Our Scholarship Banquet 2011!  So much fun! Coach Trooper Taylor was fantastic! Entertaining and informative.  Now we all know why he wears his cap backwards.  The auction was a great success as we raised several thousand dollars for the Charles D. Hudson Memorial Scholarship.

When Auburn People get together good things happen!

Hudson Memorial Scholarship Banquet.  Make plans to join us, May 7th at the Del 'avant in LaGrange, GA.  Festivities begin at 6:00 PM, EST.  There are sure to be fun stories, great auction items and as they say... a "fun time" to be had by all!!  WDE!!
