Independence Day Celebration

Country Place, with its estate-sized lots, allows for lots of privacy. But several times a year, thanks to a long tradition and Valencia Ray, we get together. On July 3rd, we celebrated Independence Day with the pledge of allegiance, the national anthem, and brunch. The kids searched for red, white and blue beads on the lawn, and we spent a couple of hours catching up with neighbors and meeting new ones. 


Easter Egg Hunt and Spring Picnic

A rainstorm came through at 5:00 am on April 3rd, but that wasn’t enough to cancel the Country Place Easter Egg Hunt and Spring Picnic! A troup of candy-hungry kids was ready to roll at 10:30 and once they had their baskets full the adults lined up for fried chicken, roast beef, and all the sides that members brought, including Jerry Jones’ incredible peanut brittle. Valencia Ray and her back of helpers once again outdid themselves and we enjoyed food and fellowship, as we said farewell to departing board members Valencia, Elsie Jacks, Dennis Strong and Ben Scott, and welcomed new board members Matthew Abernathy, Jim Hamilton, Mark Woodruff and Nathan Mimms. Russell Jacks and James Lindsey Bates (James) will continue to serve. This has been an excellent board and we’d like to thank them for all their attention to the lakes, the piers, and maintaining Lakeshore. These get-togethers serve as a reminder that, although our homes are located on larger-than-average lots, we can maintain a close-knit neighborhood with the help of social media and events.

New Faces

I’ve been seeing a lot of new faces walking in the neighborhood recently, and it occurs to me that those of you who moved here in the past few months have really missed out on the social life of Country Place due to the pandemic. We haven’t been able to hold our Spring Picnic and Easter Egg Hunt, our July 4th get-together, and movies in the park. I’m hoping that we’ll get back to some degree of normalcy in the next few months, but in the meantime I enjoy seeing our neighbors enjoying walks (and jogs) through one of the most beautiful areas in Texas.
