2006 Souhrada Family Reunion

The 2006 Souhrada Family Reunion took place in Maquoketa, Iowa.  Saturday evening dinner was held at the “Decker Hotel” and Sunday’s gathering and business meeting was held at “Michael’s Hall”.  This year’s event was hosted by the Powelka Family.


31 people attended Sunday’s dinner. It was catered by Mary Ann’s Catering. Dozens of kolaches were baked and served by our host family the Powelka’s.  The business meeting was conducted by Virginia Powelka. Dave Souhrada conducted the auction, which was a great success and fun for all. 


At the business meeting, it was decided that Pete Souhrada, our webmaster, will assume responsibility for maintaining the Souhrada reunion mailing list.  Please provide any address or email updates to Pete by sending an email to the webmaster.  On display were pictures of Dave and Cherie Souhrada’s recent visit to the Czech Republic.
