Dear Classmates:
We will be celebrating our 65th Homecoming October 5th with Classes of l952 and 1954 as we have done previously.

Our headquarters will be at the Hangar 25 museum. We are so excited to be in this historical location since Webb AFB was such a part of our history. The museum board has done a fantastic job of preserving the history of the base with pictures, artifacts, planes, etc.

Friday night for those interested we will gather at the Spanish Inn before the football game. Will advise at a later date if there will be a reception at the college following the game. Also details concerning the Homecoming parade float and the cost of catered meals, etc will be forthcoming.

Following is a listing of the hotels available with their phone numbers and estimated costs (plus tax). None can guarantee rates this far in advance until you book a reservation. These are rooms for two. You will note we have many more than we used to! This is to give you an idea of what’s available. Homecoming two years ago some of our classmates had to get rooms in Midland because of the oil boom.

We will provide coffee, tea, water and lite munchies. No lunch will be provided.  There will be lite munchies in afternoon
Would like to take pictures at 5:00 pm then evening meal and program following.
As soon as we tie down the caterer and know how many attended last year we will have the cost available.
We will have a table available for each class to display items for their class.
Lane:  Will you please take the group picture again this year?  And remember to bring the appropriate cord so that you will be in the picture?
