Makeovers are so much fun. Thanks to Tim Hopper at Mineral Wells Hardware, Uli Ffloweree of Walmart and Michael Franklin, president of our Board of Directors, the Senior Center pool room is sporting a brand new look. Not only did Tim donate paint for the walls, but his staff also did the painting for us. New signs, equipment and pool room décor have created a relaxing atmosphere, and Walmart manager Uli Ffloweree helped complete the project by contributing a flat-screen TV for the wall. Even those of us who don’t play pool are excited about the room’s attractive, updated look.
We tend toward exuberance here at the Senior Center. Every time our staff gets some good news we jump up and down and shout Hurrah! Lately we’ve had several occasions to clap and cheer as sponsor and vendor commitments come in for July’s Taste of Palo Pinto County fundraiser.
We are grateful to Diamond Pharmacy and First Financial Bank, both of which have pledged 5-Star sponsorships for the event. Dr. Saskia Vaughan of Four Seasons Dental will be sponsoring at a 3-Star level. We thank all these early supporters.
Holiday Hills Country Club was first in line as a Taste of Palo Pinto County vendor. We also have a commitment from the Hogg Pit BBQ. In addition to participating as a 2-Star Sponsor, Todd Hamilton will also be vending his “Todd Sauce” salsa. It looks like we’ll have some outstanding food again for this year’s extravaganza.
We really appreciate the businesses and individuals in our community who support our events and help keep us in business. We are already hard at work preparing for this year’s Taste of Palo Pinto County, which is shaping up to be one of our best fundraisers ever.
