I don’t much like meetings. I know that isn’t grammatically correct and I don’t much care. That’s what my grandmother would say and it’s good enough for me. However, last night I went to a meeting of the Town Restoration Association of Caddo and it was a great one. First of all, it was a dinner meeting and I just don’t think you can have a bad meeting if there is good food! lol And it was at the home of a great hostess with a wonderful view, so that added to the enjoyment. And last, but not least, we are finishing up some projects that have been in the works for quite some time, so we are coming to the end of the year with some successes on our agenda.
The only sad thing about TRAC is that our membership has dwindled so much since the group began in 2005. I know that is partially due to the fact that there have been “different views” that have had nothing to do with the landscape. And some of the membership changes have been due to personal changes in health and finances and other circumstances. But there hasn’t been an influx of new people with new ideas and that worries me. There is still much to be done to improve Caddo and very few people seemed interested in working to do so. I hope that next year we will see an increase in membership.
The view last night was also a reminder of the continued impact of the drought. You can’t get more than two people together these days without the conversation drifting to the weather. It affects us all. Please continue to pray for some relief.
Today is our grandson’s birthday! Happy Birthday Austin!
