   Submitted by Bobbi Spiker-Conley -- The Spiker Family Reunion will be held on Sunday, May 27.  We have not received any official word from the organizers but believe it will be based on a similar schedule as the last two years.  (Read more in our Archived section -- May 2011 issue & the  May 2010 issue.) 

Alice Spiker passed away a few days before the event last year and Adelene Spiker passed away in March this year.  You may view Adelene's online obituary by clicking here.  Both beautiful women will be missed at this year's function but I'm certain their influence will be keenly felt.
