2022 Calendar Front Cover.jpg

The first activity to celebrate the Jacksonville sesquicentennial is the release of the 2022 historical calendar.

The initial opportunity to obtain a copy of the calendar will be through a reception at the Jacksonville Public Library Monday, Nov. 22. There will be two times periods, 12-1 p.m. and 4-6 p.m., when the calendars will be available.

Be among the first to obtain the calendar celebrating Jacksonville’s 150 years of history. The calendars are $10 each. Proceeds from the sale of calendars will help with the preservation of the county’s history, with funds divided between the Cherokee County Historical Commission and the Vanishing Texans Museum.

The calendar committee consisted of a mix of members from the two entities and included Janie Barber, Deborah Burkett, Shelley Cleaver, Barbara Hugghins, Nadine Locke and John Thomason.

The Jacksonville Public Library is located at 526 E. Commerce. The library can be contacted by phone, 903-586-7664, or via email, library@jacksonvilletx.org.
