Hosted By: George and Leota Campbell
At their home at: 4816 Heritage Hills Drive, Bloomington, Minnesota
Sunday, June 28, 1981 was a beautiful sunny Minnesota summer day when eight of seventeen first Souhrada cousins, grandchildren of Vaclav and Kathryn Souhrada, gathered at the home of George and Leota Campbell in Bloomington, MN to either get acquainted or come to know one another better.
Dalyn and Phyllis Souhrada
and their three sons, Aaron, Eric & Todd, daughter Rachel from Lime
Springs, Iowa were first to arrive. They were followed by Delbert & Anna
Merrill of Spring Valley, Minnesota and Viola Leslie of Chester, Iowa.
Harry & Viola Noska and their daughter Renee from Park Rapids, Minnesota were next to join us. A few minutes later coming from Long Prairie, Minnesota were John & Donna Urman and their sons Mark & Paul and their daughter and son-in-law Cindy & Keith Dun of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Traveling the greatest distance to attend were Lester and
LaVonne Noska from Springfield, Illinois. Last to arrive was Jane Souhrada of
Minneapolis, MN, daughter of Emil and Ardis Souhrada. She told us her parents
were attending a family reunion on her Mother’s side of the family but that
she would very much like take their place and meet and be with her father’s
cousins. The group more than welcomed her.
