Milano Exes’ reunion, homecoming set

The annual Milano Ex-Students Association reunion will be held on Saturday, Oct. 23 at the MHS cafetorium. Doors will open at 10 a.m. The noon barbecue meal will be catered by The Crossing. Plates will be $10.

Due to scheduling conflicts, the homecoming football game will be held Friday, Sept. 10.

The Association is again taking donations for the silent auction. Items can be brought the morning of the reunion. All donations are appreciated.

All proceeds go for mailing costs and scholarships. We would like to have items for a live auction, too.

We are now taking applications for our Fall Mini Scholarships. All MHS graduates who have at least one year (two semesters) of schooling and are enrolled for this fall are eligible. Please call Carolyn Hafley at 512-455-2473 or email carolynhafley@live.com and we will mail, email or fax you an application and get your name on the list.

This year we are proud to have Ann Hashem Kraft attend the reunion not only as an ex-student (class of ‘88) but as a published author. Ann has written “The Opera Ghost Lives.”

If you ever wondered what happened to the characters in the Phantom of the Opera, Ann has written a romantic but suspenseful novel that answers that. She will have her books available for sale and she will be glad to sign them too.

We encourage all classes to find the time to get together and renew old friendships. It’s fun and rewarding. Our MHS Exes’ reunion brings in funds to help our kids achieve their goals. Make plans to attend and if you can’t, try to make a donation and add to our scholarships.

Flyers for the reunion will be mailed out Sept. 1.–Carolyn Hafley, secretary
