*********CONGRATULATIONS*********

On behalf of the South Florida Chapter of the Holmwood Past Students Association I would like to express our sincere congratulations to the recently established Central Chapter. This is a very important step in our development. We stand ready to support you in your projects and fund raising events. It will be hard work but this is a necessary and required step. This provides another desired platform from which to fight the planned restructuring of Holmwood (more on that later). Your efforts will not go unnoticed. My e-mail address is kenrio69@aol.com.
