ThrowBackThursday Treasures...

I have been going through some old boxes, and have found some treasures.

Look at this announcement I found....

You open the announcement....


And here is a picture in the WESLACO NEWS!!!



And I found this song book...
My dad became a Gideon in the sixties, and would have Peggy and me sing at some of the Rio Grande Valley Gideons' meetings in McAllen when we were in high school. We were never too keen on going to those meetings since they were at 6:30 on Saturday mornings.
Ah, but now I'm glad we did that.

 If you don't know what a Gideon is, click HERE to go to their website.
And/or you can read Wikipedia's explaining the Gideons by clicking HERE


I also found this plaque....
It commemorates my dad's service as Rotary Club president in Mission, TX, 1970-1971.

And I found this!
Peggy decorated this sweatshirt for our mother soon after Laura was born (1986)!
Those are the names of Mother's grandchildren.
Isn't that great?!

So those are some treasures for today!
I sure do love them!
