Hurst Senior Pipeline Tidings

By: Maurine LeCocq, HSAC Journalist

Autumn has arrived! What memories does the word autumn evoke for you. Cooler weather, football games, the beautiful colors of the leaves as the temperatures eventually drop toward winter when they finally fall. When we were teenagers in Detroit we would gather the leaves from our yard at the curb on the street, wrap potatoes in aluminum foil, and put them in the pile of leaves, then toss a lit match on the pile. We’d sit around our fire, talk, sing camp songs, plan Halloween Pranks to be played on the neighbors, discuss our chances of winning the coming football game, and enjoy our smoked potato before going home. Can’t do that here! Burn Ban!!! We Senior Teenagers have our own fun things to do during Autumn and some are not that different than they were 60-70-or 80 years ago. Football is huge in the H.E.B. area. We Senior Teenagers in the HEB School District can be up in those bleachers yelling our lungs out, cheering our favorite team free of charge if we are 65 or older. All you have to do is go to the District’s Main Office on Central (In front of Pennington Field’s parking lot), show them your ID, sign a simple form, and they will give you an Encore Pass which you can use forever. Autumn at HSAC is filled with excitement as we anticipate the Annual Craft and Holiday Market. Back in August Michelle told me that over 90 vendor spaces had already been taken and they had begun a wait list. This brings to mind the fun of wandering around and looking at all the wares the talented crafters have brought, and finding the perfect gifts for family and friends. There are so many wonderful options: jewelry, clothing, Halloween and Christmas decorations, paintings, quilted items, teas, spices, and more. Yummy snacks made by some of the staff and brought in by vendors are available. Best of all is the opportunity to see everybody in the same place, and share our enthusiasm over our purchases with our friends. This event is something we all look forward to, and enjoy. Get out your calendars and mark the date: Friday, October 18, 2019 from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. The Annual Craft and Holiday Market is our biggest money maker of the year. We benefit from the end result, so make it a point to tell all of your friends about the wonderful holiday shopping opportunity they will be missing if they don’t attend on Friday, October 18, 2019
