Bitler Family Origins

Bitler Reunion Information

The 115th Annual Bitler Reunion weekend will be held on August 17-18, 2024. As always, we hope to meet new-found cousins from near and far. Thank you to all who make each and every Bitler Reunion special, and for the tireless work of our reunion president and other officers.  Keep the tradition alive and join us for this and future reunions. There is fun for people of all ages. Saturday is a relaxing day at Montour Preserve (originally the Joel Bitler homestead) where you will have a meal and time to sit and talk, play games and interact with family.  Sunday is a meal, reunion business meeting, and most families scatter through Knoebel's Grove Amusement Park for the remainder of the day. Reunion Weekend is a traditional family get-together where you can meet your distant cousins, share stories, relax, and have some good food and good times!  Click the link for Reunion Information above for full details, locations and accommodations.
