Birds take flight in Cherokee County

Jacksonville Daily Progress

JACKSONVILLE — Ms. Hale and I want to give a heart-felt ‘thank you’ to those who bought a “Bluebird of Happiness.”  

Your generosity made our flight to raise funds for H.O.P.E. successful beyond our wildest dreams. Every Bluebird that took flight down highway seventy nine this year found a nest with a new family.

Not only that but we have orders in hand for almost that many more!   We will continue to take orders for “Bluebirds of Happiness” for the rest of the month.  

Contact H.O.P.E. at 595 S. Ragsdale St Jacksonville, TX 75766 by going by or send a check made to H.O.P.E.in the amount $35.00 (or more) for each Bluebird you want to order.

Executive Director Allison Hale can be reached at 903-586-7781.  Please allow two weeks for your order to be filled.

The local business people who supported us with both a place to fly and donations to Hope deserve our thanks, gratitude and support for going above and beyond to help make our program a success: Outdoor Connection, J & L Resale, Bill McRae Ford, The Jalapeño Tree Mexican Restaurant, The Fruit Stand, Dog & Spud, Dairy Queen, C-J’s Quick Stop, Cindy’s Floral and Gifts, Clean and Brite Coin Laundry, Taco Bell and the Jacksonville Fire De-partment.

They are good neighbors to H.O.P.E. and the local community.

Thank you,

Calvin Howell
