Zalapski Family Reunion 2007

On June 16, 2007, the Zalapski family gathered for a reunion. The party was held at the home of Helen Dumonski (nee Zalapski), in Kamsack SK.

Four generations were in attendance from as far east as Toronto Ontario, and as far west as Jasper Alberta. They ranged in age from 7 months to 87 years of age.

Please post your pictures, comments, and funny stories. This will be a great way for us to share our photos and keep up with each other.

Take a moment to fill out your personal profile. This will come in handy for those working on the family tree, and it is a good way for us to get to know a little more about each other.
