After many years with the City of El Paso Parks and Recreation Department, El Paso icon Wayne Thornton announced his retirement earlier this year.
His involvement with the city’s successful public sporting programs have made Wayne a household name, as well as his famous catchphrase ‘Stay Nice as Rice and Mello as Jello.’
On Thursday, February 27, friends, family and coworkers all showed their appreciation for Wayne and his career.
Our very own Johnny Yturales was at the celebration and we bring you his view of the fun via this gallery.
