Important Info About a Friend

Many of our Band Family know Mark Palacios as an officer of the O’Connor Athletic Booster Club, as a parent, as an always smiling  near-constant presence around campus and at football games, as a great supporter of the Panther Band, and as the designer and manufacturer of a lot of our Band Booster clothing and merchandise.  Unfortunately, Mark suffered a stroke a few days ago and is hospitalized.  We all need to keep the Palacios family in our thoughts and prayers and hope for a speedy recovery.  

To help out and to show our support, the Band Boosters are invited to a BBQ fundraiser at Cooter Brown’s Saloon (Bandera Road and 1604 in the Silverado Theater Shopping Center) NEXT Sunday, February 8th, from 2:00 ’til 5:00 PM.  Suggested donation is $10.00 per plate.  If you want to contribute food or supplies to the effort to help maximize the fundraising, please contact Mickey R at 823-5089 — they need meat, potatoes, serving items, et cetera — but please call Mickey before buying anything to coordinate the donations.  

Also, on Tuesday, February 10, Bahama Buck’s Shaved Ice will host a fundraiser from 6:00 ’til 10:00 PM at their location at 8910 Bandera Road.  

Again, Mark is a terrific friend of the Panther Band, an amazing source of information and suggestions, and we all wish him a speedy recovery.
