Welcome to the home page of the
The 2013 reunion was June 28 & 29 at Mahoney State Park in Ashland, Nebraska
Queen Bees Vanessa Teten and Alicia Blex and Drone Barry Snodgrass hosted a wonderful time.
Friday evening an outdoor picnic was held at the Wild Turkey shelter.
Saturday Justin Snodgrass took a large group for a tour at the Stratigic Air Command Air and Space Museum, while others played miniture golf, rode paddle boats, rode horses, or just visited and enjoyed each other's company. In the evening we shared a catered meal supplemented by deserts prepared by the Nebraskans.
A great time was had by all and the group voted to hold the 2015 reunion in Nebraska again.
The tribe of Gene again made the best showing, that's five consecutive reunions! As in the past, we are challenging the other two large tribes, Leslie and Edd, to beat us next reunion.
Our 2011 reunion was 17, 18, & 19 June 2011 in Southeast Nebraska. As always, the Nebraskans put on a great shindig!
Friday night we gathered in Avoca at David and Sue’s place. Everyone had a great time eating (of course), visiting, dressing up in all sorts of fun costumes so that they could have their picture taken behind some picture frames Dave & Sue had hung up. Of course, Uncle Edd & Aunt Verda stole the show!
Saturday we were at the Otoe County Fair Center in Syracuse. The kids mostly young (but some not so young) enjoyed a bouncy house while the adults enjoyed each others company in the air conditioned building. Of course there was food, a catered supper of shredded beef sandwiches, cheesy potatoes, green beans, pasta salad & cherry fluff salad supplemented by desserts and additional salads provided by the Eastern Nebraskans.
Sunday morning, a few us were at Debbie & Rick’s in Nebraska City for an excellent breakfast featuring Debbie’s scrumptious egg casseroles.
Sue was this year’s “Queen Bee.” She was assisted by “Drone” David and all agreed that they organized a truly memorable reunion.
For the fourth consecutive reunion the tribe of Gene has made the best showing. We are AGAIN challenging the other two large tribes, Leslie and Edd, to beat us next reunion.
We had a really great turn out for our 2009 reunion in southeast Nebraska. As always with reunions held in Nebraska, the Nebraskans did a superb job of organizing and hosting. This year, Amy and Jason organized four-wheeling fun along the Nemaha River, and Uncle Edd conducted a tour of the old barn at Cloverhill Farm. Everyone had a great time visiting and reminiscing. For those who could not attend here is a brief recap of each day.
On Friday night, 85 of us enjoyed a covered dish supper at Dave & Susan’s house in Avoca, featuring pulled pork and smoked chicken breasts, prepared by Dave and Michael.
Saturday afternoon started with four-wheeling and the tour of the old barn at Cloverhill Farm, after which 124 of us gathered at Coryell Park (near Brock) for family group pictures followed by another great meal, this time a mix of catered and covered dishes. We finished out this truly great day with a brief program coordinated by Barbara, followed by our usual meeting to set the time and place of our next reunion. The highlight of the program was Barry’s presentation and display honoring the military veterans in our “Tribe.”
Sunday morning, 33 of us who were still hanging in there went to Debbie & Rick’s in Nebraska City for an excellent breakfast featuring Debbie’s scrumptious egg casseroles.
Debbie was this year’s “Queen Bee.” With the help of Barbara, the 2005 reunion “Queen Bee,” she coordinated food, RSVPs activities and all the other details that went into making this a truly great reunion.

Again, the tribe of Gene has made the best showing. That’s three reunions in a row! We are challenging the other two large tribes, Leslie and Edd, to beat us next reunion.
The 2007 reunion in Buena Vista was great! There were 53 in attendance including the two remaining children of Omer and Carletta, Uncle Edd and Aunt Verda, and Aunt Ruth and Aunt Annie. There was four-wheeling, whitewater rafting, lots of camaraderie, good fun, and, as always lots of good food. Here is the breakdown by “tribe.”
The 2005 reunion in Nebraska was a big success! If you weren't there you missed a good time and, I'll admit, a real taste of summer in Nebraska. We had about 118 folks in attendance. Here is the breakdown by “tribe.”
As you can see, the tribe of Gene has made the best showing for two reunions in a row! The figures were derived from the entries in the reunion book and Debbie, Marline, and myself sitting down after each reunion and making a list. I've posted copies of those lists. Please look them over and advise me of any errors or omissions. You can see those lists by clicking the 2005 Reunion Attendees and 2007 Reunion Attendees links.
In an effort to disseminate information about the 2005 reunion I established the 2005 Snodgrass Family Reunion Newsletter.

Now, here's the kicker—I need your input! I can't pass on family news that I don't know about. Please send me those tidbits about your family so that we can all share them.
