It is now officially Fall (not that you would notice by the temperature!) which means we will begin gearing up for the 2018 political season. Our fund raiser, “Food For Thought”, that had been postponed has now been rescheduled for the evening of Friday, January 26th at the Johnnie Arolfo Civic Center. There will be more information to follow. It is going to be a really fun time and I hope everyone will participate.
What a busy time of year; Prom nights, graduations, planning vacations, pools are open, kids are out of school. Hurray for summer!
Other major happenings now are kick-oﬀ get togethers for candidates running for various ofces. I would encourage you to atend as many of these functions as possible to get to know the candidates and understand what it is they stand for. Being an informed voter is the best way to ensure your county, city, and state are heading in the best direction. Besides, they are really fun!
In keeping with the ‘Juneteenth’ theme of this month, we are looking forward to hearing from Mary Smith, GCHC Recording Secretary, speaking about the Black Cowboys on the Chisholm Trail. This is sure to be a very interesting program about a forgotten time in Texas history.
|What a wonderful time Loretta Roberts, Fay Picard and I had at Legislative Day in Austin! There was a sea of red jackets in the House and Senate galleries. It was great talking with like -minded women from across the state. Texas ladies are the best!
Later in the day we got to tour the Governor’s Mansion. We learned lots of history and interesting facts while indulging on delicious sweets and Mansion Ice Tea. We also got our picture taken with Mrs. Abbot! What an extraordinary day.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful moms out there. Blessings to all!
|Spring has sprung! More daylight hours, how wonderful! More pollen in the air, not so wonderful! It seems there are two sides to most everything.
I am so thankful that Donald Trump, a man whose goal is America first, is President of our great nation. It is unfortunate that he must contend with appointees from previous administrations, and those from his own party, who block his every effort to reach his goal. We are a land of differing opinions, but even those people who claim they are conservatives must come together if we are to succeed. America is the most giving, compassionate country on the planet. We welcome people from all over the globe who have come here and chosen to participate in the great American dream.
|I hope everyone had a happy President’s Day. I want to say, SPECIAL good wishes to President Trump! Has any president done so much with so few cabinet members confirmed, ever? And not to mention the non-stop obstruction attempts from the left. I am more and more convinced that we have the right man for times such as these.|
