MIAMISBURG, O., Sept. 10 - The reunion of the Ressler family, organized into an annual institution, centers about the two sisters pictured here. These are Miss Minnie Ressler and Mrs. Amelia Watson, only surviving members of the large family of Michael Ressler, whose descendants now celebrate their kinship each year. Both sisters were born on the old Ressler homestead at the eastern edge of Miamisburg and have been lifelong and well known residents of this community.

Ninety-two guests dined at the tables that were given a beautiful outdoor setting. A program in the afternoon included the recounting of family history by Attorney Mahlon Gebhart, and a narrative of personal experiences in Germany by Charles Myers of Indianapolis.
