Five generations of Brewsters gathered for the 40th Annual Brewster Reunion on Sunday, August 30, 2017 at the Don Brewster Farm, just east of Bowling Green.
Family members started gathering on Saturday with a meal prepared by Wayne Baker and entertainment by Butch and Byron Perron.
On Sunday, 47 family members and friends from four states gathered for a carry-in lunch, visiting, sharing family stories, and picture taking. Different family units were recognized, and shared special events: each of the five generations were recognized and remembering one of our family members Tommy Baker, who passed away this past year. We also enjoyed sharing the many different occupations that our ancestors did and what many of the family members do now.
