The 85th Hadley-Bevan reunion was held Sept. 16 at the home of Bruce and Adrianne Bevan. President Hesperia Bevan welcomed everyone and thanked the host and hostess for their hospitality.
The blessing before the bountiful meal was given by Bruce Bevan. After the meal everyone introduced themselves and told of their Hadley or Bevan ancestor.
The roll call was answered by six from the Archibald Hadley family; eight from the Emmett Bevan family; no one from the Frank Bevan family; and nine from the Orlando Bevan family.
