Descendants of Blaine and Freda Snare, of Huntingdon (Smithfield), and Glenn and Mae Snare, formerly of Aitch, celebrated their 25th anniversary of meeting annually in honor of their great-great grandparents Jesse and Susan Abbott Snare of Aitch. Jesse Snare’s birth date was 1818, and Susan was born in 1820. Both Jesse and Susan were residents of the Aitch area.
President Bob Snare welcomed the group and Jane Snare Yingling was recognized for organizing the very first reunion. Before the meal was served, James (Jim) Snare offered the blessing.
Following the meal Neil Gearhart read the 13th chapter of First Corinthians (the love chapter) and Isaac Snare shared memories of his mission trips to El Salvador (one week in December 2018 and one week in July 2019). Isaac sang his rendition of This Amazing Grace in Spanish. A short business meeting was conducted by secretary/treasurer Faye Snare Peters. Faye read the minutes of last year’s meeting and presented our financial status. Nick Gearhart assisted in the young people’s activities.
Peg Snare’s candy jar was won by Estelle Snare and Amy Alexander won the gift certificate provided by Jake’s at the Lake restaurant. A beautifully decorated cake with a large family tree was provided thru the efforts of Bobbi Jo Snare Gearhart. Cake and Ice cream was served after the meal. Special T-shirts were made available for those who wished to wear them during the making of the group photo by reunion photographer Mike Snare, assisted by Nicole Snare Kilian.
