On March 26, 1973, a Valley Morning Star article read:
"Padre Isle Voters Back Incorporation." The election resulted in 128 of 197 voting to incorporate the town.
Today with more than 2,400 residents, and more than one million annual visitors, SPI will celebrate its 35th birthday April 10-13.
I am really glad this is going to be an annual event. Paragraphs won't be open for the birthday celebration but in future years Matey, we'll look forward to being part of the action.
This year the best I can do is sign on as a Gunner's Mate, and wish everyone a great weekend.
I'll be back later with some good pirate titles to get everyone prepared.
