you will be purchasing a book so we can guarantee having one there. Either mail us a note or email us at boyerbook@americanboyers.org with a short note. Neither of these obligates you to purchase, but helps save us from having to haul too many books to the reunion.

For those thinking of staying and need lodging information Knoebels has a link to some places if you click HERE.


We hope to see you there to enjoy a day of fellowship with other Boyers. A more detailed schedule can be found below. For more information on Knoebels check their web site at
