Special guests for this month’s show are Paul Schlesinger of Taylor and Sophie Thomason of Rockdale. House band members are Ab Woods, Michael Herod, Michael Wall, Billy Barnett, Will Fountain, Johnny Foster and Lynn Martin.
Come hungry because they will have hamburgers cooked by Bobby Davis known as “Bobby Que” in the Bryan/College Station area and of course their homemade pies.
I wanted to say a special “thank you” to everyone for all the love, support and help given during the loss of Claude’s mom, Norine Lagrone. She was a very special lady and will be greatly missed. “ Nanny,” as her family called her, passed away Friday morning at Renaissance Villa where she had been a residence since the late summer of 2007. Services were held on Sunday at Phillips & Luckey Funeral Home in Rockdale. Burial was held on Wednesday at Symrna Cemetery near Milano, where she was laid to rest next to her husband J.D. “Sonny” Lagrone.
