Hughes/Horseshoe Lake News

By Holly Bacon Youth Garden

The Horseshoe Lake Youth Group, is sponsored by the Hughes Town & Country Club Garden. They will have their first summer meeting on June 6, at 1 p.m., at the Horseshoe Lake Library. If it rains, then it will be rescheduled for June 7, at 1 p.m. Children 6 years old and up are welcome to attend. The first meeting will be preparing the planters for flowers and vegetables to be planted.


Congratulations go out to Brittany Nelson, she graduated from Liberty University in Virginia, in May. Brittany received her bachelor’s degree in paralegal studies with honors. She is finishing this degree to pursue her education to become a lawyer. Enjoying this adventure with Brittany was her mom, Deana Fisher of Horseshoe Lake. Brittany made all the arrangements and they visited New York, D.C. and Virginia. A beautiful summary from Brittany was “That weekend was a most memorable vacation to date. Brittany took her mom on her first plane ride, hopped around the country to show her things she’s never seen before. Graduation is supposed to start a new chapter, in your life, but Brittany thinks it started a new chapter for both of them.”
