The Hughes Family State of Affairs for 2002
1517 Aylesbury Ln, Plano TX, 75075

(972)423-8611 -


I continue to work for Rockwell Collins. Beverly is the Pastor at First Presbyterian Church Commerce Texas. David is a High School Math Teacher in Plano Texas. Sara is an Accountant for Perkins, Dexter, Sinopoli & Hamm PC in Richardson Texas.

I feel like the spectator at a Roller Derby this year. Things have been moving fast & furious for most of the family. I've just been watching it all move along.

The biggest news is that David and Elaine Park are engaged and are planning to be married in Oct. 2003.

The second biggest news is that Beverly is now the Head Pastor at First Presbyterian Commerce. She has an apartment there and we visit each other on our days off.

David has switched from teaching in Allen TX to teaching in Plano TX. The two cities are adjacent but he is a little closer to home.

Beverly and Sara went on a European vacation aka choir trip through England, Scotland, and Ireland.

Sara continues to work to be a licensed CPA in Texas. The reciprocity between Iowa and Texas isn't good.
