The 115th Haviland Family Reunion will be held July 10, 2010 at Port Dover Kinsmen Park, Port Dover, Ontario.

Saturday’s events will start at 11:00 a.m. with registration, followed by a 12:00 noon pot luck buffet meal at the Pavilion.

Captain John Haviland, a United Empire Loyalist, having served the British as an artificer in the American Revolution, moved from Haviland’s Hollow on the NY/CT state line and settled in 1803 at Townsend Township, Norfolk County, near Brantford. Descendants have held a reunion annually since 1896.
