The schedule below was a preliminary draft, but is pretty close.
One of our 2010 Texas reunion hosts, Rick Featherston, was interviewed in March 2010 by a local television station. They did a nice job providing a brief introduction of some of the great places and materials we will share during the reunion. We invite you to check out this three minute video interview (Click the video player link showing the cabin on the right side of the page)

Sunday, June 20th
Sunday is optional, for those who want to stay over.  Enjoy a casual breakfast of rolls, coffee, and juice as we gather mid-morning at the home of Rick and Janie Featherston in West Tyler.  Enjoy their beautiful home, along with a newly restored historic cabin on the property.  This morning session will be of particular interest for those who want to see and learn more about the documents dubbed as the 'oak box collection'.
