Houston High School held its homecoming festivities Friday, which included a parade and coronation at Tiger Stadium.

The Houston Alumni Association held activities Saturday in conjunction with the event.

Community activities occurred at Roby and Raymondville. An event to benefit the Houston School District was Saturday at Romines Motor Co. The Houston Rural Fire Department hosted a motorcycle poker run Saturday.

The alumni association held two gatherings – a Saturday breakfast at the Houston Senior Center and a mixer at Hiett Gymnasium. A short program began that afternoon with alumni updates and a scholarship fund. Larry Holder was the master of ceremonies. The Houston Community Foundation also had a display at the mixer. It asked alumni to donate a $1 for each year since graduating.

Some classes also held reunions. A full roundup of pictures will appear in Thursday’s newspaper.

The Houston Lions Club hosted a luncheon in the community building that featured a fish fry at the Houston Area Chamber of Commerce Fairgrounds.


On Friday, winners of the float competition were named: Freshmen class, first; sophomore, second; and junior, third. 

The bike decoration contest went to Reese Wilson. Erma Adams won the poster contest.
