Ready For Something To Laugh About?
Announcing the 2021 Towne Family Association Reunion, Inc.

Celoron/Jamestown, Chautauqua, New York
September 27 - October 1, 2021

Don Traynor and Dianna Emerson, Reunion Co-Chairs

This reunion begins on Monday, September 27, 2021 with departure on Friday, October 1, 2021, a change from past years to take advantage of lower mid-week hotel rates. It will also give attendees as chance to explore New York State or New England the weekend before or after the reunion right when leaf-peeping season might be starting.

Jamestown, NY is the hometown of our cousin, Lucille Desiree Ball, a descendent of Joseph Towne and Phebe Perkins. We will be staying at the lakeside Chautauqua Harbor Hotel in Celoron, New York, just feet from Lucy's childhood home and adjacent to Lucille Ball Memorial Park. Visits are being planned to The Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum and the non-profit National Comedy Center. This is the United States' official cultural institution, state-of-the-art museum and interactive visitor experience dedicated to presenting the vital story of comedy and preserving its heritage for future generations. After the very difficult 2020 year, we are certainly ready for some light-hearted fun!
