MALTA — The Baker Family Reunion will be held next week in Malta.

The descendants of James Baker have scheduled the 153rd Baker Family Reunion on Saturday, August 12 at the Malta Community Park. The hours for this year’s reunion will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The first Baker Family Reunion was held in 1865 and has met every year since, except for one year during World War II. While many Baker descendants still live in and around the original family home in Stillwater, cousins living anywhere from Massachusetts to Maryland, from Florida to Alaska have attended recent reunions.

Baker cousins are asked to bring a covered dish to share. Hotdogs, hamburgers, drinks and tableware will be provided. The Malta Community Park has picnic tables under a pavilion, bathroom facilities, playground equipment, a basketball court, and walking trails. The site is fully accessible with ample parking.

Baker cousins also are encouraged to bring photos, videos, memorabilia and news of the family. The Baker historian, Maria Carr, will help attendees research family links.
