A Special Thank You 
I would like to extend our thanks and appreciation on behalf of the Martin Palmer/Parmer family to the people of San Augustine, Texas for all of your help and support during our recent family reunion.

The citizens of San Augustine went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed.  We basically had the whole town at our disposal.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, not just the rich history of the town, but also the friendliness of the people who live and work there.
A special thanks to Mr. Lavon Tindall for the tour and helping to organize our reunion, Ms. Liz Ware with the San Augustine Civic Center for all her help contacting people and facilities, Rev. Dave Avis and the First Methodist Church for use of their facilities, Ms. Mary Kay for providing meals, Budget Inn and San Augustine Inn for lodging, Mr.Brad Haley and the Chamber of Commerce for the warm welcome, our guest speaker Mr. Harry Noble for the presentation and pamplets on Martin Palmer and the local print shop.
The whole community is to be congratulated on the way they rallied together to welcome visitors.  We will always remember San Augustine as the small town with the big welcome.
