Out and About

Christmastime

 

 

I f you were bored this past weekend, it wasn’t for the lack of events to enjoy. What with the various happenings in Charlotte, Pleasanton and Jourdanton – Santa was one busy man! The weather was mild (almost on the warm side) and folks came out to the weekend happenings. See the list of winners and photos of the bike, pet parade and lighted Posse parade winners.

Christmas Bazaar

Katie Schuchman and the members of the Jourdanton United Methodist Church have been planning for their salad luncheon and bazaar for a while. It will be held at the Jourdanton Community Center from 11- 1:30. See the story on this page for more info!

70th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor

The bombing of Pearl Harbor began the Pacific Theatre of World War II 70 years ago today. At the urging of my beau, we visited the renactment of one of the wars at the Admiral Nimitz Museum in Fredericksburg last month on Veterans Day.

Both of our fathers served there. Mark’s was a gunner and my dad was in the Army.

Looking at the young men in the group – many of them volunteers from the neighboring ROTC groups I couldn’t help but think that many of our soldiers were around the same age….18- 20 year olds. Such babies…
