Jacinto City, TX. – Monday, March 29, 2021 will go down in history as one of the most important days in the City’s history. In 1944, its first school — a tiny wooden building originally named the Industrial Elementary School — which contained one office, a small kitchen, cafeteria, and several classrooms with 200 students, now has been transformed to the latest state-of-the-art school. In 1947, the city of Jacinto City was incorporated and the name of the school was changed to Jacinto City Elementary.

Two years after the May, 29, 2019 ground-breaking ceremony, the new two-story, $26+ million school, home of the Tigers (mascot), has the most latest technological advances available. It will accommodate grades Pre-K through 5th grade.

NS Rotary holds “No-Fish” Fish Fry Benefit on May 15

The North Shore Rotary Club is planning their 46th Annual Rotary Fundraising Event, a Fish Fry without the fish this year, due to the Pandemic. Instead of the Rotary Pavilion on Wallisville, it will be held on May 15, 2021 at Turner Chevrolet.

During the past 46 years, the North Shore Rotary has raised millions of dollars that this great organization has then invested back into our communities. Each year the North Shore Rotary “Catfish Fry & Crawfish Boil” remains one of the most exciting events of the year. Rotary identifies many people and causes needing assistance during the year. ‘Service Above Self’ is a way of life for all Rotarians and it is that commitment that drives each of us to help those in need.

This year (like last year) COVID has not made it possible for us to have the fish fry part of the event and, while we will miss that part this year, safety is the most important aspect of any event. However, the Rotary MEGA Raffle will absolutely be held on May 15, 2021 at Turner Chevrolet and here are some of the great prizes you could win:

* Choice of 2021 Chevrolet Camaro or Colorado

THE POSTSCRIPT: Out Like a Lion

By Carrie Classon

March is winding down and my sister-in-law, Lori, is going with it.

There is too much food and too many flowers because that is what we do when someone is dying, when we don’t know what else to do as, gradually, the unthinkable becomes accepted and even ordinary. We make more food and bring more flowers. But there is too little time. There is always too little time.

Lori is spending most of the time she has left sleeping, which means she is not in pain but also that no one can talk with her and we miss her already, while she is here among us.

There are circles of grief, as I’ve heard it explained. Her husband, Robert, is at the center, and one ring out are her children and my husband, her brother. I am a bit further out in orbit, in Lori’s solar system of sorrow, missing her ready laugh and irreverent observations.
