On Second Saturday mornings, a smaller group of Team Members go inside the Hobby Unit for  Reunions (2nd Saturday) with the Ladies in White who have attended a Kairos Weekend (2 to 3 hrs).  

The Kairos Community Inside the Walls conducts the Reunion. Team Members are their guests and provide Name Tags, Music and Agape Pages for those attending Reunion. 

Hobby Unit Team Members usually form carpools for the trips from Houston, Bryan/Colllege Station, San Antonio, Austin or Huntsville to Marlin.  Since we must be at the Prison Gate for check-in at 
7:15AM,, it is an early-morning trek with coffee in hand.

Guidelines for Reunion

 Call the Unit at 254-883-5561 to make sure the Unit is not under a lockdown or any other problems that would prevent Reunion.
