  • The stars of the show are here and are being hung. So, visit the ten different locations and check out the wonderful designs from long ago and those that have just finished being made. It is an event for young and old, men and women. This year we will have some quilt tops that have been purchased and hand-quilted by our own Senior Nutrition Center, which makes those tops into a thing of beauty. Please remember the Senior Center will not open until 1:00 p.m. on Friday, but will be open at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday.
  • Don't miss this one! On Friday evening, August 23, 2019, 7:30-9:30 p.m., Harmony House Concerts will host Ellis Paul in concert in our intimate vintage home setting. Speaking personally, the hosts are proud to bring Ellis Paul back for guests to enjoy. "He writes incredible songs and has an incredible voice."
  • Sipping wine on a summer evening under a shade tree enjoying some great live music and a light breeze.....sounds great, doesn't it? Especially when you don't have to drive somewhere else! Wine Down on Willow is a trendy, local event at the Creative Arts Center in Bonham that got started two years ago. Local wineries participate and sell wine and food is available for purchase as well. The arts center brings in a local musician or two among the many talented players in our area. Dinner and a show - who could resist?
  • On the street near me is a small park recently built by the City of Sherman. Almost every time I drive by, I see kids on the swings. I was a big time swinger when I was a kid, so a few years ago, when I read about the European Union deciding to limit the height of swings, I was shocked and appalled. (OK, I wasn't really shocked and appalled, but that seems to be the in phrase for constantly offended crowd.)
  • The 10th Annual Quilt Hop in Bonham is set for Friday, July 26 and Saturday, July 27, but quilt lovers who can't wait that long to get an early glimpse of some of this year's quilts on display can drop by Sam Rayburn Library or Creative Arts Center this coming week.
  • 1990 – Greg LeMond, an American road racing cyclist, wins his third Tour de France after leading the majority of the race. It was LeMond's second consecutive Tour de France victory. Gregory James "Greg" LeMond (born June 26, 1961) is an American former professional road racing cyclist who won the Road Race World Championship twice (1983 and 1989), the Tour de France three times (1986, 1989, and 1990), and is considered by many to be the greatest American cyclist of all time. He is also an entrepreneur and anti-doping advocate. LeMond was born in Lakewood, California, and raised in ranch country on the eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, near Reno. He is married and has three children with his wife Kathy, with whom he supports a variety of charitable causes and organizations.
