Dear Alumni and Friends,
The 2017 Annual All Classes Reunion/Convention is approaching rapidly. It will convene July 7, 8, and 9, 2017 at the Alumni Building, located at 2618 Ave C, Bay City, Texas. There will be plenty activities for everyone as we get together to renew friendships and visit with all of our classmates who we may not have seen for some time! This Reunion/Convention focuses on all graduates of Booker T. Washington, AG Hilliard High School and Bay City High School, as well as our legacies!
Yes, this includes your children, grandchildren and any other family members who may not have graduated from these schools but have ties to those who did.
Our theme this year is: “The Difference We Can Make Begins With You” This is exactly what we have tried to accomplish this year. The annual Heritage Banquet was held on Saturday, March 18, 2017.
Our Banquet speaker will be the legendary Coach, Mr. Joe D Washington, now of DeSoto, Texas
By the way, we invite you to support YOUR Association, even if you cannot make it to the Reunion/Convention. We have never had a major mishap to occur in 29 years, so let’s keep our Association strong by making sure that your name remains a permanent part of our history. This can be accomplished by each of you placing a personal add for as little as $25.00, either via a business card or simply a congratulatory note to the Association for keeping our school and community history alive since the closure of Hilliard High School. On the other hand, we would love to get ads from some of your churches, favorite restaurants, banks, family or stores where you shop… even from your city officials!
This is an election year, so in order to vote for incoming officers of your choice, you mustbe a paid member. Membership dues are $30.00 per year. The Reunion/Convention registration is $50.00 per person for the entire weekend activities. Early Registration ends June 17, 2017. This allows us to plan efficiently for your arrival.
If you have any photos, artifacts or a list of former teachers who taught at Booker T. Washington or Hilliard High Schools, please submit those to us for history purposes. We will ensure that you get your photos back, if you so desire. Lastly, but not least, if any of you know of the death of someone since last Reunion, please let us know before the end of June. They will be remembered during the Memorial Services on Sunday, July 7. Also, the schedule of events, hotel and registration information is enclosed for your benefit. Please share this newsletter with others who we may not have an address on in our data base.
