Schlapia Reunion

The family of Owen and Madge SCHLAPIA gathered at the Diagonal Community Building on Sunday, August 4, 2013, for a noon meal and family reunion. Jim SCHUBERTH gave the blessing before the potluck meal was enjoyed by 71 members. The families were all introducted by a member of each family with updates of those not able to attend.

Majorie JESSEN of Creston, the only child living of Owen and Madge SCHLAPIA, was missed as she was unable to attend but several enjoyed visiting with her later that evening in Creston.

Special guests and the member having the SCHLAPIA name and longest attending was Marilyn SCHALPIA, wife of Dale SCHALPIA who stayed with the family often in his younger days, along with her daughter Meredith DREDGE. Larry SCHLAPIA of Creston as determined to be the oldest male of the group and Larry and Mary Lee SCHLAPIA were thanked for keeping the SCHLAPIA family reunion going for so many years before turning it over to Robert and Cindy SCHLAPIA of Diagonal this year.

The most recent additions present were also honored. Ashtyn SCHLAPIA was recognized as the youngest girl and her parents, Chad and Brittany SCHLAPIA recognized as the most recently married couple present. Henry CONLEY was the youngest boy attending with his grandmother, Carey PALMER, and his great-grandparents, Marion and Sharon PRICE, also honored as the longest married couple.

Those attending from the longest distances were Lauren SCHUBERTH, Jeanie REZMER, Tracy, Megan and Cameron FINLEY with Cameron honored as the most recently engaged, with a wedding coming up this fall.

Ellie DAVENPORT was recognized as star graduate this year who will be off to Chicago, IL to attend college this fall.

The rest of the day was spent visiting, taking pictures, checking out family history and lots of reminiscing.

Amy NOVAK made cotton candy for the kids which was a big hit.
