46th Alumni Reunion Draws Hundreds


La Hacienda 2018 Alumni Reunion Buttons
More than 300 alumni, family members, former staff and guests visited the Hunt campus May 4-6 for the 46th annual La Hacienda Alumni Reunion. Stormy weather Friday morning dissipated just in time for the yearly get together. From registration that afternoon through the alumni meeting on the lawn Sunday morning, conditions were perfect.

Highlights included superb guest speakers, fellowship with old and new friends, sobriety countdown (chips awarded for up to 30 years sobriety), and city group gatherings from Austin, San Antonio, Dallas and Fort Worth.

“The campus was full, and there were many people eager to share their experience, strength and hope,” said Sherri Layton, LCDC, CCS, Outpatient Services Administrator. “It was a blessed time to hear our alumni express their gratitude for their recovery.”

Sherri noted that more than 100 staff assisted at some point during the weekend. “We couldn’t do it without every one of them.”

Audio recordings of the guest speakers will be available for download on our website.

Many thanks to all, especially the volunteers, who made this year’s reunion possible.

It was great to see and hear from those who attended. Start planning now to attend the 47th Annual Reunion on May 3-5, 2019.
