An ex-Blanco-ite, Kevin Hall, won 4th place in a massive poker tournament, which gives him bragging rights and many shekels! In the tournament, but not contenders, however, were Bob Daughdril and Cynthia Urban of Blanco.
Sally Wall’s son, Bob, turned 50 and there was a big birthday party with the 50s as the theme, so Sally and Paul went to Fulcher to celebrate with him. Fun was had by all!

Is there any civic organization or club who might want to take over the rainfall amount sign at Real Foods? They have all the materials necessary at the store. People from all over the world have seen this set of signs and want to know why they stopped keeping a record! Lack of manpower is the reason, so maybe it can be taken up as a project or cause! If any of you are interested, let me know!
Don’t forget the Historical Medallion presentation on Saturday, April 12, at the Blanco Cemetery. It will be at 2:00 PM, with reenactors and lots of other interesting historical stuff!
