Frisbie-Frisbee Family Association Celebrates 53rd Reunion

By Cyndee Pattison

Members of the Frisbie-Frisbee Family Association arrived from Connecticut, Iowa, Illinois, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania and gathered in Delhi last weekend to celebrate their 53rd reunion at the Delaware County Historical Association. Many who attended are descendents of Edward Frisbie who in 1644, settled in Branford, Connecticut and members of the Frisbie-Frisbee Family Association.

On Friday, the group visited the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, the Farmers’ Museum and the Fly Creek Cider Mill. Saturday began with a tour of Hanford Mills in East Meredith and a tour of the DCHA grounds and the Gideon Frisbee house led by Collections Manager Angela Gaffney. There was also a special exhibit of Frisbie-Frisbee artifacts prepared by Lucile and Will Frisbee, who also hosted the celebration.

After a delicious lunch catered by Cross Roads Café, the Frisbie-Frisbee Family Association held its board meeting and donated the exhibition items related to Delaware County to DCHA’s collection. In addition, a $750 donation was made to DCHA for the maintenance of the Christian Church at Fitch’s Bridge located on New York State Route 10, Delhi.
