This Huber family has a very long relationship with the Bluffton community

The descendents of Russell and Josephine Huber, lifelong Richland Township residents, met for a family reunion recently. Every family has a story, and this family of Hubers certain has some good ones. 

Rather than putting it all in sentence form, here are some of the interesting bits of information shared with The Icon by the family.
