Bedias Civic Club meets tomorrow


Reflecting on the last couple of weeks anticipating and then enduring hurricane Harvey, we are very proud and appreciative to live in such a caring and loving community. Thank you to those who came from around the corner, from the next town over, and from across the country, you who serve and give so much of yourselves are deeply appreciated and loved. Thank you!

•The Bedias Civic Club meets Thursday for a community potluck and an interesting program. All area residents are encouraged to attend and participate in all civic club activities. Please call Janet Green at (936) 395-1010 for more information on civic club events and activities.

•The scheduled Sept. 11 grand opening of the new Bedias medical clinic has been postponed due to hurricane Harvey disruptions. We are told that home visits may be requested by appointment until the new clinic is finally ready to open its doors.

Services will include acute visits, well child, well adult, women's health, school/sports physicals, vaccines for children, DOT physicals, chronic care management and much more.

Medicare/Medicaid will be accepted, along with all major area insurances. Hospital affiliations are with Baylor, Scott and White, CHI St. Joseph, Memorial Hermann and The Woodlands.

Look for us soon or call for details. We will begin scheduling appointments by phone on Aug. 28; call (936) 241-3431 or go to for information.

We would love to see Bedias area pastors and churches come together to attend a blessing observance on the opening of our new health care clinic. Would you support this effort?
