Spring Fling and gunfights fill the streets of Port Neches
Liz Ozment reports outlaws will have an all-day shootout Saturday in Port Neches.
Don’t worry … it’s historic. Port Neches Trade Days will host Spring Fling, featuring Big Thicket Outlaws with staged gunfights. There will be live music, food, a cake walk, pet show and craft booths from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, April 18, along 1300 Port Neches Avenue.
Friends need your books
Kaye Jones is expecting “thousands of books” for the Shower of Savings Book Sale.
Friends of Groves Public Library will sponsor the sale, beginning Wednesday, April 29 for members of the organization only, and continuing through Saturday, May 2. The sale will be held at the library.
Jones said the Friends sponsor two book sales a year, Shower of Savings in April, and Spooktacular in October.
“Proceeds from the sales and related activities have enabled the group to purchase all outdoor decorations in front of the library and all furnishings in the foyer, computers for the Teen section of the library, a scanner and other library equipment, special books, as well as to fund other library projects,” Jones said.
Donations of gently used books are now being accepted.
“As always, the donated books are first considered for inclusion in the library's collection. Especially welcome for the sale are general fiction paperbacks, DVDs, Christian fiction and current hardback fiction,” Jones said. “Popular magazines like Southern Living, Good Housekeeping, etc. are also welcome. Space prevents acceptance of old encyclopedia sets, old news magazines, etc., and the Friends ask that books with mildew be thrown out, since mildew will spread.”
