The 2022 Lilly Reunion schedule of events released

Flat Top, WV – The 2022 Annual Lilly Reunion will be held at Flat Top, West Virginia on August 12, 13

and more from 10-8 on Saturday and 10-5 on Sunday. And you don’t have to be a Lilly to
attend. Everyone is welcome.
The first Lilly Reunion was held in 1929 and was held annually until 1949. It was then
revived in 1978 and has been held each year since. The Lilly Reunion was in the 2009
Guinness Book of World Records as The World’s Largest Family Reunion!!!
Lilly cousins and their friends are certainly invited. However, you don’t have to be a
“Lilly” to enjoy the food, entertainment, and fellowship! If your family has lived in the
area for a few generations, you probably have some Lilly heritage in your family tree.
Come and see for yourself at the Genealogy Booth.
The Family Dinner, on Friday, August 12 from 5 – 7 pm (only $10 for adults/$2.50 for
children), will be followed by entertainment in the covered amphitheater featuring the
