The 150th Annual Bockbrader Family Reunion will be held Aug. 23 at 10 a.m. at the Frederick and Mary Bockbrader homestead, established in 1848 at 1571 SR 105 in Pemberville.

Those attending should plan to eat at noon. There will also be a tour of the homestead, which was restored by current owner Marlyn Bockbrader, and the log cabin, a replica of Frederick and Mary’s first dwelling.
