Historian and author Jim Gatewood will present “Bonnie Parker’s Baby Daughter and the Devil’s Back Porch,” which will be followed by lunch.

Table centerpieces of “Super Bowl snack packs” will be available for purchase, as will door prize tickets, so come early to shop. The PPWC uses all proceeds from these sales to benefit local charities and update facilities at the clubhouse.

Another PPWC date to put on the calendar is Jan. 26 when the annual boot-scootin’ fundraiser, titled this year “I Hope You Dance,” comes to town. Reservations for this event are also being taken, and raffle tickets are on sale now.

Pecan Plantation Emergency Medical Service (PPEMS) Chief Sandra Winfield reports that our EMS volunteers responded to 852 calls last year. “We are here for you” is the motto for the 23 EMS personnel members.


Sy Rosenfeld on behalf of Pecan’s Archery/Air Gun Association writes that the group’s range was a busy place in 2012. Sign-ins totaled 1,182 for the year with 254 visitors, not including regularly scheduled meetings or tournaments. Sy says that these numbers are a great increase from 2011.

The area’s 3D range has been expanded with six new 3D targets, and the big game range has been fenced. Improved night lighting and a misting fan for hot summer days have also been installed. The association is considering adding a radio/public address system and is seeking a volunteer to organize tournaments for archers and air gun participants.
