Grieb Family Reunion

the whole gang

The Grieb Family Reunion July 23, 2016 was a blast! Grieb descendants from literally all over the world came to the reunion.  We enjoyed gathering with over 100 family and friends  at Biddle Park in Arroyo Grande.  We played: board games, horseshoes. We mingled: family catching up with family. We ate: lots of food, especially desserts in the traditional Grieb Family manner.
