As with every third Saturday in July for the last 90 years or so (they didn't hold reunions during some of the war years), Saladas and their kinfolk have been converging on the Brady Township Building in Luthersburg, PA. It's just outside of DuBois, PA, which is the Salada Homeland, as Duncan calls it. Duncan's grandfather, Maurice Victory Salada, was one of eight children that grew up in DuBois (pronounced Dew-Boys). Maurice and his siblings grew up attending the reunion and now their great grand children are enjoying the games, candy toss, cake walks and square dance. After not taking one single picture of VBS last week, I managed to get many short videos and photos of the reunion this past Saturday.
The Pre-School Version of Square Dancing
Amelie's Slow Dance Solo--gotta love the swam-and-didn't-have-hair-combed-out curls.
Violet had the best time playing with the discarded raffle tickets.
Linus thinks everyone did a good job!
I'm so thankful to be a part of a family with such a cool tradition. Can anyone relate to this at all?
