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 July - August 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.
Advertising will continue to cover the cost of running a website. Ads are limited to a business card size ad and will cost $15.00 per issue (two months). For a small additional fee, your ad can be linked to your business website. To view this feature, click on any ad or picture where you see a smiling yellow star. Classified ads are still free.

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
(July - August)
Site Announcement Date: February 9, 2014
Easing into summer is never easy, but it seems even more difficult this year due to not being able to go and do those activities that I would so like to do. Projects are still on hold or moving at an incredibly slow pace. The spring garden is almost gone, and we have certainly enjoyed the fresh potatoes, corn, green beans, lettuce and assorted other edibles. The freezer is well-stocked with veggies for the coming year, including black eyes peas for New Year's Day which at this point seems a long ways off. I wonder what life will be like in December, but for now, the second half of 2020.
I would certainly be failing if I did not mention a few things with regard to the upcoming holiday, July 4th. First, if you have neighbors with large animals, know that they do not react well to loud noises like the pops and bangs of fireworks. The same goes for small animals too, especially some dogs. If you are a new dog owner, this is one night you will want to keep your dog inside if possible. Second, due to the intense winds we have had lately, common sense would dictate to use extreme caution when lighting any kind of fireworks.
The July calendar is still in its infant stage, and while many in-person events continue to be cancelled, there are many activities that are still being held online through Facebook including free concerts by many of the featured musicians on the music page. The best way to keep track of these is to go to the performer's Facebook page and look for "live" events. Poets of course continue to post videos of their poetry on their personal Facebook pages.
“America is a tune. It must be sung together.”
