 Greetings once again from the Great State of Texas . Now since fall has come and winter is close behind , activities have

 began to take place in the much cooler weather. Everyone knows fairly well what Texas is like in the summer.


News on the Confederate Monument Of The Wind in Orange ,Texas. The Memorial added six flags back in the

early part of November. It has since been updated to a total of 12 Flags flying. I must say , man it is beautiful.

Plans are projected for the Memorial to have 32 total flags flying when completed.

The Confederate Memorial Of The Wind is located at 1-10 West and intersection of

Martin Luther King Jr.Drive. Only a few short miles west of Orange, Texas.


A good amount of work to be done yet. All work is on a volunteered basics. Future works days will be set up monthly .

Still more side walks and flag pole bases along with Memorial bricks to be laid .

General finishing on the sidewalk needs to be done in places as well as low spots need filling with dirt to level out.

 Of course after concert pours and it sets, the forms need to be taken down.

But the work is moving along .
