The big news in Texas for the past several days has been Hurricane Harvey and its path of destruction.

Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas coast near Rockport late Friday night and has brought much devastation up and down the Texas coast as well numerous inland areas.  Rain from Harvey is expected to continue for much of the rest of this week.

Groesbeck and the Central Texas area has received a good deal of rain. However, there appears to be no flooding danger in the Groesbeck area. The very heavy rains has caused flooding in the Houston area as well as other areas on the coast as well as some inland areas.

Our prayers and thoughts are with those across the Texas coast as they seek to recover from the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey.


For the second straight year five Groesbeck High School classes will have a combined class reunion. Homecoming 2017 is Friday and Saturday, October 13-14.

The five classes are the Groesbeck High School Classes of 1954, 1955, 1956, 1957, and 1958. The Class of 1957 is celebrating its 60th anniversary of its high school graduation.

The five class reunion will be held in the Club Room of the Groesbeck Convention Center.

The members of these five classes will soon be receiving written notification of this reunion.


The Groesbeck Ex-Students Association has received ex-students dues and memorial contributions during the past week.
