HOBO PARTY —Those Palacios High School seniors attending had a wonderful time.  The selfie scavenger hunt and the box game were the highlights of the party.  Senior class sponsor, Jason Miller (PHS Ag. Teacher) and senior parent and church member Cyndi Alvarez  reminisced about attending the hobo party during their senior years. The party ended with a devotional given by Rev. Kathy Vineyard.  Ceramic hobos prizes for the best dressed hobos. This year the best dressed guy was Josh Garcia and the best dressed girl was Marissa Figueroa. A big thank you to Patty Frankson for always doing a great job on the ceramic hobos. The main winner of the night for the annual box game was Sam Shulman who received the cash at the center of the box.  THANK YOU! to everyone who donated or otherwise helped  make this a success, and we look forward to next year.        Peace in Christ, The Mission Committee
