Happy 100th Birthday Margurite

21 Apr 2023 3:52 PM | Kelita Alberts (Administrator)

The weather was exciting last night. We had thunder, lightning, wind and rain during the night which was greatly needed. We had been promised all week that we would get the rain, but it held off until after dark. The pets were not huge fans of the thunder. It made for really good sleeping weather at my house. 

We have a celebrity in our midst... this week Rodeo Giddings started on Thursday with slack and will continue tonight and tomorrow at the Lee County Sheriff's Posse Arena. We are so proud of Mark and Rodeo Giddings!

We do want to give a shout out to our very own Margurite Lawrence and wish her a very happy 100th birthday! 

Hello everyone! Just wanted to let you know of a REAL HISTORICAL EVENT, Margurite Lawrence will be celebrating her 100th birthday this Saturday (4/22) at the Venue on Main, Giddings from 2-5. Hope everyone can stop by and meet a real piece of Lee County History.

We are making history every day. We just need to recognize how important it is to document these moments so that we can look back in the future and remember the good times we had.
