BFA President Gil Bunker sent along this message to the Bunker family:
Apparently the economy or my grandiose planning (or both) have nearly scuttled the Centennial Celebration in Nantucket, Durham and Boston. We are tragically under-booked for the two tours and the banquet. Our festivities in Boston could also use an increase in participants. We are forced to reschedule activities and drop two days (the 18th and 19th) from our plans.
The Holiday Inn has granted a one week extension of the accommodations deadline – it is now May 21. Call 1-800-HOLIDAY – Ask for Bunker / Breed rate – $129 a night plus tax.
In an attempt to remain solvent, the Tuesday morning business meeting is rescheduled to Saturday morning (June 15) about 9 a.m.; the Durham tour starts at noon. We will now have an adequate number of members for a quorum.
The Tuesday banquet is rescheduled to Monday evening June 17) after the Bunker Hill Day activities have concluded. Usually the banquet has the largest number of participants but barely two dozen have purchased tickets. Choice of chicken, salmon or pork – $45.
The Nantucket and Durham tours will commence as scheduled however there are so many unsold seats, we’ll not come close to breaking even. Nantucket tour – $104 (includes bus, hi-speed ferry and tour) Durham tour – $30.
There are local cousins that haven’t registered at the hotel; that is understandable but I need to know if you will attend any of the activities. Your support is needed.
We’re going to have a great reunion, we always do. See you in Boston,

Bunker Family Centennial
June 13-19, 2013
Holiday Inn Boston, Somerville
30 Washington St., Somerville MA 02143
Ask for Bunker/Breed rate
We shall stay at the Holiday Inn, Somerville (AAA rates it three Red Diamonds), it’s a mere mile and a half from the Bunker Hill Monument in Charlestown. You may book a single or double at $129 and receive a complimentary buffet breakfast, free parking and free Wi-Fi internet in the meeting room & guestroom. There is a restaurant and full bar on the premise and the free large function room will accommodate all the Bunker/Breed cousins and displays.
June 14 – The Nantucket day-long trip should be a winner. The excursion will include a 90 minute bus tour of the island, and still leave about 4 ½ hours to visit the Historical Society, hopefully a few former Bunker homes, do lunch or just explore the island. Nantucket was home to many Bunker whaling captains and countless seamen, however, this will be the first “official” visit by the BFA.
June 15 – We’ll get a late start the following day but allow time to visit the Dover graveyards, dedicate the Memorial Bench, explore the museum and have a early dinner at Newick’s on Dover Point. A good night’s sleep may be necessary before the big parade on Sunday (16th) through Charlestown.
The outcome of the war between the Colonialists and the Redcoats was decided 237 years ago, but the battle between the Bunkers and Breeds will remain in limbo until next year. We need your helping hands on the “rope of recognition.”
More than anything else, the BFA needs an early commitment to attend our week-long 100th birthday party. BFA President Gil Bunker said, “Knowing the complete package may be too much for some, I would appreciate your loyalty if only for a few days. Please let me know your intent.” Send an e-mail to Gil (email@example.com).
