There is much more waiting to be posted ~ I apologize for
not getting it all done in December. We have some new
members and more obits waiting to be posted. We have
received some really nice donations towards our "Wish
List."

I have a special request. I am still looking for early
editions of the Tampico Tornado newspaper - anything before
1927. We have most years, but we are missing scattered
issues. Please check you atticks, garages, barns and
basements - watch at garage sales, or estate sales. We also
need early editions of the P-town Echo or Spike
(1850s-1950s). Thank you so much.

Please note that the HY&T video is now only availabe as a
DVD. It is the same price of $20+ s/h. Thank you.

For those who have asked - the Tampico Centennial Year
Books are available on 2 CDs. They also include two indexes
- One for photos and one for articles. Price is $15+ s/h.
