I have a couple of new photos to post. One is the downtown flowerbed and the other is the "hill" (taken yesterday). Also have a bit of news. The gentleman who is interested in developing the corner (and tearing down our hill) called me. He plans to attend the next CCA meeting and explain his intentions. Should be interesting.
Many of you have heard by now that the Caddo Nursing Home closed its doors. Sad, sad situation. The 30+ residents were transferred to other facilities and the employees have found other jobs, but the closure is a bitter disappointment for the citizens of Caddo. The home was operated by the Bryan County Home Authority. Due to mismanagement or something more serious, the home owes $700,000 to the IRS, USDA, banks, and vendors. There are lots of stories, rumors, and news items about it. I'm sure it will take months of investigation to get to the truth of the problem. In the meantime prayers are needed for everyone involved.
Members of TRAC are driving the streets of Caddo seeking candidates for the next "Yard of the Month". Voting will take place next week. Bill Boydstun constructed an attractive new metal sign and Belinda Davison is busy painting it.
The Caddo Community Association will be hosting its annual Senior Dinner, June 10 at 6pm in the Nazarene Church activity building. The decoration theme for this year will be the “Roaring Twenties”. Residents of Caddo who are eighty years old or over will be treated to an evening of food, fellowship, and fond memories. CCA will be providing brisket, bread, tea, and coffee. Seniors and their families are encouraged to bring side dishes and desserts.
