Hello! Hello!! I want to remind all you Cubs & Cubettes out there about the Homecoming festivities THIS Friday!! ALL past Academic & Athletic STATE-WINNING teams & individuals will be recognized! Not only that, but the current RTC Varsity Boys & Girls Basketball Teams will play the ALUMNI!!! I CAN'T WAIT to watch it!!! FOR REALS.... Girls game starts at 6pm & the boys game will follow. My bet goes with BOTH ALUMNI teams. I bet they can whip those young WHIPPERSNAPPERS into shape :). Following the BOYS game - the HOMECOMING festivities will begin. Good luck to ALL!
Then....I hope you all come out THIS SATURDAY for the 2012 Round Top - Carmine Round Up! This event is being put on by the Round Top - Carmine Education Foundation (401(c)3) and ALL proceeds will go towards RT-C ISD. One of the main focuses this year is the implementation of a school BAND & MUSIC department & growing the ART program!
SOCIAL hour & TRICK-HORSE show provided by Dan Keen Jr. will kick it all off at 4PM!
There will be a LIVE auction. Uncle MELE (Mel -E) aka. Melvin & myself will be your AUCTIONEERS!!!! We have some AWESOME ALUMNI volunteers helping out as well and just one HECK of a crew that have gathered items & worked out all the nuts & bolts of the operation of things.
I URGE YOU ALL TO DONATE SOMETHING TO THE AUCTION....if you have not done so already. We have a FANTASTIC start, but every little bit helps! There will also be a SILENT AUCTION! You can drop the items off @ The ELEMENTARY in Round Top OR @ The RIFLE HALL Friday evening OR Saturday Morning!
I hope you got your TICKETS for the MEAL! There will be a VERY limited amount (if ANY) available @ the door. It's gonna be YUMMY BBQ Chicken & Sausage!
FOLLOWING the AUCTION will be LIVE Music provided by Charles & the FaBuLOUS 4!!
COME ONE, COME ALL!! Let's get FIRED Up & have a BALL!
