Please Have a Heart!

Our funny Valentine, Isabella, needs surgery! This sweet girl came to SSCFOA in September of last year, barely eight months old, with four kittens, a badly injured joint on her left front leg and a VERY loving spirit. Once her kittens were weaned, we had the injured leg evaluated and learned that Isabella needs something called an “arthrodesis” to fix the joint and allow her to move around pain-free. Isabella was so young, we needed to wait until her growth plates closed, but she will finally be able to have this much-needed surgery in March.

Mirabeau B. Lamar Day, A Salute to Texas' Father of Education

Submitted by San Saba Lodge No. 612 

January 26 is Mirabeau B. Lamar Day, a day to salute the Father of Education in Texas. On that date in 1839, the Republic of Texas Congress passed The Education Act, setting aside land for public schools. It was President Mirabeau B. Lamar, second President of the Republic of Texas from 1838-1841, who successfully argued the importance of public education, and proposed the first actions that laid the foundation for a public school system in Texas.
