All systems go for Library Gala Thursday

From Staff Reports

March 26, 2008 - Thursday's weather forecast does not call for snow, so it's all systems go for the Gala Luncheon hosted by the Friends of the Sulphur Springs Library.

"We originally scheduled our annual Gala Luncheon for Friday, March 7," said Library Director Cheryl Lawson. "Who knew we'd wake up that morning to a snow storm?"

Authors Patsy Hallman and Bill O'Neal will be the featured speakers, as previously planned.

Hallman, a native of the Miller Grove community and the former dean of education at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, is the author of numerous books. O'Neal is a Texas historian, lecturer and True West Magazine's award winner for Best Living Non-Fiction Writer, 2007.

The benefit begins at 11:30 a.m. with a catered lunch. Tickets to the catered affair are $20. Tickets which were purchased for the original gala affair and dated March 7 will be honored at the door.

For more information or to reserve tickets, call the Sulphur Springs Public Library, located at 611 North Davis St., at 903-885-4926.
