"His mother [Ita Holloway] was president of the garden club and [Winters] was tax assesor and collector here for over 40 years,” he said. “[Holloway’s father] was in the oil bussiness and they moved here after he retired. Ita lived in Palo Pinto as a kid before she married. John lived in Palo Pinto County nearly all his life.”
Heritage Association Vice President Jim Stephens said he looks forward to Bellamy’s presentation and hopes others will attend.
“We still have a number of people that were alive and actually participated in World War II,” he said. “I think it will be a very interesting and informative talk.”
Join Bellamy and the Mineral Wells Heritage Association at the Little Rock Schoolhouse Thursday at 7 p.m. The schoolhouse, which was the first school in Mineral Wells, is located just north of the old high school on West Hubbard. Parking will be available in the back and the meeting will have refreshments. Admission is free.
