Free Admission to The NE Texas Children’s Museum in Commerce this Saturday

It may not be the Super Bowl, but there will be a Super Saturday with free admission to the Northeast Texas Children’s Museum on Saturday, Jan. 29. The Museum is taking this opportunity to offer free Saturday admissions to thank Northeast Texas for the support given the Museum in 2010.

The population of Commerce is about 8,000. The Museum recorded almost 19,000 visitors in 2010

This last year the Museum has added or upgraded several new exhibits. Commerce Veterinary Clinic sponsored a very popular veterinary exhibit. Brookshire’s Grocery sponsored a newly renovated grocery area. Steven Pallow, owner of the train exhibit, has just added a train crossing sign with lights and a horn. A fort replaced a rain forest exhibit. Additional changes to the Museum’s exhibits will occur this year.

The Museum encourages visiting children to participate in making a paper chain for 2011. Different color links will represent visitors each month. The Museum hopes to have more than 19,000 links in the chain by the end of 2011. The Northeast Texas Children’s Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Except for the Super Saturday, admission is $5 for children two and over and $2 for adults. Family, grandparent and student memberships are also available.

Northeast Texas Children’s Museum Hosts Third Annual Daddy/Daughter Dances

The third annual Daddy-Daughter Dance will be at the Northeast Texas Children’s Museum on Saturday, Feb. 5. The Daddy-Daughter Dance is a time to make a young lady feel special. Such a time strengthens bonds between a young girl and her daddy, granddad, uncle, brother or other male relative. Girls cement these memories in their minds forever. Activities throughout the Museum will be a part of the evening. The music will be dad-friendly for daddy-daughter dancing. The food continues to be a highlight of the evening.

This major fund-raiser for the Northeast Texas Children’s Museum helps to meet its mission of inspiring imagination. The advance ticket price will be $30. On Feb. 5, the day of the event, tickets will be $35. A ticket for additional girls in a family will be $10. “The special event for young ladies in the area will be a dream for some who cannot afford to attend,” stated Sharline Freeman, Museum executive director. “You can make a dream come true by donating one or more sponsorships for attendance of a young girl with her dad.”

Donations for the evening’s special activities allow the Museum to do more for young visitors from all over Northeast Texas. Large hearts throughout the Museum will recognize these special donations.

Business of the Week

Congratulations to the Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce Business of the Week:


Tully Insurance Agency
109 Jefferson Street
Sulphur Springs, TX 75482
Jason Tully

Tip of the Week: “As of January 1 of this year the state required minimum limits of liability on auto insurance to go from $25,000/$50,000 to $30,000/$60,000. What does that mean for the everyday citizen? Well, if they get in an auto accident, and it is their fault, then they have the $30,000 limit to pay for that person that they injured to go to the hospital. The other half of that limit, which is $60,000, is in the event that there were other passengers in that vehicle. So for example if I were to get in an accident with a family of 4 and it caused serious injuries to the entire family and they had to be air lifted to the nearest hospital, I only have $60,000 to cover the entire bill, if I only carry the state required minimum limits of liability.

Many folks who have been in an accident that did require someone to be air lifted will testify that just the helicopter ride alone is upwards of $10,000.

We at Tully Insurance Agency strongly encourage everyone to consider the costs of hospital care these days and offer them the higher limits of liability. In nearly every case, you’re looking at, maybe, $5 more a month in your bill to double the coverage you have.

So if you are not sure what you do have, feel free to give us a call or come by and sit and visit for awhile. We would love to take a look at your insurance for you, and show you what there is available!

I’m here to serve you as well as our country!”

Jason Tully, owner

That’s all for now…have a GREAT week!
