There was a Hitt-Duncan family reunion in the Dora Community Building last Saturday. Leon Hitt got it all arranged and there were 116 registered for the day. The Wagon Wheel Cafe catering service brought the food out from Portales and served it at noon.
Several of those present were raised in the Garrison, Causey, Richland, Rogers, Pep, Milnesand and Longs areas. The Hitts who were present were Leon and his wife, Patsy; T.D. and Butch Harvey; Freda Walker and her husband; J.T. and Lillie Bell Toombs; Adelle and Kirby Talley; Joe Duncan of Weatherford; Freida Slone, Ila Mae and Buck Smith, all of San Angelo; Donna and Benny Victor of Portales; T.Z. Duncan and Helen Jones of Portales; Mary and J.C. King of Artesia.
There were a few others who come by for a short time. Donna and Benny Victor served a delicious supper on Friday evening to some of them. After a day of visiting and remembering T.Z., Freida and Helen took a drive out by the old home place near Richland and another near Garrison and o to Causey by T.Z.’s home place.
