PECAN NUT PLANTING PIECES
Originally from Mississippi and transplanted to Texas for 27 years, Diane Long is a wife, mother, and English teacher who wrote Pecan Plantation Bits for a total of 14 years. She spends her time collecting news from the neighborhood and teaching students how to avoid the passive voice.
The Pecan Plantation Woman’s Club has a busy season on the calendar, starting with its next general meeting on Thursday, November 18. Social time begins at the Pecan clubhouse at 9:30 am, and President Annelle Teal will call the meeting to order at ten.
“Amazing Autumn” will be the theme of the day with a “for the Pecan woman” fashion show on the program.
Additionally, the PPWC has another big date coming up on Saturday, November 20 when its annual Thanksgiving Bake Sale begins at 10 a.m. at PAC.
Homemade casseroles and all kinds of baked goods will be available for purchase. Items will leave quickly, so buyers will want to come early.
Finally, the visit of the ladies’ Christmas houses will take place on Thursday, December 9. This hugely popular event has grown into a one-day gala and three packages are available for purchase. The collection of items for Santa’s workshop and bakery held on the day of the visit has already started, and the ladies can bring items to the meeting on November 18.
The ladies of the PPWC are based on friendship, fellowship, philanthropy and love of the arts and welcome all female Pecan members to the club’s ranks. Funds raised from bake sales and home visit events benefit the recipients chosen by the ladies, both inside and outside the gates of our community.
Today, Saturday, November 13, is election day to fill a position on the Pecan Plantation Volunteer Fire Service / Emergency Medical Service Board of Directors. Ballots must be returned to the Charlie Lee EMS building on Monticello Drive by 10 a.m.
On Tuesday, November 16, the Pecan Plantation Genealogy Club will meet at Granbury Church of Christ at 10 a.m. to discuss the impact of DNA on genealogy work.

The Pecan Plantation Art Guild (PPAG) announces “Art on the Wall” at the clubhouse featuring artist Gloria Lee Hood for the month of November.
Gloria said her creative spirit and ability to ‘think outside the box’, coupled with her passion for pursuing artistic interests, enabled her to produce art and create an avenue of art for her fellow painters. . Gloria believes in art marketing, which produces art awareness, and is the founder and editor of The Eyes of Texas Fine Art Gallery LLC online publication and virtual gallery. His art has been accepted and awarded in juryed art exhibitions and is now collected internationally.
Gloria loves texture, adding glass and mirrors in most of her designs for an “extra bling”. His inspiration for his commissioned art is to create a personal conversation piece, bringing warmth and smiles to others.
Our deepest condolences go to the family of Allen Engerer, who passed away on October 28, as well as to the family of Freddy Shipley, who died on October 29.
