Help keep H.E.B. Foundation Camp for senior citizens going

Dear Editor, I would like to say thank you to everyone in Brady who have been so nice and friendly to me. This is the second year that I have driven down here to visit relatives and to go with a senior citizens group to the H.E.B. Foundation Camp, which is located on the Frio River, south of Junction. We are so fortunate to be able to enjoy a few days in such a beautiful and unique setting at a fraction of the normal cost. You have cabins with restrooms and showers, a huge lodge for meals, fun and games or total relaxation, your choice. We always go by the Senior Citizens Center in Junction for lunch, on the way down there and the food there and at the camp is very good. The people at the Junction Senior Citizens Center organize this trip every year, for the first week of November, and the weather is just perfect at this time of the year. Lots of folks in Brady have been going there for years, and I can see why. That’s why I drive down here, from northeast of Amarillo, every year. It is well worth the long drive, and lifts my spirits when I start back home, (knowing I am going back home to another cold, cold winter). the memories from these trips, the people here and all the fun we had keeps me warm. I like this little town of Brady. I like to listen to Tracy on KNEL and “Tradio”. I’ve enjoyed the boat races, singers on the square, the friendly hellos in the interesting little shops on the square and I wonder, “Why don’t we have this in our town'” How can towns be so different’ The answer is: People. Your people are the reason. We have heard the rumors that the annual trip to the H.E.B. camp may be discontinued, if attendance isn’t improved, so I am asking all you folks to think about how you may enjoy this trip too, and help us keep the privilege we now have. It would be such a shame not to go; if only once, and see what a great litle retreat it is. May God bless H.E.B. pantry grocers for building such a great foundation, and many thanks to the Sunset Senior Citizens Center for everything they do to keep this going. PANSY PRINCE Pampa, Tex.
