HPD Academy Reunion a Success !

Well, Hello There Everyone!!!!

I think we have recuperated from Saturday.

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!  To all that came out to The Houston Reunion on Saturday February 25, 2017.  We had a total of 202 attendees.  My goal was to surpass last years total of 170.  WE DID IT!!!!  I truly believe everyone that came out had a great time, or that's what several members, came up to us and told us.

I am sorry though, about the temperature at the Academy Gym.  Unfortunately, we had no control over it, it was under lock, and some members said they were cold.    Also our apology to those that waited a little longer in line to get their food, but hopefully you made the most of it by visiting while in line.  There was plenty of food, we did not run out, and it was good.  

We had many generous members that donated items to the Silent Auction as well as some members contributing monetary donations.  The Silent Auction made a total of $2603.00.  Thank you all for your generous contributions, and of course to all members that did some buying.

Of course it would not have been possible without the help of all the volunteers that came out on Friday afternoon to help set up and decorate.  So a Big Thanks goes out to them, and thanks to them a second time for Saturdays help.  They along with many members after the luncheon, stayed and helped with the clean up process.  As the saying goes "Ask and you shall receive".  Well, we asked for help and many members stepped up.  So a big hand goes out to all of you!!!!

I truly hope everyone enjoyed themselves, for Matt and I enjoyed hosting it.  Please, if you have any comments, please post them on our HPROA website.  I encourage it.

Please mark your calendars for the following dates:

Surviving Spouse Luncheon to be held on April 25, 2017 from 10A - 2P at The Houston Racquet Club located at 10709 Memorial Dr. Houston, Texas 77024.  All HPROA members are invited.  The cost is $30.00 per person.  Coat and tie is suggested for the gentlemen.

Fredericksburg  Reunion to be held on October 28, 2017 at the Pioneer Pavilion in Lady Bird Park from 10A - 2P.  I strongly encourage you to make your reservations now,  if you are thinking of attending, for room reservations are becoming scarce as of today.  

Thank you for taking time to read our update.

Matt and Rosalie Potell
