Letter of Interest- Class of 1967

Dear Class of “67” we are having a 50th class reunion coming up on Saturday June 3rd.at 11:00 a.m. The reunion will be at Rancho Nuevo in Teague, Texas on Hwy 84 right out of Teague going towards Mexia. The restaurant is located on the left side of the road going towards Mexia.  I have reserved a private dining room just for our class. Your spouses are welcomed.  Everyone will be paying for their own food so you can order whatever you want. They have other choices of food in case you don’t like Mexican Food.  It is a very good place to eat.  The cost of the reserved room is $65.00 and there will be a 50th class reunion cake as well.  We will all need to donate some money to pay for the reserved room and the cake.  There might be enough money in our class fund to cover it but we still have to replace what we take out. There will also be the cost of the stamps, invitations, and envelopes to mail.  Please try to come as it will be so nice to see all of you.  Fifty years is a long time and we only have one to celebrate.  Hope to see you all!!!  Please RSVP as I need a count of who is coming.
