Welcome to The Poolville Post - Online
The Poolville Post has been located in Poolville since July, 2012, and from the very beginning, the goal has been to provide "Positive news for and about the people who are Poolville, Texas."
Online Edition November - December 2020
The print version of the Poolville Post has been retired. It was owned, operated and published under the direction of Tacy Ellis. The online edition of the Poolville Post is its own entity, published by Greg Bade. Its primary purpose is to continue the "sense of community" that was developed during the printed version and keep it alive and healthy. It is the sincere hope of the online version that community members will continue to submit their stories, activities and significant happenings, so we can continue to keep you informed and perhaps even entertained. I will be looking for school news, church news, community news and VFD news to include in the online edition. As needs and wants grow and change, new pages or features can and will be added. It is my intention to publish the online version every two months at the beginning of January, March, May, July, September, and November.

Why should you read the online edition? While the print version of any paper is inherently more exciting and even perhaps more personal (it arrives in your mailbox after all) than an online version, it is seldom read cover to cover at one sitting, and after a few days it may be used to mop up spilled tea, start a fire or line the bird cage. The online version will never suffer those calamities. It will be here until the next issue comes out, so you can return again and again. You can also send the link to friends around the country and around the world, and they can see what is happening in Poolville. With an online version, photographs can be published in color, and interviews can be recorded live, so you can actually hear the person speak. The possibilities are staggering.

A Word or Two From the Publisher - Greg Bade
(November - December)
Site Announcement Date: February 9, 2014
Food is better in November than any other time of the year.
It is difficult for me to believe that it is November, but calendar events and the weather have convinced me although I am still having a little trouble getting ready to feed critters at 5:30 PM when I am used to doing it at 6:45 PM. Be that as it may, here we are, and there is nothing that can be done about it except persevere.
There is much to see in this issue including some new poems, November music schedules, a new calendar and a few updated Featured Columns. Events on the Community Page will be changing soon, so if you missed them, there is still time. The School pages have been updated with some team photos, and I am promised that there are more to come.
Of special note - the Veteran's day program at the elementary school has been canceled this year, as has the parade and the Veteran's Day lunch at the Methodist church. In an attempt to honor our area veterans, there is a special page titled "Veterans" where they can be recognized. Send me information and a photo and I will get it posted. There are a few there already, but I know there are more. The elementary school still has plans for its students to place flags at the Poolville Cemetery, and there will be photos.
Texas State Parks have waived entrance fees on November 8th for everyone in honor of Veteran's Day, and National Parks have waived entrance fees for veterans and gold star families beginning November 11th onward.
As we make our way through the election, Thanksgiving and the upcoming December holidays, whatever your political affiliation and religious conviction you hold, whatever your beliefs regarding our current state of affairs, what is happening affects all of us: Be gracious, be kind, be forgiving, be safe, be prayerful, be humble and be safe.
