Pecan Plantation couple celebrates 67 years together


Congratulations to Ruby and Ed Brown who marked 67 years of marriage on June 30. The Browns enjoyed an anniversary dinner out with friends Carol and Jimmy Womack.

The Browns were married in the Little Brown Church in the Valley in North Hollywood, Calif., and lived several other places in California, as well as Seattle, Wash., before retiring and coming to Pecan 20 years ago. Both played golf in years past and enjoy bridge now.

Best wishes to Ruby and Ed for many more years together.


Pecan’s archery/air gun range was a busy place Saturday when a one-day kids’ camp found the facility filled to capacity with children and their families. Archery Association Chair Sy Rosenfeld says the day was warm, but the spray cooling fan was at work for everyone’s comfort.

Each participant received individual coaching by archery instructors, and all 32 campers shot at the target balloons. Sy said no one kept score, but the field showed many successful hits by the little ones.

The next archery/air gun event on the calendar comes July 13 from 10 a.m. to noon. It is a free competition open to participants ages 7 to 12 years old. Daisy Red Ryder BB guns and Daisy Buck BB guns will be supplied for the shooters, and the winners will take home BB guns of their own.

Hot dogs and punch will be served by Pecan’s Sports and Recreation Committee.

Space is limited, and signing up at the PAC is necessary: 817-573-7952.
