Unfortunately, I have some sad news to pass along. Hugh Rouse, well-known proprietor of Sugar Land's drug store, died a few weeks ago. He had very interesting stories to tell. I don't know how many people knew he was a Navy pilot in the Korean War. My sincerest condolences to his extended family. Here is an obituary.
I was unaware until very recently that Dorothy Vavrecka (Bartosh) Raska (SLHS '46) passed away last month. My best to Theresa (DHS '68), Marion (DHS '69) and the other members of Mrs. Raska's family. Here is an obituary.
On Sunday afternoon, May 15th, the Sugar Land Heritage Foundation will have a Scavenger Hunt fundraiser. Last year's event was a big success. I was on Bill Little's team, and WE WON! The photo below shows sponsors. Click on the image to see details about joining the fun, or call the SLHF at 281-494-0261.
