The 28th-annual Roe family reunion was held June 16 at Friendship Park in Smithfield with 48 in attendance from throughout Ohio and Pennsylvania.

The invocation was given by Margaret Nickoson, daughter of Martha Bradley.

The eldest in attendance was Martha Melching Bradley, daughter of the late Henry and Bertha Roe Melching.

The youngest attending was Carly Freeman, granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Roe whose daughter, Ashley Freeman, won the 50-50 drawing.

The reunion included an auction, bingo, games. The 2013 reunion will be held June 15 at Friendship Park.

Donofrio, Donofe, Dunope

The 58th-annual Donofrio, Donofe, and Dunope family reunion was held on July 1 at the Follansbee Park Community House.

This year's theme was "Family Game Night." Chair Melanie Donofe welcomed everyone and led the group in prayers.

A covered-dish dinner was held with 15 families and 40 people attending from West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York. Board games and bingo followed.

The group sang "Happy Birthday" to Jeana Talerico, 9, and to Margaret Puzzuole, 94.

Prize winners were Joe Filiano, Jimmy Meyers, Linda Meyers, Marian Gugala, Leah Filiano, Glenna Whitehead and Louise Donofe and Linda Meyers.

Basket auction winners were Rich Lawton, Tessa Filiano, Timmy Meyers and Mary Ann Dunope.

The 59th reunion will be held next summer.
