Child Welfare Board sponsors Angels Unaware program

This is your call to help make Christmas a little better for some children in need by supporting the 2017 Angels Unaware program sponsored by the San Saba County Child Welfare Board (CWB). Shortly after Thanksgiving, members place the Elsie Millican Memorial Christmas tree in the atrium of the Arrowhead Bank building in San Saba decorated with little paper angel Christmas ornaments. Each ornament is numbered and has the age (up to sixth grade), gender, and sometimes the request or need of an anonymous child. A gift price limit of $35 was set to make this giving equitable and affordable. The children who receive these gifts are not in CPS custody; but they are in homes where the caregiver seriously needs a helping hand. These donations are NOT made just to provide “one more present” for local kids. Not every household qualifies; there must be a true need. Grandparents should not apply for gifts, unless they are the direct caregiver or are acting on behalf of the caregiver.

Dedication of the new Wayne Gossett Library

By Patsy Hall

On October 30, 2017, friends, family, students, and faculty gathered in the new Richland Springs ISD library for a special dedication ceremony. The beautiful new library was formally named the "Wayne Gossett Library" in memory of Wayne Gossett.

The ceremony opened with Superintendent Don Fowler welcoming guests and telling a story about Mr. Gossett. Mr. Fowler knew from that experience that Mr. Wayne Gossett was committed to the small school at Richland Springs, as well as the community. Mr. Gossett ("Wayne," as all of Richland Springs and Elm Grove knew him) was instrumental in the refurbishing of the former library many years ago.
