Briscar Family Reunion

Warm Greetings Family,

We're planning a Family Reunion for the Briscar Bunch! ~the descendants and families of John and Anna Briscar.

Location:  Plantation Park  734 Wilson Ave. Mercer, PA  July 8th or 9th, 2023 (We are working with the park to confirm which of the two dates will be available for us. As soon as we have this information we will let you know.)  We have a suggested amount of $12. per person for the cost of the meat, a variety of salads, baked beans, bottled water, tablecovers, plates, napkins and plasticware. If anyone would like to contribute more to cover the costs of any who do not have the $12. , that would be appreciated.  You're welcome to bring a dessert or dish to share if you'd like, perhaps an old family recipe. We hope it will be a wonderful time to connect/reconnect with family, enjoy food, have fun telling stories and making memories. There will be a pavilion for us all to gather, a playground and a fenced in swimming pool. There are also paddleboats to rent for $1. and mini golf for $1.  There will be games and maybe a Chinese "Slovak" Auction. 

If you are traveling from afar or would just like to stay overnight, there are plenty of *hotels, a **KOA and the***Grove City Outlets nearby.


Hope to see you there 2023!

A Family Reunion is a time to remember, a time to laugh, a time to celebrate...a time to share old stories and make new memories.

A time to see each other in the faces all around us and find reflections of ourselves in hearts both young and old.

A Reunion is a coming together that strengthens the bond of family and reminds us of the gift of belonging

A chance to share our history. A reason to celebrate our past. A time to welcome our future...as a family.
