Corsicana — May 6

The Oak Valley Crime Watch will next be held Tuesday, May 6th at 6:30 p.m. at our Oak Valley Community Center. Each month we ask you bring your favorite dish and a friend/neighbor. As usual our Sheriff's Deputy will give our monthly crime report. Please come with an open heart and empty stomach. I hope to see you all there, everyone is always welcome.

The Southern Pacific Sunbeam Club will meet at 11:30 a.m. At the Ennis IHOP for all retired or active railroaders, their family members and friends. Make your plans not to be there to share the memories of railroading and especially the 2014 reunion.

The Blooming Grove Historical Society will meet at 7 p.m. in the museum at 201 S. Fordyce St in Blooming Grove.  All interested people are invited to attend.  For more information call 903-673-2635 or 903-695-2633.

May 7

Kinsloe House will hold its 76th Anniversary luncheon at noon. Kinsloe House will again step back in time to “Pieces of the Past.” Longtime Kinsloe member, Patty Harris George, wrote a book, and included in the book is a play “Clues to Kinsloe Conduct” or “Who put the Peppersauce in Mrs. Kinsloe’s Parlor?”  The play is going to be reenacted at this birthday luncheon, with current members of Kinsloe House performing the parts. This play was a success in 1961 and should be even funnier in 2014. Come join us for a wonderful luncheon and hilarious play and see some of the members dressed in 1960’s attire. Members, please make your reservations or cancellations by Monday noon, May 5th by calling the Kinsloe House at 903-874-5791 or emailing thekinsloehouse@gmail.com.

Eureka Crime Watch will meet at 1:30 p.m. at the Eureka United Methodist Church. Special guest is Sue Tyner from the Navarro County Food Pantry. Final plans will be made for our annual picnic. Join your friends and neighbors for this informative meeting and refreshments will be served.
