This time next Friday, Friendship Park will be filled with literally thousands of people as we host the Billy Vier Family Festival. This is an entirely free event put on by the Pottsboro Ministerial Alliance to gather our community before school starts their new year. Last year we gave away 270 bags of school supplies and each year the event grows.
First Baptist will be collecting school supplies until Wednesday afternoon at 6:00pm but Sunday morning is a great time to drop them off. Any small amount or as much as you can donate helps. Office Depot had some good sales the other day and many items like spiral notebooks, glue, rules, are very cheap. The required items for Pottsboro Elementary and Middle School are at Walmart as well as other retailers.
