Youth Center on Las Vacas photos of the Class of 1963
We received this photo, not from the writer Lynn Wright, but from another source asking if anyone can identify who’s in the photo and also if anyone remembers this dance at the Laughlin Base officers club
Raymond Elledge, Class of 1963 asked a question under the thread titled “Teen Hangout’s”:
How and when did Marcy Martin Field and Cody Wardlaw Gym get their names and why?
Does anyone have memories they would like to share of Marcy Martin or Cody Wardlaw?
Share some of your memories of where teen hangouts were when you were in school, be it the 1940's, 50's, 60's and early 70's, along with any incidents that may have occured or taken place at a teen hangout....and photos if you have them.

t’s been a long time since the early 1940's when I was attending Junior High School and Del Rio High School, but I still remember some of the dedicated faculty members who guided me through those years. One person who made an indelible impression on me (several of those impressions were on my rear end) was the Junior High principal, Mr. Brown...known to us as "Willie B." He meted out justice with his paddle indiscriminately but always fairly. In later years at a class reunion I asked him if he remembered me. His joking comment was that he never forgot the backsides that he paddled. The system dictated that male students could choose between detention hall or a lick from his paddle. The girls had only one choice: detention hall.
"We consolidated in 1971-72 school year, however we played football under the Wildcat name, later the consolidated school board changed the name during the spring of 1972 to take effect in 1972-1973 school year. So I consider my senior year 71-72 to be the last year of the Wildcats."
In reading many of the letters sent in about our memories of Del Rio, and enjoying them, I saw that someone mentioned our dear "Juan” or better known as "Necktie Joe”, who walked the streets of south Del Rio, greeting folks at H.E.B., directing traffic along Pecan St or South Main Street, doing odd jobs for anyone who would hire him. He had special needs and a very special heart.
Someone stated that the Arranaga’s stores were located down on Main Street and that also one of the Arranaga’s owned Mr. 15Ë that was on Ave. F and 10th Street.
