By Carolyn B. Edwards BCC Staff Writer

The Texas Exes Texas Independence Day Banquet in Fredericksburg on March 1 will feature a documentary about the survivors and heroes of the 1966 UT Tower shooting.
The banquet will be held at Fredericksburg Inn & Suites, Barons Creek Conference Center at 5 pm.
The film, based on Pamela Coloff's article in Texas Monthly, "96 Minutes," was directed by Keith Maitland with executive producer Luke Wilson. Maitland will speak at the banquet.
Dozens who were on campus that day have been interviewed to share their story, and the search continues. Anyone with a story to share about that day can go to www.towerdocumentary.com.
The banquet is a major fundraiser for Texas Exes and all Texas Exes and friends are welcome. Contact Abigail Jones for tickets and more information at 512-557-2400 or ajones@vintageeventplanning.com. Tickets are $50 per person. There will be a meet and greet cocktail hour afterward at Lincoln Street wine bar.
