2016 Regional Pecan Show Results

By Neal Alexander

 

The Central Region Pecan Show was held in Kerr County on December 6th, 2016. There were 135 entries, representing 10 Texas counties in the Central, Central West and Southwest districts. Dr. Larry Stein acted as judge. Pecans of outstanding quality were seen in this regional competition, which we believe reflects on the educational efforts of Texas A&M AgriLife extension agents and specialists in Texas to provide resources, expertise and training on pecan production and management.

The top three places in each variety class will be held in frozen storage until the state show to be held at the Texas Pecan Growers Conference in Frisco, July 9-12.

Plaques and ribbons will be mailed to respective county extension offices in a couple of weeks and will be available for pickup.

San Saba "Sew 'n Sews" hold annual Christmas party

The San Saba "Sew 'n Sews" met December 12th at the home of Bill and Jo Anne Hardy for their annual Christmas party. Mrs. Hardy welcomed the guests who enjoyed seeing her festively decorated home.

A special feature was a collection of Christ mas stockings in each room of the house to match the decor. A giant quilted stocking in the entry hall was filled with gifts. Two special quilted stockings given to her many years ago by a dear friend were hung by the fireplace. The quaint bedroom with a four-poster bed belonging to her great-grandparents were covered with two special quilts. One was a gift from Nancy Goss and one was a refurbished quilt given to the Club.

Sharon Hayes, who was unable to come, sent a joyful Christmas poem titled, "The Night before Christmas for Quilters."

Garden Club receives $5,000 grant from Community Foundation

By San Saba Garden Club

 

You may have read the big front-page-above-the-fold-news last week, that the San Saba Garden Club has been blessed with a $20,000 LCRA grant to renovate their clubhouse (the historic Mill House in Mill Pond Park), but that is just a part of the story.

You see, in the preparation for submitting an application to the LCRA for a Community Development Partnership Program grant, LCRA required that the Garden Club provide 20% of the total project budget (or $5,000) in matching funds. That would be pretty intimidating for most, but not for dauntless members like Ann McElroy (who lead the charge), Gail Bruner, Debbie Shahan and Thomas Thompson.

The Garden Club has had some history of working with the Community Foundation. A few years ago, the Foundation had given the club several thousand dollars for repairs and improvements to the historic building. So once again we appealed to the Foundation for help.
