White Hall Taxpayers election Oct. 6
White Hall News
The United Way luncheon and “tailgate” event at TAMU was nice. There were many people there, entertainment, games and a lunch. I was appreciative of the invitation and holding that big check for $10,000 that the Grimes Health Resource Center will be given. The Madisonville group was there so I met those ladies too. The WHCVFD was busy selling first Saturday BBQ sandwiches. The ordering line was long for quite a while, as we were having some issues with our credit card square. My assistant, Colton Vickers, had to manually enter the credit card number which took more time. The fire department appreciates all the loyal customers who come monthly to support us. I know that I wrote about the comfort dog that a visitor brought to our church and how the handler told me they took the dogs to Uvalde and were going back. Well, since I watch Forensic Files and those shows on DIRECTV HLN Channel 204, that is what comes on when I cut the TV on again. Earlier this week the news on 204 showed these comfort dogs back at Uvalde on their first day of school and did a short segment on Lutheran Christian Ministries. There are many different handlers in many towns across the State and Wichita Falls was one. If you are interested in donating to the cause, you can email them at LCC@ LutheranChurchCharities. org. Information can be Googled at LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry.
Sept. 16 is a big day in Anderson. There will be a ceremony to honor the WWI monument has been moved to the Justice Center, the beginning of Constitution Week and the 75th anniversary of the American Legion McClusky Post 640. Refreshments will be served.
