Souhrada Family Celebrates their 4th Annual Reunion
As hosts of the 4th
Souhrada Family Reunion this year, John and Hope Souhrada chose the Town Hall
in Saratoga, Iowa for this celebration. The Town Hall is just a few miles
from Vaclav & Kathryn Souhradaís farm where the Souhrada 1st cousinís
parents were born and raised.
Elizabeth Wosoba Vanicek from Oxford Junction, Iowa was the oldest member attending. She greatly added to our family ties when she stood and spoke of her good memories of Souhrada Family gatherings years ago and her Wosoba Family Heritage. Sixty six family members attended this reunion. Thirty came for the first time and twenty seven families were represented! We came from twenty different rural areas, towns and cities in Illinois, Iowa and Minnesota. Traveling the longest distance were Lester and LaVonne Noska of Springfield, Illinois.
