Class of 1982
whole class... there were a few of us that could get real comfortable and that was a help because it lightened up the rest of us. I had gone to 6 schools prior to this one, being my mother had married a couple of dead beats in her early life, but She met Tommy Weeks and he adopted me at 17... I finally had a father and a name of which I could be proud of. He brought me out of my shyness, and prepared me for life. If it had not been for the small school experience and my adoptive Father, Tommy Wayne Weeks, I would have probable just faded into the woodwork. The small school provided me with enough of caring Teachers that guided me and the small town with the intimacy of knowledge besides being in a tiny Baptist Church and it's Christian Values helped me not make too many mistakes, between the students, teachers and community, I had a great people that God had placed in my life to keep me from making bad decisions. Even in a very protected community with everyone knowing everyone's business... I found it to be a very healthy thing and it kept me aware and respectable and honest. Today, I am in my 40's and have been married for 25 years this November 2010. I own and operate a small family business for 12 years in a Angleton, where I have lived for nearly 16 years. Before that I was a stay at home mom, and before that I was a commercial artist. I do not paint much anymore, on occasion my family will stand in for me at work so I can go
paint murals on location. I still love Jesus, I thank the good Christians in Danbury for loving me enough to share Jesus. I still love Danbury, Texas, and I thank that small town for all the rumors I heard about others kept me from messing up my life, because I did not want to ever be a part of negative rumors... the town is loving enough to help those listening to learn not to make grave mistakes worth gossiping about. I thank the Danbury School Faculty for sound council. And the classmates are like family, when one of hurts we all hurt. We have lost a few, and a few of ours have lost their children, we hurt for them, when you are a small class, you become close enough to hurt for one another when the other hurts. I thank Danbury, Texas for the opportunity to experience small town life, and small town ways that makes my daily life as a Christian, a wife, a mother and business owner very thankful for the traditions that were passed on to me. I am involved in the Danbury Alumni Association today. The association has raised funds for
several organizations that organizes the Pantherpalooza Fall Festival every November.
If you want to get to know the citizens of Danbury, Participate in the Red White and Blue and the Pantherpalooza Fall Festival events each year, and you will find people who want to help people, real people who make a difference. I am just one, but there are many who really do appreciate the Danbury School, and the Heart of Danbury's community. I was an outsider, but the love of this community made me one of their own.
I miss the Pep Rallies, I miss the three stall bathroom in the high school that was always empty and wonderfully private somehow... I miss the one hall high school, I miss all of it.
We celebrate our high school reunions at the Pantherpalooza Events... there were 28 of us to graduate, and even with our losses, we still manage to have about 14 of us us show up every year..... that is not a bad ratio. There are many of us from the class of 1982 living in the area. It is always something I look forward to seeing as many of them as I can every year at the Pantherpalooza Fall Festival Event each November.
