One Of The Largest Book Sales In West Texas Opens This Week

Life is starting to feel more normal in the Big Country as the usual schedule of events gets going for the summer season. The Friends of the Abilene Public Library will host its annual book sale this coming weekend. Like most other annual events organizers had to cancel last year’s book sale. It’s the largest fundraising event the group hosts each year, and 2020 would have marked the 30th sale. “It really hurt us,” said Kathy Curtis, a volunteer board member with the Friends of the Abilene Public Library. “We’ve taken off this year running," Curtis says they also raised more than $7,000 during Abilene Gives. " I was very proud of our community and how generous they were to the library because we weren’t able to hold the book sale. We tripled our donations from the previous year.”

Thoroughbred Makeover Diary: Turning Heads at the Reining Show

Those three little words: “She’s a Thoroughbred.”. I know to everyone in this community, those three words bring a huge sense of pride and honor. That is exactly how I felt sharing them at the reining show we took Pied N True to in Waco, Texas, full of the flashiest and most talented Quarter Horses and Paints I’ve seen. Pied was a show-stopper, and many reining professionals approached me asking about her. When I told them she was an off-track Thoroughbred just getting started in her new career, these trainers were blown away. “A Thoroughbred reiner!?” someone remarked. I don’t think I’ve been so proud as to answer, “That’s right!”
