Planning for the first Quander Family Reunion began in 1925 after the funeral of James A. Quander. The first family reunion was held on August 15, 1926 and the motto was "Stick Together". Quander Family Reunions have been held annually ever since.
The 98th Reunion was held August 4-6, 2023 in Philadelphia, PA. The cookout and meeting took place on Saturday, August 5th at West Fairmount Park, 4160 Horticultural Dr, Philadelphia, PA.
The 95th Reunion planning was interrupted by COVID-19. Virtual events were held in lieu of in-person events. Listen to the music playlist from the virtual visit with cousins from Ghana.
