Get ready for some ballgames in Pecan

Spring has sprung in Pecan, and the 2013 co-ed softball league is forming. Practices begin Monday, and the first official game falls on April 2. The six week season will end on May 9, and players are needed to make this venture a success.

Games will be played week on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7, and dues are $10 for a single and $15 per couple to play. Applications are available at the Pecan Activities Center (PAC) and may be completed via telephone: 817-573-7952.

Coaches Rob Faaborg and Tom Woodward welcome players ages 18 and over for a fun, relaxed atmosphere. So for interested Pecaners, it is time to play ball.

In addition, Allen Engerer has spearheaded a men’s senior softball league that plays slow pitch on Monday mornings. It is not too late to join this bunch; contact Allen at 817-219-1949 for more information.


Pecan’s Ladies Golf Association (LGA) has a big day planned for its annual Sadie Hawkins Tournament next Tuesday. A shotgun start will begin play at 9 a.m. Kaye Teater and her committee have been busy organizing the day, the proceeds from which benefit the beautification of Pecan’s golf course.


Wednesday’s Breakfast Club will welcome Kelly Snodgrass and Jennifer Fowler of Fossil Rim to present “Animal Conservation and Endangered Species.” The duo will discuss Fossil Rim’s extremely successful programs to breed and reintroduce endangered species into the wild. Come at 8 a.m. for breakfast and the program.


Toni McClendon leads Pecan’s Grounds Committee whose mission is the “implementation and recommendation of changes for the betterment of Pecan Plantation.”

One project of the committee this spring is to spruce up the playground equipment at all three parks: Sandy Beach, Falls Beach and Plantation Beach. In order to accomplish this goal, folks have been cleaning and sanding already this week, and painting takes place today and tomorrow from 1 to 6 p.m.

Many hands are needed to complete this task, and all volunteers are welcome. Contact Dave Narducci at 682-936-4323 for more information or to sign up.

And to keep the parks in tip-top shape, an adopt-a-park program has begun. Thank you to volunteers Vinnie and Pris Willmeth, Kevin and Karla Willmeth, Steve Hladik, J.C. Wright, Jimmie Dillard and Steve Hohenshelt who have committed themselves to this endeavor.

Easter comes a week from tomorrow, and if you are looking for a place to dine on the holiday, the clubhouse is your answer. Three seatings are scheduled for the day, and a scrumptious buffet is on the menu. Reservations are a must and are going fast. Call today to secure your preferred meal time: 817-573-2641.


If egg hunting is a favorite of your young Pecaners, bring them to the PAC with basket in hand on March 30. The festivities begin at 9 a.m. sharp with egg collecting, a drawing for a goodie-filled Easter basket, and visits with the Easter bunny all on the day’s agenda.


Committee sign-up sheets are at the clubhouse front desk and will remain there through March 31. Folks who would like to serve on a committee may stop by to sign up.


The long anticipated opening of Pooch Plantation comes on April 6. Find all the details here next week.


Our sympathy goes to the family of Fred Long, who passed away on March 11.
