Bedias Civic Club to host July 4 celebration


Looking forward to Thursday, July 4, the Bedias Civic Club is planning a big Independence Day celebration, including free hotdogs with the trimmings and watermelon until we run out. We will have our fireworks show starting at dark. Please come join us and bring your family & friends.

The Bedias Women’s Club will meet at 2 p.m. tomorrow afternoon at the Bedias Civic Center. Their program will be “Line Dancing.” All Bedias area women are invited and encouraged to attend and participate in all women’s club activities.

Doubling Entendre Art regrets to inform the community that the first Bedias art exhibition, “Wit and Wisdom” closed Saturday. The exhibition will not continue its planned viewing dates through July 8th due to unforeseen circumstances.

Although the show’s run is cut short, we are proud of its brief run and extremely successful opening night. We are most grateful to everyone who came out and supported the local arts and artists. The second annual art exhibition will begin calling for artists in Grimes and surrounding counties beginning next February 2020. Whether your art medium is photography, painting, sculpture or mixed, we look forward to all entries for next year’s show. For information to future participating artists, watch for fliers in February and again there will be no entry fees.

In the meantime, if you wish to discuss or view art or even take art lessons, you can get in touch with Missi Love Fox, Doubling Entendre Art, 19534 Megan St., Bedias, Texas 77831., (936) 661-8783.
