The 51st annual Ludick family reunion will be July 27 at noon at the Plum Creek Park in Kent.

This year, the reunion will honor three of the nine original first-generation Ludicks: Mike, who settled in Kent; Helen Ludick (Cox) from the Akron area; and Joe, who resided in Brimfield Township.

A canoe trip on July 26 is planned down the Cuyahoga River looking for the old swimming holes of the family. A prefamily get-together also is planned for July 26 at 6 p.m. at Ricco's in Brimfield.

For information on the event, email Denise Ludick at and for local information about the reunion, contact Kenny Ludick at 330-325-9231 or Alex Ludick at

All old friends and all relatives are welcome to participate.
