Pinnacle Women open annual sale
Monitor Staff Reports
GUN BARREL CITY–Organizers hope that a change of venue will draw in folks looking for a bargain on previously owned one-of-a-kind items.
The Pinnacle Women’s Club is holding its 12th annual resale market this Thursday and Friday at what has been The Barrel and Gators at 623 Gun Barrel Lane/State Highway 198 S.
“It’s a bigger place – 10,000 square feet of air-conditioned space,” club president Collen Hinckley said.
“When the doors open (7 a.m.), it will look like a department store, with everything ordered into sections from lawn and garden, to decor and children’s wear,” Hinckley added.
The idea of having such a sale sprung from the ladies’ desire to fund their scholarship program.
Today, the club awards continuing scholarships, that are renewed each year until graduation, to deserving individuals.
The resale has grown from its first year when it brought in about $2,000.
What isn’t sold by 4 p.m. Friday will be donated to the Family Peace Project in Athens, a program to aid abused women and children, Hinckley reported.
Then, the club will begin planning and collecting all over again for next year’s sale.
“About 150 families participate with us through monetary donations and household goods,” Hinckley added.
The Pinnacle Women’s Club also supports many community organizations with monetary donations throughout the year, including the East Texas Crisis Center, CASA and both local libraries, in addition to its scholarship program.
The big resale

WHAT: 10,000 square feet of previously-owned goods at bargain prices. All organized department store style.

WHEN: Starts at 7 a.m. Thursday and Friday, Oct. 8-9. Closes at 6 p.m. Thursday and 4 p.m. Friday.

WHERE:
623 Gun Barrel Lane/SH 198, where Gaters and The Barrel used to be.

WHY:
Raising funds for scholarships and to support worthy endeavors, such as the local libraries.

By Barbara Gartman
Monitor Staff Writer
TOOL–A 50-year anniversary is always something special, but some are rarer than others.
Tool city councilman Nathan Reeder recently received a letter congratulating him for being among “the distinguished Texas CPAs who have maintained their licenses for 50 years.”
The honor comes from the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy.

Tool City Councilman Nathan Reeder is being honored for by the Texas State Board of Accountancy for maintaining his license for 50 years.

“I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. I have met a lot of interesting people, and I have clients all over the our country, and from New Zealand, to Malta, Sweden and Denmark.
The time period reaches well beyond when many have packed up their credentials and retired.
Reeder is semi-retired, still servicing friends and loyal clients.
Enclosed with the letter was a certificate of achievement, commemorating the milestone.
In addition a special invitation was included, inviting Reeder to the swearing-in ceremony for new CPAs set for Nov. 14, in Austin.
Reeder will be seated with other 50-year honorees on the stage during the ceremony.
Special seating will be arranged for his family and guests that attend with him.
He said his wife will be taking his picture during the ceremony.

The Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake
The domino effect is a chain reaction that occurs when a small change causes a similar change nearby, which then will cause another similar change, and so on. My name is Domino, and I got my name not only because I’m black and white like a domino tile, but also because my outgoing, cheerful personality causes my doggie roommates to smile. This also causes our human friends to smile, which even causes the kitties in the cat room to smile.
I am an 8-month-old male Pointer/Terrier mix. I love children, other dogs, and even get along great with kitties. I’ve had all my shots and am ready to be adopted. If you’d like to experience the domino effect, I am sure to put a forever smile on your face when you take me to my forever home.
I currently live with a foster family, so if you would like to meet me, call my friends at the Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake at (903) 432-3422 to make an appointment. You can also email them at dogshsccl@yahoo.com.
