Depa Family Reunion (6th - 26 July 2008)

The 6th annual reunion of the late Paul and Anna Depa family was held on Saturday, July 26, 2008. The special day began with a prayer service at St. Mary’s Czestochowa Cemetery. A brief family history, prayers, poems and songs were dedicated.

Following the graveside service the family tree presentation took place at the American Legion Hall in Thorp. Updates were announced of all the changes that have occurred since the last reunion. Each family was presented with a beautiful family tree booklet. Introductions and many family pictures were taken of all present. A delicious dinner was then served. The afternoon and evening were spent reminiscing and viewing pictures from the past. A bingo game and other relay games were enjoyed. Awards and prizes were later passed out to the lucky winners. Later polka music was provided by Joanne Jacks and Rock & Roll music hosted by Scott Filipek kept the dancers on the floor all night long.
