Raise the roof

Meridian VFD launches fundraiser campaign to expand fire station

By Simone Wichers-Voss

Meridian’s Fire hall was built in 1952. Back then, fire trucks were smaller, a lot smaller. With their growing inventory – more and bigger trucks – the Meridian Volunteer Fire Department wants to extend the present fire hall’s walls and raise the roof.

The 24 volunteer firefighters have recently launched a fundraising campaign with the slogan neighbors helping neighbors, because everybody in the community benefits from improvements made to the MVFD. They hope to raise $120,000 for the project. They hope to come close to their goal by Feb. 13, when they have their annual fundraising chili supper at the Meridian Civic Center from 4:30-6:30 p.m.

The two-day workshop hosted by the Bosque Arts Center Pottery Guild was ten years in the making and was filled within a few weeks. Initiator Kay Lane met Irvin ten years ago in Gruene at a workshop, but at that time he was still teaching.

Driving The Trail

Historic cattle drive to stop at Bosque Bottoms

By Simone Wichers-Voss

The sound of hooves, the sight of cowboys on horses pushing a herd of Texas Longhorn cattle down the road, and the squeak of the wagon wheels - all bring thoughts of a time in history when cowboys were created and Western Heritage was in the making.

To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Chisholm Trail, the Western Heritage Cattle Drive is organizing an actual cattle drive from Texas to Dodge City, Kansas. Beginning in Salado 100 head of Texas Longhorn cattle, horses, wagons, and all the crew, will gather before their journey covering hundreds of miles for an estimated two and a half months.
