Brashear News 09/16/14 By Debby Young

I know it is a little early, but does anyone know of houses that could benefit from a new coat of paint? The SSWC will be asking for houses to paint very soon. Look around your neighborhood in Brashear and let me know. I do not mind contacting that person asking if they would like to have their house painted.

Elton Stewart took me up on my offer for a visit this morning. He stopped by and wanted to tell me that the Stewart Family is having a Family Reunion this Saturday at the Family Life Building in Brashear. He said his oldest cousin, who is 97 is supposed to attend. This cousin was a sister of Earline who used to call me with remembrances of Brashear long ago. Sounds like the Stewarts will be having a great time. They are expecting 40 to 50 people.

One day this week, Bobby McDonald, posted on Facebook a picture of an early map of Hopkins County. There were some little towns I had never heard of mentioned. While Elton was visiting, Tom and I asked him about some of those around Brashear. He mentioned Moonie Hump, Overland, Plunkett, and Paint Rock. These names are towns that maybe part of our heritage. Can anyone out there remember others or tell me something about these small towns?

I had a gentleman mention to me at church on Sunday about having several National Geographic Magazines and Texas Parks and Wildlife to share. Is anyone out there interested? Please get in touch with me so I can get you in touch with this man. Thanks. Teachers this might be something you can use in your classroom.

Divorce Care is in full swing. We met for the first time on Sunday and had a great session. Remember the sessions are independent of each other. This week’s session is on, Road to Healing/Finding Help. We would love to have you join us if you feel this could help you get through the pain of divorce or separation. We meet on Sunday afternoons at 4:00 pm at the Administration Building of the First United Methodist Church in Sulphur Springs. Come see what it is all about. It is free and I promise we don’t bite.

We have noticed that several new books have been placed in the Brashear Free Library. Thanks for your donations and thank you for reading. I saw a sign that says “reading keeps your brain sharp”. I need all I can get to keep my old brain sharp.

I am enjoying the cooler temperatures in the morning. Hope they continue. Ready for fall. In closing, remember to call me at 903.612.8806; email me at [email protected]; or stop by CR 1119 for a visit. Elton came early and caught me making a Coconut Cream Pie. Wish he had stayed long enough to taste it. It is very tasty. Take care and be careful out there.
