Yes, I attended the 89th annual Lortie reunion started by my greatgrandparents when
their children and grandchildren were coming on. It has been held ever since, except for during the gas shortage in the Second World War. It has had ups and downs in attendance but about four of the original grandchildren, still alive, try to get out, walkers and all! There are over
500 descendants but only a small core of locals, within a 50 mile radius of
the original home farm, still seem to feel a loyalty to it.
