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 2018
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 (11-16-18)
Site Announcement Date: February 9, 2014
Speaking of Thanksgiving, there are two articles that have seasonal themes. From the Fencepost (Featured Columns) recalls some recent experiences about re-connecting with family, and at the bottom of that same page (Voices From the Past), James Hilton remembers his early childhood Christmas memories.
Also on the Featured Columns page there is a new article by Clinton Anderson about horses that kick in the trailer, and a whole new month of Texas western history dates in Olde West History.
Birthdays and anniversaries are updated along with the monthly calendar, but there is always room for more. There are some new poems for the season and more will be coming along. Music schedules are updated and there is a new article about the Methodist Church's reunion on the Community Page.
It seems that November will be the month for catching up, so do come back. As new items come to me, I will get them posted. In the meantime...enjoy the sunshine and Happy Thanksgiving.
"We know that in September, we will wander through the warm winds of summer's wreckage. We will welcome summer's ghost."
Update 11-06-18: November Calendar - Calendar Page
Birthdays - Celebrations Page
I have no idea where the time has gone or how it got to be the middle of November. Maybe is was the two week vacation in September followed by my wife's business trip, followed by a four day convention in Albuquerque, but somewhere along the way it started to get dark at six o'clock, and that seems to have messed with everything.
Nevertheless, here we are. We have already had a good freeze and some winter rain which makes me all the more grateful for a warm and sunny day.
Next week is Thanksgiving, and family will be coming in. It has been too long, and it will be good to see them all.
