Billy Harbinís Speech & Biography

 

 

An excerpt of Billyís Speech

(Editorís note: This excerpt is very brief; more detail will be provided at a later date.)

 

Billy, having spent time as a Rison-Dallas boy, shared a few of his memories, some of which were funny and some that were thoughtful.†

 

He recalled that the Big Ditch was the dividing line between north and south Dallas Village, implying a rivalry between the kids on each side. Those of us who donít remember that division will want to talk with Billy about it; we may have been in danger and didnít realize it!

 

One thing that was very obvious is that Billy is proud of his heritage!
