1988 - Souhrada Family Celebrates their 8th Annual Reunion
   at the Tower Club, Cresco, Iowa
   August 6th, 1988
   Hosted by Dalyn and Phyllis Souhrada and Leota Campbell

All who attended this 8th annual Souhrada family reunion at the Tower Club in Cresco, Iowa had a delightful time. This was the first time we have met in a restaurant where our meal was served to us. In past reunions we all enjoyed the delicious potluck meals but we had to prepare the dining room for this - and then there was the cleaning up afterward.

This year we all came as guests. The dining room and dinner was prepared for us to enjoy and enjoy we did along with the delight that comes from getting together with the family again. A great event of the evening was listening to our family members being interviewed by Anton Vanicek as he videotaped them. What a blessing for us to have the joy of this 8th reunion recorded!


Elizabeth Wosoba Vanicek, 92, from Oxford Junction, Iowa was the oldest member attending and her granddaughter, Elizabeth Vanicek of Muskego, Wisconsin was the youngest. Willie Souhrada of Joshua, Texas, traveled the greatest distance.
