WEINERT – The homecoming celebration on Saturday Oct. 2 was well attended by Weinert exe’s, families, and friends. 101 attendees registered, with many more attending the different functions.
“The tiny town of Weinert put on quite a celebration for three days,” said organizer Mary Murphy, “and we’re tickled so many people came here.”
Former Mayor Ed Murphy was presented the Citizen of the Year award by the Weinert Homecoming Committee, headed by Penny Patton Puetz. Announcing the award was his daughter Shanna Sellers, assisted by son Lane Murphy.
Celebrating their 50-year reunion were classmates Joe Yates, Caron Guess Yates, Tommy Miller, Judy Gray Hicks, Lee Gray, Nick Jimenez, Debra Struck Richey, and Pauletta Wilfong Bennett.
The parade featured the Hardin-Simmons University Six White Horses, the Haskell Indian marching band, the Weinert fire truck, class floats, and many antique vehicles.
After the parade, Jay Hager’s Barbeque served 80 guests.
More than $3,000 was raised in the silent auction and raffle.
