Bring chairs for Cowboy Concert


The Pecan Plantation Volunteer Fire Department and Emergency Medical Service Auxiliary has a big event planned for tonight beginning at 6 p.m. at the Pecan Activities Center (PAC).

“Cowboy Concert Under the Stars” featuring the group Sons of the Prairie Wind will treat concert goers, who should bring lawn chairs for an evening of music and cowboy tales of the Old West. Admission is free, but donations are appreciated.

Concessions of hotdogs, chips, cookies, popcorn, and drinks will be available, and a silent auction will be held inside the PAC, so bring along a wallet.

The Auxiliary cookbook, “Five Alarm Favorites,” will be available for purchase. All proceeds from the event will benefit our emergency service groups.


“The La Tee Esta” hits the golf course for lady golfers on Tuesday with a 9 a.m. shotgun start. Registration and pictures run from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. Play continues Wednesday and Thursday mornings.


Wednesday morning’s Breakfast Club goers will hear from Hood County Senior Center Executive Director Mindy Hodges and Meals on Wheels Coordinator Jada Green about how these two groups serve senior members of our community. Come at 8 a.m. for breakfast and the program.


Brothers of the Cross (BOTC), a local Christian, interdenominational fellowship of men who meet on the last Thursday of every month at the home of Pecaner Mel Robinson, announces a special concert at its September meeting on Thursday evening.

“Paul’s Journey” will headline this family night event, which begins at 6:30 p.m. at 8224 Ravenswood Road. The event is free, but a love offering for the singers will be collected. Seating is limited, so bring lawn chairs. Parking is plentiful for folks arriving via car or golf cart.

Lead singer of the group is Dodd Meadows of Tolar; other members include Joe Kitson, Stan Watson, and Rod Treme.

The Pecan Plantation Art Guild’s (PPAG) Gallery Night 2 comes Friday evening from 5 to 9 p.m. when five gorgeous homes will become art galleries for the night where attendees may meet the artists in person and enjoy their work.

The inaugural gallery last year, which was described as “trick or treat for adults,” was such a hit that the PPAG has made it an annual event.

Admission is free, raffle tickets will be for sale, and hors d’oeuvres are on the menu, as well as fabulous door prizes for folks attending all five galleries. Opportunities abound to purchase original art and deal directly with the artist.

A highlight of the evening will be observing Doug Prine paint, and an original piece of his work will be a raffle ticket item.

Galleries for the night include: Bales Gallery (which will feature Doug Prine) at 9029 Bellechase; Croft Gallery (7518 Ravenswood); Hough Gallery (7404 Fox Run Court); Sutton Gallery (8926 Brierfield); White Gallery (9300 Bellechase). Folks may begin touring at any one of the galleries, where catalogs and maps will be available.

Previews for the pieces featured on Gallery Night may be seen by visiting
