The Mission Historical Museum is in the final stages of preparation for their seventh annual fundraising banquet where six citizens of Mission will be added to the “Wall of Fame.” This is the museum’s annual major fundraiser, benefitting the museum’s education programs, exhibits and landscape maintenance.
The event is set for Thursday, Sept. 12, at the Mission Community Center from 6:30 to 10 p.m. Dinner will be served at 7 p.m., followed by the program, presentations, and a silent auction featuring high-ticket items.
Each year new inductees are honored and added to the “Wall of Fame,” a permanent exhibit showcasing individuals who have significantly contributed to the history of Mission. This year’s recipients are Nancy Shary Cheever, Romulo D. Martinez, Maria Lydia Rodriguez, Joe Roseland and Gustavo and Rosa Zapata.
