Things still green in Post Oak

In and Around Post Oak

Here it is summer time and the yard is green and lush as spring time.  The rains have made for cooler weather but summer is here now with rising temperatures.  Those 100 degree days will dry things out quickly.

The cats have been lazy and sleep during the warm part of the day and wait to play until it gets cooler in the early evening.  I’m like the cats and would rather work or play in the cool of the evening.

Thursday the quilters met to quilt on a quilt for Nelda Hopkins.  Those attending were: Clydene Webb, Elsie Graham, Nelda Hopkins, Nancy Conner, Gena Phillips, Eunice Frost, Helga Cross and Wanda Davis.  Everyone brought a different salad for the pot luck lunch.

Following quilting, Nancy Conner, Nelda Hopkins and Wanda Davis drove to Bowie for a reception honoring The Post Oak Busy Bees at The Bowie Public Library. Beth, the librarian for the Bowie Public Library, had invited the Busy Bees to display their challenge wallhanging quilts at the library during the month of July.

Each quilter was given three pieces of fabric to be used in their wallhanging creation.  Seven members participated this year and the quilts will be hung again during The Busy Bee Quilt Show in Post Oak on Sept. 29 and 30. 

 Several other Challenge Wallhangings from past years are also on display along with the 2017 Donation Quilt.  The red, white and blue Lone Star Over Texas will be given away on Saturday, September 30 at 4 p.m. at The Busy Bee Quilt Show.

The public is invited to come by the Bowie Public Library during normal operating hours to view the creative fabric art display.  The Busy Bees would also like to thank Beth and the library staff for their work hanging the quilts and giving the Busy Bees an opportunity to display their creations.

The Busy Bees hope people are getting quilts ready to display at The Busy Bee Quilt Show in Septermber.  Quilts can be brought to The Post Oak Community Center on Wednesday, Sept. 27 betweem  the hours of 10 am until 12 noon.  For more information call 940-567-2771.

Thursday night approximately 25 members of The Post Oak Crime Watch met for a Pot-Luck supper at Post Oak Community Center.  The president, Will Mangum, called the meeting to order with a prayer and pledge of allegiance to the flag.  Jack County law enforcement gave a report.
