In a quick visit to Rockport-Fulton this week, I noticed a new construction project. Among the recovery efforts from Hurricane Harvey over the last two years, I imagine the folks living here have seen some things rebuilt and others not. For this pastor who went to high school here and then moved away, this construction project has special meaning.
The old Paws and Taws community building was used for meetings, Gatherings, dances, prom nights, and so much more. Our graduating class of 1978 had danced here. Laura and I went to prom here. I think I wore a lime green leisure suit. Lots of memories!
To see something new being constructed in the same location - well, it’s just very good to see! Congratulations to this community for the progress made in two years. And to all who have lived daily in the storm’s aftermath, your perseverance is showing!
