Fredericksburg Reunion Recap
By Phyllis Wunche, Entertainment Chair
11/21/14

FREDERICKSBURG   2014  REUNION

HUGE SUCCESS

 

How do you spell WOW!     W-O-W-----E-I-E-I-O…….

Those that attended the 2014 Fredericksburg Reunion, hosted by Lamar and Dee Kimble, know firsthand what a great success it was.  The attendance was amazing---189 retired officers, spouses, significant others, family members, and friends.  The meal of fried catfish and trimmings was delicious; fellowship was heartwarming with old partners, classmates, and friends; and the silent auction yielded $3,485 for the Surviving Spouses Luncheon to be held on March 31, 2015.

 

The doors at the Lady Bird Pavilion opened at 8:30am with coffee and donuts.  Attendees saw table after table of donated items and what great items they were.  Everyone gathered and visited with old friends until about 11:30am.  At that time, HPROA President Steve Rayne and Executive Director welcomed everyone; Bill gave an update on the State Legislature and our Pension.  He then recognized Larry Doss, Director of HPOPS, who gave a more detailed update on our pension.  At this time, our President Steve Rayne recognized our host and hostess Lamar and Dee on their 14th year of hosting the Fredericksburg Reunions; this beautiful couple was given an appropriate plaque and gift card for their dedication and hard work.  They certainly have made my job easier as Entertainment chair.

 

After our Luncheon prayer led by Chaplain “Monty” Montgomery and the Pledge of Allegiance, everyone feasted on a wonderful catfish dinner.  As usual with our crowd at this Reunion, it was “all you can eat” and no one went home hungry at the end of the day!!!  Plenty of photos were taken (check our website) by Earl Logsdon and there are even some uniform divisions’ photos of attendees.  Great idea, Earl.

 

Thanks to all that donated many, many items for the auction.  And of course, those that did the bidding and won someone else’s treasures….  Thanks, also, to all the volunteers who helped set up the day before and again assisted during the actual Reunion.

Family Assistance Update
November 2014
11/01/14

Mary Beale: UPDATE  (11-24-2014)  Just got back from a visit with the oncologist.  The rest of the reports have come back “good” from the standpoint of how aggressive this stuff might be.  No current indication that it’s spread but will have to wait to make sure during the surgery. Plan A is to do surgery [a lumpectomy] and that can be done on an outpatient basis and then follow up with radiation as needed then monitor on a routine basis for a good while. We have an appointment with the surgeon to schedule things on December 4th.  Hopefully we can be through with that part before Christmas. Thanks you for your prayers.  They really help.mdb(11-18-14 nf)  Medwin reports that Mary went into hospital last month with abdominal pains. Test revealed a small hernia but also revealed a lump in left breast, irregularities in right breast. Last Friday, they learned of biopsy results which was Invasive Ductile Carcinoma, the most common form of cancer in left breast. The good news was that right breast showed no sign of cancer and doesn't appear to be anywhere else. Mary is now waiting doctors to formulate a treatment plan. We will update when we know those plans. In the mean time, we ask for your fervent prayers as Mary begins those treatments. 

Doug Bostock: UPDATE :(11-24-14 nf) Doug was released from hospital late Sunday and now at home regaining his strength and walking with the aid of a walker. Give him a call at 281-890-7610 and remember him in your daily prayers. (11-22-14 nf)  Doug reports this morning that he has had a set back following his surgery. He is diabetic and after a bad day Friday they kept him overnight. This morning he was not able to stand because his left leg would not support him and not sure what that is about. His breathing seems to be labored. Hold calls today. [More]
