Your Reunion Committee has come up with a great package for our 75th Birthday Celebration.  If there are any of you who have not seen the Port Arthur Museum, there is a lot to see.  There is something new every time I go.  And just in case there is a classmate who hasn't attended a Reunion or a class get together, this is your chance.  It's a one day affair and won't take up a lot of your time.

Hi Classmates,

Attached is the “Save the Date” announcement for our 75th Birthday Party. Below is a flyer about the “Hometown Heroes” exhibit currently at the Museum of the Gulf Coast.  It will only be there until May.  Our own Ronnie Thompson and his “Another One Bites The Dust” TJ team from the early ‘80s are given prominent mention in the exhibit. 

We hope you will join us there on April 27th.
