Schreiner University’s homecoming weekend, Recall, will be hosted April 19-21, 2013, with great events for former students and community members. The weekend really kicks off every year with the Randy Shepler Annual Alumni Golf Tournament at Riverhills Country Club. The 2013 tournament will again have as its major sponsor, Ken Stoepel Ford/Lincoln and tournament proceeds will be donated to the Hill Country College Fund—a Schreiner scholarship fund that benefits students in Bandera, Edwards, Gillespie, Kendall, Kerr, Kimble and Real counties.

Most of the tournament field will be current and former Schreiner students, but community golfers also are welcome. The fee is $125, and the field is capped at 96 players. The tournament will start at 1 p.m., Friday, April 19.

Among the other weekend events will be the annual parade. This year the theme is Schreiner Legends and the Fredericksburg Vintage Car Club will join in. The parade starts at 11 a.m., traveling around the Schreiner University loop clockwise and ending at Robbins-Lewis Pavilion. The public is welcome to attend. After the parade, the vintage cars will be on display near the pavilion and during the Recall Family Picnic.

Also on tap, from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday will be a reception and tour at the Schreiner Mansion, 226 Earl Garrett St. This historical treasure and original home of Captain Charles Schreiner, founder of Schreiner University, is located in the heart of downtown Kerrville. This will be the first showing of items from the University’s Permanent art collection during Recall 2013, The Power of the Pen: A Journey into the Art of Charles Shaw. The artwork presented here represents the wonders associated as the mind visualizes each subject. The subject can be a person, fantasy or words. Each of these comes to life once the pen is placed to the paper. The diversity represented in the works reflects the depth and talent of the artist. The variation of themes including, people, creatures of fantasy and words of wisdom resonate with the wondrous work of the artist as he creates each piece with the pen.

At 11 a.m., on Sunday, April 21, worship services will be hosted at First Presbyterian Church in Kerrville. Schreiner University’s Campus Ministry, Schreiner’s alum and students will lead the regular worship services that day. We invite all alums and guests to join in celebrating our history and strong relationship between the college and the church during the past 90 years.
The Schreiner University dining hall will be closed to the public on Saturday, April 20, but will reopen for brunch on Sunday, April 21.
