PECAN NUT PLANTING PIECES
Originally from Mississippi and transplanted to Texas for 27 years, Diane Long is a wife, mother, and English teacher who wrote Pecan Plantation Bits for a total of 14 years. She spends her time collecting news from the neighborhood and teaching students how to avoid the passive voice.
In addition to the success of the mixed doubles team in its recent sectional competition, other events at the Pecan tennis courts abound.
A land resurfacing project is now complete, new shade structures are in place and even new benches are ready for use. Junior tennis takes place every Wednesday from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. until December 15 for players aged 6 and over. A day of fall games brought together more than 30 participants for good food and games of tennis. Coach John Ingram oversees lessons, games and events at the tennis center.

One of the greatest amenities at Pecan Plantation is the Emergency Response Groups that keep our community safe every day, and neighborhood residents have another fundraising opportunity to support our volunteer teams.
The Pecan Plantation Volunteer Firefighters / EMS Auxiliary Bake and Bake Sale will take place on Saturday, December 4 starting at 10 a.m. at PAC and will continue until all items are sold.
Additionally, auxiliary volunteers who wish to prepare casseroles or baked goods for sale can pick up aluminum casseroles of various sizes ready to use from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays at the EMS office. In addition, several culinary events where volunteers gather in one place as a group and cook are scheduled, making the gatherings both full of camaraderie and preparation for the sale. Those wishing to participate in this way can contact their phone tree captains.
Patty Eatmon (951-970-5490) and Shirley Jairett (530-401-4936) are the co-chairs of this major 2021 final fundraiser.
Resident and pecan artist Heidi Easley will be back at PAC on Saturday, December 4 from 6 to 8 p.m. for a “sleigh painting party”. The event promises fun, prizes and music as attendees create a wooden sled for the holidays.
Places are limited to 20 and registration is required: 817 573-7952.
The annual Pecan Plantation Woman’s Club Christmas Home Tour takes place on Thursday, December 9, and this hugely popular event includes a full day of holiday merriment.
The Santa Claus workshop and bakery open from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the club house will open the festivities, and the comings and goings of the beautifully decorated houses will last from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Brunch and dinner options can also be purchased with sightseeing packages, and people can choose their preferred option at www.myppwc.com.
The PPWC ladies use the funds generated from this holiday activity to support philanthropic work, club projects and the scholarship fund of their choice.
I hope all Pecan Bits readers had a Happy Thanksgiving filled with family and companionship. The friendliness of the community and the willingness of people to share news and stories with me certainly add to my list of “recognition”.
Our deepest condolences go to the family of Charles Bolton, who passed away on November 15th.
