Ken and Texie Cole moved to Richland Springs in 1962 to pastor the First Christian Church. With them was their baby daughter, Sylvia Tracey Cole, who was 2 ½ months old. While living in Richland Springs, the Coles made many friends and became very active in the community. The couple began a "Teen Canteen" where youth of all denominations could meet on Saturday nights for food, games, dancing, and fun. The couple also began a youth choir from all denominations that sang locally and also traveled to other towns to perform. Texie Cole started the first Head Start Kindergarten of Richland Springs in 1963 and taught in that position until 1968. While in Richland Springs, they added to their young family with the birth of son, Colby. As Texie continued to teach, Sylvia Tracey began kindergarten as one of her mother’s students. Later, the Cole family moved to Ruidoso, New Mexico, where Sylvia Tracey graduated from high school in 1980. Ken Cole passed away from complications of heart surgery in 2004. Texie Cole now lives in Virginia, but their daughter, Sylvia, is now all grown up, and she and her husband, Wade Sheets, will soon be heading to Asia. Sylvia and Wade will be speaking Sunday, October 3rd at the First Christian Church in Richland Springs at 11:00 a.m. about their upcoming work in Asia. Everyone is invited to attend this special presentation and to partake in the delicious pot-luck luncheon that will follow this event.
