WILTON – The McGettigan family reunion was held at the farm in Wilton on Sunday, June 14. More than 70 family members attended.

The late Charles and Dorothy McGettigan raised nine children on the farm. There are 40 grandchildren, 57 great-grandchildren and five in the next generation.

Charlie McGettigan Jr. offered a moment of remembrance for brother Don, who passed away last July. Ellie McGettigan was surprised with a 60th birthday cake made by Margie McGettigan.

The family recently donated the easement rights to 141 acres of farmland to the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests.
