Lance / Lantz / Lentz / Lence  4L Reunion


The 2012 Annual 4L Reunion is now officially announced

Please come and join us!

Holiday Inn

Tunnel Road

Asheville, NC

during the weekend of June 7 - 9, 2013


Reunion information,

including a copy of the form that was mailed,

is available on the 4L web site at



Our organization is called The Lance-Lantz-Lentz-Lence People, which we usually abbreviate as "4L." In the past most members were descendants of the Carolina Lentz family, but since then we have opened it up to anyone with the name "Lance" (or other similar spellings). Our goal is to bring everyone together at an annual reunion so we can get to know each other better, learn something new about the families, and to have some just plain fun!

We would LOVE to see all the reunion "old-timers" as well as some new faces. It doesn't matter if you don't know anyone or not... you'll meet more cousins than you can "shake a stick at!"
