The 2018 Lone Star Reunion hosted by Norma Moore and Parthena Parrish Newsom was held on Saturday May 26, 2018 at the Flo Community. Moore and Newsom are members of the Class of 1954. It was a huge success.

Everyone enjoyed the fellowship with classmates and friends. Many dressed in costume style like the year they graduated. A delicious meal was catered by Shep?s Bar-B-Q Catering Services of Palestine.

Parthena?s Band entertained the crowd with some wonderful music. Members of the band included Nick Watson, Herbie Roach, Donny Collwell, Jerry Duke, Sherry Duke, Henry Gonzales, Phillip Brown and Dee Blakeley. I am not sure if they have a name or not, but they play the 2nd Saturday of the month at the Buffalo Jamboree held at the Buffalo Community Center.
