My fondest memories about Humble in Baytown were all the great times we had at the Community House A big portion of our entertainment was there.

My father, Pete Bull, came from the farm in Evant, Texas, to go to work at the new plant. It proved to be the foundation of our lives. He worked there for well over forty years.

The Community House was where we had Humble Day. It was the big celebration for employees and their families. We had our school dances, recitals, weddings and baby showers there.

In the summer we could play ping pong upstairs and use the View Masters downstairs in the library. We could play tennis on the courts outside.

Life was different then and Humble provided us with the carefree existence we took for granted. It was a wonderful time to grow up. It was also a great place to live. We were so lucky,
