Brownwood Aug 13, 2019 by Doris Dickerson- The Pecan Valley Genealogy Group met at 6:30 pm in the Genealogy Library 213 South Broadway on a very hot Aug 12 evening. We had four visitors - plus 19 registered members. Greetings to visitors and reports on those with health problems. Praying for quick recovery for Nancy Jones with her health issue, and glad to see Fred Allen back after being out for some time. Elaine Coleman opened the meeting with Prayer and Pledge to the US & Texas flags. Previous minutes of meetings were read and confirmed, plus present records given. Clay Riley showed change in wording of Section V, Article 5 of the by laws to better fit the needs of our Office. They were approved. Mr. Frank Hilton presented a very interesting and informative program on available information that could be found in our Office and where it could be found quickly. It had been put together by he and Karen Fair with amusing cartoons - separating pictures of the different areas of the Office - and telling all that can be found in each area. All enjoyed the Presentation. Edwin & Irene Glaspie were missed as gone on a well deserved vacation.
Brownwood Jul 9, 2019 by Danny Jones- The Pecan Valley Genealogical Society summer picnic for 2019 was held last night, but not at the planned location. Due to a snafu the reservation at the Adams Street Community Center was recorded for June 8 instead of July 8 and so a quick adjustment had to be made to keep from cancelling it entirely. The meeting room of the main library was available and acquired for the picnic and saved the get-together. Lots of other adjustments had to be made due to the small size of the meeting room for the 19 attendees. The picnic proceeded and everyone had a good time in spite of the delays. Frank Hilton called the firecracker bingo game and it was a hoot.
