Fisher County Historical News

By Roenna Thomas

The monthly meeting of the Fisher County Historical Commission was attended by 15 members at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, October 2nd. A brief business part of the meeting was followed with an interesting presentation concluding Zenita Gardner’s ranch series.

Hinson selected an approximately 50 mile by 30 mile section of open range which covered the entire area of Kent County and small parts of Scurry,

Fisher County Historical News

By Roenna Thomas

The Fisher County Historical Commission was delighted with a surprise guest speaker, Mary Mahaffey. Mrs. Mahaffey from the Fisher County Food Bank presented a short program and answered many questions about the Food Bank, which was started by churches and concerned citizens of Fisher County in the 1980’s along with a Clothes Closet in Roby. The Food Pantry is kept open by donations from groups, businesses and individuals. All monies earned at the Clothes Closet go to buy commodities for the Food Bank. The Food Bank and Clothes Closet are staffed with unpaid volunteers.

The food bank does buy some of their food from the Abilene Food Bank and Thriftway (at cost) in Rotan. Food drives are another good source for the food bank, but they have slowed significantly in past months.

Although the center is known to deliver meals to local residents all throughout the year, serving the Hunter’s Appreciation Breakfast is just one more of the many ways the center gives back to its community. Although originally started by Stephanie Mullen and the Chamber of Commerce, the breakfast was picked up by the center after the chamber disbanded.
