We hold an annual reunion every year on the 4th Saturday in June. Our 108th reunion is now history with ~48 members attending at the Bridgeton Township Recreation Grounds. Our next reunion (109th) will be on Saturday, 28 June 2014 (4th Saturday), at the Bridgeton Recreation Grounds in Revere, Pa. Only an email will be sent out in May as a reminder for the event (if you have given us you email address). This year's (2014) newsletter and directions are now available.
Our 100th reunion was held on 25 June 2005 with 272 family members attending. William Penn visited us to help us celebrate such a prestigious event. Click here to read his speech. Here is a poem written for our 75th family reunion!

Michener-Worthington Reunion Family Quilt
We are proud to trace back our heritage to the Quakers Robert and Elizabeth Michener of the Parish of Ash in Surry England. Their son John Michener (b. 25 June 1656) married Sarah Moore (b. 17 June 1664) at a Sussex Friends Meeting in 1686. They shortly left England for America. With a short stay over at Pennsbury Manor, they settled for a while in Philadelphia. In 1715, they left Philadelphia for their final home in Horsham, attending the Abington meeting.
If you would like further information on the our family, we have three books published on the subject:
"Micheners in America", "More Micheners in America" and "Still More Micheners in America". We also keep our family records in the Bucks County Historical Library in Doylestown, Pa. The first two books were written by Anna E. Shaddinger. The third, by Sheri Michener. If you would like more information please contact Regina Butterer, Family Historian
