Hopefully, some of you have gotten the "Friends" newsletter, El Tejanjo and have seen the many photos of that day. We had a great time.
We saw two young people recieve the Jose Antonio Navarro schoolarship and were told about a great award the "Friends" Organization received from the THC Historical Division for Civic Engagement. Then we were serenade by a High School Mariachi band and meet new Navarro's whom were visiting for the very first time. The food and commradery were great.

We're a week away. Hope your making your plans to attend. Great time to see your ancestral home here in San Antonio, see friends and family and meet new friends and family. We never know just whom we might meet. From past experiences I can tell you that it is a real fun time. We have some beverages and light food items, presentations, awards given; and even some entertainment.
I look forward to visiting with each and every one of you. See you soon.

KING WILLIAM PARADEAnother date for your calendar you will want to mark. April 25th a Saturday is the King Williams Parade. The Parade starts at 9 am sharp on Guenther St. and Eagleland St. and ends on Adams and Eagleland. (see flyer under events for more information)
Casa Navarro is the Grand Marshall this year. We were given this honor by the King Williams Association and will be the first float in the parade.
Now you now this will be a grand parade. Would you like to participate? You will need to fill out a waiver. Contact me for one. Then all you have to do is be dressed in white attire and comfortable walking shoes and be ready to walk behind our float with other family and freinds, for the 2 mile trek. Something all descendants and their children should consider doing. I know they will love it. Show up and lets let San Antonio see just how many of us there are.

We had a great turn out for the meeting. We passed the By-laws
that our committee had been working on for 6 months. The new date for the dues being due was my contribution. I've been attend
JAN's Birthday celebrations for some 20 plus years. I really wanted for people to know that supporting our cause was a good one as they could see by the celebration and all the things our organization does to promote the remembrance of our great ancestor. His Birthday was the logical date for dues to be due.
Our President, Belinda Gavallos told us about the many wonderful things that are happening around Casa, like UTSA building, the San Pedro Creek Culture Park that will give access to visitors to us
from the Creek, and the possibility of a building being built on the land behind the Casa where we can hold meetings. We also had from the State Historical division in Austin talk to us about an award the Friends group is getting for promoting Jose Antonio Navarro. Tickets are available for this
event which will be held in Austin, TX. Anyone wanting to know
more about this can contact me or reach out to the Org. through
our website, friendsofcasanavarro.org Below is a phone taken after the meeting of the three performers from the group Voces Comicas
whom had just finished entertaining us after we adjourned the meeting.
