And down the street, Joann and Jack have moved in this past year. What lovely neighbors and friends they have become! We welcome such nice additions to our already nice town! Welcome to everyone!
And some long-time members of our community are making Mineral Wells a better place, a place for hope, change, and help. Tammy Lovell, our Mineral Wells Index “Woman of the Year,” has been instrumental in getting the Center of Life up and running and helping people who are really in need. I had mentioned in a previous column that organization is needed for this sort of thing, and Tammy is doing a masterful job. Also, the thrift store, Noah’s Ark, which Tammy helped organized is been a light of community assistance in our town.
Hopefully soon our Neighborhood Watch programs will be up and running as we all want to look after the health and safety of our town and of each other, and our District Attorney, Mike Burns, is spearheading a program that will open a Child Advocacy Center here in Mineral Wells, and lots and lots of townspeople are on already board. You can help, too!
As we can all see, Mineral Wells is growing, prospering and being a community of proud citizens who want to make friends and lend a hand to each other.
So, I am tipping my hat to all of you out there who are stepping forward to help, encourage, befriend and protect each other! Thanks!
