To the Heirs of Ballí Spanish Land Grants
Ballí Book and Reminder of Wind Farm Protest

Rene Escobar on Sunday, June 29, 2008, Author of, "The Ballí Family-Reynosa & Matamoros" will present a Power Point presentation of our book to the Museum of South Texas History between 2-4 PM. Rene will host a talk and book orders can be taken at that time. He has previously written five other well selling books. You are welcomed to come see a preview of the book’s content and meet Mr. Escobar. Below is the address and phone number to the museum:

Museum of South Texas History

This is a reminder that the rally is scheduled for July 6, 2008, at 2:00 PM. We will assemble at the rest area on US-77; it is about 6 miles south of Sarita. From there we will caravan to the location of the rally. Family and friends are asked to bring their own provisions, plenty of water, sun umbrellas, insect repellent and lawn chairs. "Don’t litter", please place the trash in its proper place. See previous update for more specific information and map to the gathering area.

A few comments have been received from the last update. Some of the Abuela’s out there said they do not want to stay home with the grand kids. They want to be out where the action is and be part of the protest. One of them has the sign made and her car full of gas ready to go. That’s what I call a Ballí on a mission with an added punch. I hope you are ready as she is. Please make arrangements for someone else to keep your children.

The best banner or sign will be awarded $200. The winner will be chosen by the most votes received at the rally. Now is the time to make a difference and let the public know of the injustices done to the family by the Kenedy Memorial Foundation. Get your posters ready!

"We are worthy of Justicia!"

Respectfully yours,
Fred B. Ballí
