HHS Cruise

It was suggested that the Harlingen High School Class of '66 try to gather more often than every 5 years. So, you will find the event I'd like to work on if there is enough interest. Because of the expense involved, I am giving notice early, in time for EVERYONE to save up enough so they can participate.

Your 5 day Mexico vacation begins in Galveston, Texas, just an hour's drive from Houston. The convenience of leaving from this historic Southwest city makes it easy to get away for a few days to see the very best of the Western Caribbean. Start your vacation on Saturday and we'll take you to Cozumel and Calica/Cancun where you'll enjoy beautiful beaches and exciting nightlife. The best part is you'll be back, refreshed and restored in less than a week!

So quit smoking that pack of cigarettes, go on a diet, exercise, and get READY!

If you are interested, be sure you arrange to have a passport or proper identification and start saving your money.
