Brashear News for Feb. 9, 2011

E-mail Print PDF
Brashear News is back! Yes, you’re in for some fascinating news.

A few community members are interested in refurbishing the Community Center and we are so excited about the plans.

I previously mentioned some upcoming events, and it is time again for one. On Saturday, April 2, we are hosting the first annual Brashear Bash.

The Brashear Bash is a community garage sale, somewhat like the Dike Miles of Garage Sales in the fall. Before the planning goes any further, we would like some feedback from other community members.

Our plan is now to have a Garage Sale/Hamburger Fundraiser/Plant Swap on the grounds of the old ball field in downtown Brashear. You would pay $5 for a spot on the ball field or table inside of the Family Life Center at the Baptist Church. If you want to have a garage sale at your house, you would pay $5 to have maps at the ball field for people to get directions to your sale. You will be expected to set up and clean up your spot. The hamburger sack lunch would start around 10:30 am and continue until noon.

Our questions are as follows:

(1) Do you feel this would work?

(2) Would you be willing to have a spot or give $5 for a map to your sale?

(3) Do you have any questions or suggestions that will help get this off the ground?

We are truly excited about this and want to get feedback from those of you who live in Brashear. Please call Carolyn Vaughan at 903-582- 2269, Linda Almon at 903-994-2992, or myself at 903-612-8806, or e-mail me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

I guess you all know what time it is — planting time! Get your onions and potatoes in the ground. Tom’s grandmother always said that a little snow seasoned your garden items. She especially said that about English peas. We hope to get our potatoes in the ground before Monday, Feb, 14, but it sure will be muddy (the hazards of gardening in East Texas). Just glad we do not live on black soil like we did in Bogata and Rockwall. That mud would suck your shoes right off your feet!

This weather has been interesting this past week, and it looks like Wednesday is going to be more of the same. Be careful out there. If you know of anyone that is alone, call them and make sure they are warm, fed, and have electricity and water. There seem to be a lot of frozen pipes after last week.

Thanks for asking when Brashear News was coming back. Be sure to call me with information you would like to share. Stay warm.
