PERRIN – The Jack County Retired School Employees Association will be holding a barbecue fundraiser on Oct. 26 at the Jacksboro high school cafeteria from 5-7 p.m. The cost is $8 for adults and children under 12 $5 for the barbecue dinner. They will also have whole briskets for sale for $40 and sliced brisket for $8 per pound. These orders are pre-sell and need to be in by Oct. 22. Call Dale Thomas at 567-3469. Students from Perrin have been honored with scholarships from this association and we in the community should support this effort.

Barbara Willis, of Benton, Ark., the daughter of Owen Brown Jr. and my cousin, came for a brief visit Monday and spent the night before driving onto Colorado. We had a good time talking about old memories, discussing the weather, enjoying eating and naturally when you get to our age, our medical problems. She will be moving to Colorado for a few months until they sell their house in Arkansas and then they are planning to move to Cooksville, Tenn.
