Great experience at local business
I just wanted to write in and share a great experience I had at the Mill Street Coffee House in downtown Cleburne.
There was a joining of Texas songwriters and singers who played a true representation of our culture and song. As a Cleburne resident I am proud we have a place in our wonderful town that hosts such an amazing display of local talent.
The style and songs of Texas music is all too often brushed over by Karaoke and cover bands. We don’t really hear it at all in the top 40, and I worry up-and-coming generations will never know that Texas has a sound all its own, developed through the hardworking founders of this great state.
The open mic night offered an opportunity for our heritage to shine.
Layland Museum thanks volunteers
We at Layland Museum express our thanks for all the fine volunteers who work to make the museum a great place in our community. Today, I wish to thank paleontologist Josh Turner for all his swashbuckling costumes and programs for children in the June series “Adventures in Prehistory.” He entered with theme music, gave real information on giant bugs, dinosaurs, mammoths, megatheriums and other prehistoric creatures, and led games to reinforce the knowledge.
It is good to have the passion of a 27 year old who will do whatever it takes to help students learn — and the response was so good that, unfortunately, the museum had to close the classes. We would like other young people to come and teach.
Mrs. Patricia Raley, who instructs Marti students in art, planned and executed the art projects, teaching an art principle each time. A young mother of four, she brought another creative viewpoint and the excitement of loving art to the group. The museum thanks her.
Kindergarten teacher Lisa Waits followed up with an equally good program for preschoolers.
Finally, we appreciate the dedicated parents and the leaders of Scout Pack 1278 for making sure their children are learning in the summer.
We live in a good community; let’s all stick together and take care of each other.
Here’s to many more adventures.
