Coldspring Community Center began the new fiscal year this month. Remember, this Community Center is the one beside the Courthouse and is not owned by the city, but is a non-profit organization with a Board of Directors who oversee the management and maintenance of the place. The previous managers, Darchele and her husband Richard Vucinovich, were recognized for their excellent work in up-dating the center, when they resigned from the position last month. The new manager is Kimberly Randall and the new number for the center is 936-433-6783. There is a web site and an excellent Facebook page for the center. To rent the center for a day costs $150, $90 for a half day with a deposit of $250. It is perfect for small weddings, reunions and groups who need a regular place to hold their meetings.
The Community Center was built in 1955 by groups and individuals who saw the need for such a place for the local residents. It has a new roof, flooring, and many other up dates. Soon it will have new chairs! All of this has been paid for by the fund raising of the managers and board members. It opens onto a butterfly garden courtesy of the Master Gardeners of Coldspring. It is really a gem available for the residents of our area.

Liberty, in Shepherd.The re-sale shop has a great variety of goods, books, kitchen ware and jewelry. The shop closes at 1 PM so don't delay. Call 936-628-3733 for more info.
