June 23, 2011 – Salute To Heroes | League City

The Ray Joseph Hutchinson Foundation’s 7th Annual Salute to Heroes Reception was held on June 23, 2011 in the Crystal Ballroom at South Shore Harbour Hotel.  The room was filled with a community of people there to honor our military and to support the fundraisings efforts for scholarship money for the Ray Joseph Hutchinson Foundation.  These scholarships benefit high school seniors from the Clear Creek Independent School District (CCISD) students; to date more than $120,000 has been awarded in scholarships. 

Hero Paintings
Each table featured a truly unique once of a kind centerpiece.  Beautifully honoring our service men and women; each depicts an anonymous Hero who is serving our country.  Deborah paints them in loving memory, of her son, SPC Ray Joseph Hutchinson; her inspiration comes from a collection of military photos, some of which were on Ray Joseph's camera.

Texas Fallen Heroes
Special this year was the display of the "Texas Fallen Heroes Memorial".  This beautiful memorial wall reveals the individual faces of our Texas Fallen Heroes who have paid the ultimate sacrifice on the battlefield; a memorial truly moving to see.
More than 500 faces appear on this wall of honor. The organizers of the "Texas Fallen Heroes Memorial", Gunny Hiles and Gunny George along with their team travel across the state of Texas, bringing the faces of the very young soldiers to all. In the words of General George S. Patton Jr., "It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died; rather we should thank God that such men (and women) lived."

Listen in to Talk of the Bay as we spend some time with Gunny Hiles, Gunny George and Deborah Hutchinson.
Chuck Schneider, Associate Pastor at Sagemont Church, presided as the Master of Ceremonies.  Pastor Schneider brought with him wounded warriors from Brook Medical Military Hospital, in San Antonio.  Our own Eddie Harper, from Wiredin.cc led a very exciting and lively auction.

A sincere thank you goes out to South Shore Grille, Steel Trader’s, Black Rose Steel, and Hometown Bank of League City for their support.
