SKIDMORE – Sixty relatives and guests, including Paula Marchak of Refugio, attended the Sugarek Reunion on Saturday, April 20, at Robert Sugarek’s home in Skidmore.

Special guests were Grace Smith, Robert’s mother, and Aunt Margeurite Sugarek Keasler, Tulsa, Okla., who was joined by her sons, Kenny, from Denver, Colo., and Robin, wife Peggy and grandson, Jesse from McKinney, while showing off the most recent addition to grandpa Robert Sugarek’s family, five-month-old granddaughter Maddie.Margeurite S. Keasler is the sole survivor of eight Sugarek brothers and sisters who migrated from the Czech Republic, formerly Czechoslovakia.

In the spring of 1856, the Frank Sugarek family came to America in a sailboat and went to Bluff, a little town near La Grange.

One of the highlights of this event was the visiting, camaraderie and sampling of the great foods, which included tasty fajitas, pork ribs, and Elder’s smoked sausage prepared by the two chefs: Bruce Woods and Robert Sugarek.

An array of side dishes graced the tables too. After lunch they were serenaded by Fernando Cisneros, a talented mariachi troubadour.

One of the songs he sang was “Amazing Grace,” and his singing was enjoyed by all.

This was one of the best Sugarek reunions on record.

To finalize this reunion, relatives and guests had a cleanup and grave adornment at the cemetery.
