1983 - Souhrada Family Celebrates their 3rd Annual Reunion
At the home of Emil and Ardis Souhrada, rural Chester, Iowa
Ardis Souhradaís daughter, Jane came to the first cousin reunion at the home
of George & Leota Campbell in Bloomington, MN on June 28, 1981. Janeís
parents were not able to attend our 1st cousin gathering but thankfully she
came representing them. The family on Janeís motherís side held yearly
reunions so Jane was excited to be part of her fatherís cousins gathering.
She had heard about reunions held many, many years ago in the Oxford
Junction, Iowa area and found the names and addresses of some of those people
and sent invitations for this 3rd gathering of Souhradaís. What a blessing
this was for our Souhrada reunions!
Elizabeth Wosoba Vanicek of Oxford Junction, Iowa received Janeís invitation and responded by bringing her family of three generations! Every age group was represented, making this gathering of thirty-nine members very special. What an exciting day this was for all of us. What started out as a 1st cousin reunion two years ago so we could come to know each other had now branched out into Souhrada family members attending who had attended reunions many years ago in the Oxford Junction area. Welcoming this newfound branch of our family made this a very special delightful day.
