I received a note from Bob Garrett of Warda, Texas. He and his wife Altha were wishing everyone in the Perrin area a happy new year. Bob graduated from Perrin as one of a class of 13 at PHS in 1951. He is in good health despite going through heart surgery at Texas Heart Institute - St. Luke’s in Houston Oct. 1 to replace a leaking aorta valve. The surgery was successful and his recovery has been going fine. He and his wife Altha have been married since 2004, and live near Warda. They were both living in The Woodlands but after they married moved to a 160-acre farm with a small herd of cattle. Warda is a close-knit (mostly Lutheran) community smaller than Perrin, located halfway between La Grange and Giddings on US 77. Bob's parents were Bill and Louise Garrett and they lived 4 miles southwest of Perrin.
There will be a Chili/Salsa Cook-Off at the First Baptist Church in Perrin on Sunday, Jan. 27 at 6 pm. This is a Fund Raiser for their Youth.
