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 March - April 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.

INFORMATION! ADS! CONTACT INFORMATION ! DEADLINES!
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
(March - April)
Site Announcement Date: February 9, 2014
March is the month of wind and taxes.
So much has changed in the last thirty days that it is almost unbelievable, and yet here we are. Schools have been closed, and it is likely that graduations will be cancelled or at minimum postponed, restaurants have been closed to in-house dining, and grocery shopping has changed, at least for some of us.
The activities that we used to attend have likely been suspended at least through the end of April, and that includes festivals, movies, NASCAR racing, and even church services. Life as we have know it has changed, and no one is immune to the changes. It is likely that things will never be quite the same as they were just thirty days ago.
And yet through it all, life goes on. Musicians are giving virtual concerts, museums are giving virtual tours, schools are conducting at least part of their curriculum online, meals are being distributed by the schools, students are being schooled at home, and parents are having to take a more active roll in their child's education. Neighbors are helping neighbors, and communication between friends is on the rise. I am seeing acts of charity in these difficult times that I had seldom seen when times were better. I am seeing selfless decisions being made to cancel events, not necessarily for the benefit of those who might attend, but rather for those who might come in contact with those attendees in the days to come.
So while the number of events to be covered may have been reduced for a time, there are still positive activities to report, and to that end a new page has been created - It is called School Updates. Did you know that every evening at 8:30 you can have a bedtime story read to you by the Elementary School Principal? Just follow the FB link at poolvillepost online or poolville elementary.
Other positive activities are being reported on the Community Page, so please take a look there too, and do send in anything else positive that you happen to come across.
Many thanks, and be safe and stay healthy.
