This writer is hearing many compliments on Homecoming 2016! It appears that everyone had a very good time.
****
One homecoming visitor was Peggy Unfried  of Tyler. She is a 1946 graduate of  Groesbeck High School. Peggy states that she has always considered Groesbeck her home.
While in Groesbeck for homecoming donated a beautiful little dress to the Limestone County Historical Museum. The dress was made for her by her aunt, Louisa (Mrs. Vince) Thompson Unfried.  Louisa Unfried served as county auditor of Limestone County for a number of years.
Peggy stated, “Louisa made a lovely little dress for me when I was about two years old. I am now 88. My Mother kept the dress all of those years for me. I now have the dress matted in a nice frame to preserve it and also have a picture of me in the dress.”
The Museum is very proud of this gift invites the public to come by and see it. The Museum is open each Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
On behalf of the Museum, thank you, Peggy, very much!

This week is expected to be somewhat warmer than last week. The forecast calls for the high 80s during the day with night time lows in the 60s. The area has become dry; so, here’s a prediction for rain in the very near future!
