By Linda Whalon

If the attendance for our August meeting is any indication of how the rest of 2018 is to proceed, we should be in for quite a successful few months! Our facility was bursting at the seams with members. Members were filled with enthusiasm and energy for the upcoming events.

We were introduced to our new oil painting instructor, Nancy Griffith, who made a presentation about her class curriculum, class schedule, class goals, and her unique approach to teaching art.

Buncombe: ‘Bash for Cash’ Fundraiser Starts Aug. 2

By Karen Wootton

The weather reporters say there is a cool front moving in, but high 90s just isn’t very cool to me. We need to do a rain dance or something!

The fuel dock at the Buncombe Creek Marina should be back open this week.

We are sorry for the inconvenience, but major repairs had to be done.

Congratulations to Ed Kent on his most recent retirement from the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department.

He is an awesome guy, and I’m sure he will be missed at the sheriff’s office.

Texoma Fire District: Texoma Fire Board Meeting Aug. 2, T-shirts Still for Sale

By Paula Zimmerman

Wow, this has been a very busy few days for the fire department.

One fire was caused by a tractor backing up to bale hay and hitting a rock.

We were there for over five hours. The next day we had to go back because it had started to rekindle.

Then a car wreck, a field fire, and a structure fire.

As you know, with the weather like it is, this puts our firefighters in a very unhealthy situation.

Librarily Speaking: Thank You to All of our Sponsers

By Shirley Harkins
Madill City-County Librarian

Anchored safely in port with flags billowing in the breeze, you can almost smell the salty air of the ocean. This oil painting is titled, “Boats,” by the Madill Art Club’s “Artist of the Month,” Roberta Burke.

Two sea-worthy vessels float beside a boathouse on a multi-colored ocean of blue with a distant mountain and clouds in the background. Thank you Roberta, for bringing the ocean to our library this month.

The July display is by the Madill Rose Garden Club Member, Susan Patton. Standing at attention on a bed of star-spangled blue, are two adorable gnomes and birds saluting the U.S.A. for Independence Day.
