A Message from Arnie Hinojosa

Don't know where to start after Saturday's annual gathering; our 48th Mini Reunion.  My personal feeling is that the event was a HUGE SUCCESS!  A big "thanks" to our classmates who were able to attend.  Everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves and it was good to see Mrs. Hoke.  We had classmates travel from Austin, Freeport, Bryan, Montgomery, Huntsville, Rockwall, Anderson, Weimer  (just to name a few TX towns), and even a classmate all the way from Louisiana!  That's what we call "Panther Pride"!

I want to thank all the committee members for your hard work.  Throughout the afternoon, I heard so  many positive comments  ... "everyone is so friendly"; "I enjoyed it so much, glad I came"; "we need to do this again"; "the food was delicious ... best carrot cake I ever had;" and the list goes on. 

The raffle received rave reviews.  Folks could not believe the "above and beyond" items that were donated and displayed so professionally; thank you Betty and Bill Fussell for your great work and organization in displaying the raffle prizes.  Click here for a list of raffle winners.  We profited about $800 from the raffle alone; we sold six caps; and received a $100 donation towards our 50th reunion in 2014. 

Photos of the reunion will be posted early next week.  So come back and visit.
