At the Saturday afternoon
gathering, Janel Stephens welcomed all and began the introductions. Mike
Albin and Susan Watson (first time reunion attendees) were recognized as
those travelling the farthest from Greensboro, NC. Pete Souhrada
presented an overview of our ancestral roots and tried to connect how all of
the reunion attendees are related. He also presented a brief history of how
the Souhrada reunions began back in 1981 and how we were reunited with our
Czech cousins and homelands in 1990. Pete also reviewed the first Souhrada
family reunion in the Czech Republic and encouraged everyone to consider
attending the upcoming reunion in the Czech Republic.
Those attending this year’s reunion were:
Barb and Mark Erickson
Paul and Tammy Flynn, Anne
Rick and Gretchen Flynn
Dave and Cherie Souhrada
Mike and Penny Souhrada
Sue Albin Watson
