The tentative dates for the 2024 reunion are Wednesday June 5 through Sunday June 9 in Reading, PA.
The Boone Society started with a small group that was interested in the genealogy and the lives of our early ancestors. Our first reunion was held in 1996, St. Louis, Missouri and we have regular reunions every other year in even numbered years in different areas where our ancestors lived.
In 2007 and 2015 a group of members made the trip to England to visit the small community where the George Boone family lived and worshiped at Stoke Canon. The church had special services for our group and used the same program that was used in the late 1600’s when the Boone’s attended this same church. Some of the places we visited were Buckingham Palace, Stonehenge, the Roman Baths, Churchill’s Childhood Home Blenheim Palace, Anne Hathaway and Shakespeare’s home in Stratford-upon-Avon and other famous historical sites.
In 2015 we returned to England for several days, toured Buckingham Palace while the Queen was out of town, Westminster Abby, then crossed the English Channel to tour the WW 2 American Cemeteries at Normandy, the lovely old historic city of Bayeau, visited Cathedrals and Museums, saw the Mona Lisa, Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, and ended this wonderful visit for a tour and dinner at the Eiffel Tower.
In May 2019, the Boone Society will tour Scotland and visit Blair Castle, Cullodon Castle, Edinburgh Castle, Cruise of Loch Lomond and Inveraray Castle plus various Museums. Photos will be added later.
Our Reunions are always enjoyable, fun-filled gatherings and we invite everyone to join the Boone Society at https://boonesociety.org/join
