2015 Marks the Collegeport Community’s 107th YEAR

 

Dear friends of Collegeport,

 

We cordially invite you and your family to join in celebrating Collegeport Day on Saturday, May 30, 2015 at the Mopac House.    Our traditional BBQ dinner will begin at 12:00 noon.  Please bring side dishes and desserts to complete the meal.

 

Collegeport Day is the longest-standing annual celebration in Matagorda County.  This commemoration of the community’s founding has been observed every year since 1908. 

 

Barbecue preparations begin mid-afternoon on Friday and continue until dinnertime on Saturday.  Come and experience this tradition as well!

 

Volunteers who assist with set-up of tables and chairs on Saturday morning, and with clean-up after dinner, are GREATLY APPRECIATED!

 

Contributions to the barbecue fund, or for other needs, make it possible to continue this community tradition.  Additionally, your support of the Mopac House Foundation enables this board to carry out its mission of maintaining the Mopac House and grounds for the use and benefit of the community.  The generosity of all who give financial support, as well as those who give of time and talents, make all of this possible.

We extend a grateful “THANK YOU” to all supporters.

 

Post cards notify those for whom we have no e-mail address.  Please share this information with all of your family and friends interested in attending and/or being involved.

2014 Marks the Collegeport Community’s 106th YEAR

Dear friends of Collegeport,

We cordially invite you and your family to join in celebrating Collegeport Day on Saturday, May 31, 2014 at the Mopac House.    Our traditional BBQ dinner will begin at 12:00 noon.  Please bring side dishes and desserts to complete the meal.

Barbecue preparations begin mid-afternoon on Friday and continue until dinnertime on Saturday.  Come and experience this tradition as well!

Volunteers are encouraged to assist with set-up of tables and chairs on Saturday morning.  This helps relieve those who prepare in the days and weeks prior to our annual homecoming from the last-minute tasks. 

Contributions to the barbecue fund or for other needs enable our long-standing community Collegeport Day tradition to continue.  Please contact us if you or your family would like to participate in this way.   

Post cards notify those for whom we have no e-mail address.  Please share this information with all of your family and friends interested in attending and/or being involved, in case we have overlooked someone.
