Brashear Post Mistress Beverly Haygood wanted to say a big “Thank you” to everyone who gave over 730 pounds of food. This was more than last year. This food will go to the local food bank to help those in need.
There was a lot going on around Brashear on Saturday, but I think there must have been a lot going around in the county. We had a very light turn out for the Brashear Bash and made $270. We do appreciate all of you for your support. I know we are thankful for any amount. It will go toward out monthly bills. The Walk for Jesus had a good turnout and want to thank everyone who came out and ran the 5K for Jesus. The youth will be able to purchase fans for people in Brashear who need to keep cool this summer.
I am on a tirade. How many phone books do you have? We receive many phone books every year. But have any of you tried to find some numbers lately? Today, I was looking for Farmer's Electric Coop number to report an outage but the one num- ber I found was disconnected. So I had to find my bill so I could report the outage. Yuck. I was so frustrated. I then wanted to find the number for Douglas School. I could not find the number for any of the SSISD schools. I found the private schools. I wanted to reach them about the early dis- missal. I had several classes that taught how to alphabetize and someone needs to teach basic rules.
We made it through the storms. We received 1.25 inches of rain. We had 3 inches on Thursday and we are very happy. The garden is flourishing and the corn is already rebounding from the wind. Thank you Lord for the rain.
I want to ask if any of you have the problem of cardinals pecking on your windows. We have one reappearing constantly to peck at its reflection. It is beginning to wear on our nerves. Suggestions, please.
I want to thank the organization, P31 Fitness for coming to Brashear. I have met some wonderful women and am sleeping better every night. If you would like to come join us, try it for one night. We exercise Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at 7 p.m. at Brashear Baptist Church Family Life Building.
Thanks to all of you who are sending up prayers up for the Moore community in Oklahoma. We have so much to be thankful for. Please send up prayers for their great strength to come through this disaster.
I would like to let everyone know that we have a new family in the area that moved here from Flori- da. Their name is Ellis and they are excited to be here. If you see someone with Florida license plates, take the time to welcome them here.
Enjoy the cool weather after the humidity the last few days. Busy time of year for everyone and I would like to send congratulations to the graduates of all the area schools. Take care and remember to help out your neighbors. Just take time to give me a call if you have something you would like to share at 903-612-8806; email me at
