Things are hopping here in Brashear. First, I hope everyone has take note of how nice The Olde Store looks with is new paint job. Janet, you did good. Gives a little life to downtown Brashear.
This past weekend we got to work on our garden. Potatoes and onions are in the ground. Tom wanted to get more DONE but the rain on Sunday kept him from planting.
Everyone needs to go to the Civic Center sometime Friday or Saturday for the Northeast Texas Livestock Association Show. Our area youths will have their projects on display. It is always fun to go and see just who has raised chickens, hogs, goats or calves for this year’s show. Our youths need to be commended, as a lot of work goes into their projects.
The Sulphur Springs Library is holding a book drive. If you have any books that you would like to donate, you are welcome to bring them to the Senior Citizen's Center and we will get them to the library for you.
