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 September - Octobert 2019
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.

As always, each edition is a work in progress, so check back every once in a while. New content is on the way.
As the sweltering days of summer give way to somewhat cooler mornings, we are reminded that nothing is permanent and change is always lurking. I for one have noticed that the early morning sun does not reach my back while I am having coffee until almost 8:30, when it used to hit my neck always by 8:00.
September is a grand month because it marks the official end of summer with the Autumnal Equinox on the 23rd. Gardens have mostly given all that they are able, and thoughts wander toward family gatherings and fall festivals. September also brings us a day of remembrance in the form of 9-11.
School of course has already started, and with it the many activities associated with it. Be sure to keep up with all of them by checking the school calendars and the calendar on this website.
