Silver Roses Present
In an old Laredo Times clipping I found among a stack of old pictures, mention is made of an event that took place at Cigarroa High School: Halftime Highlights. The short announcement appeared in a Sunday issue dated September 4, 1983. That day the Cigarroa H.S. Silver Roses were scheduled to perform at 2:00 p.m. in the school's gym.
The reason my family saved this cutout is because of the party announcement on the reverse side. Friends celebrated a birthday earlier in the week and it made the pages of the Times. I just now realized what was on the side that's pictured above.
Back to the Halftime Highlights. The reason this is significant is because Cigarroa High School opened for its first-ever semester on August 1983. The school was just a couple of weeks old and already they were hosting events for the public.
And that's a moment in time.
