The Alzheimer’s Association invites Big Country residents to unite in a movement to reclaim the future for millions by participating in the Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Saturday, September 20, 2014. The two-mile Walk begins at 8:00 am with opening ceremonies led by this year’s honorary chair, Mayor Norm Archibald. Before they begin their trek, walkers will join in a meaningful ceremony to honor those affected by Alzheimer's disease. Those living with Alzheimer’s will be honored and those who have succumbed to the disease are remembered. The Walk will take place at Rose Park Senior Center located at S. 7th and Barrow Street in Abilene. Walkers will return to a festive atmosphere with refreshments, prizes, team photos, face painting for children and the well-loved music of Big Country’s own Elvis tribute artist Harvey McFadden.
Warren Taylor’s watercolors combine a complex network of layers. A base of historical art references and present day themes is topped by three-dimensional objects juxtaposed to the underlying complex flat planes, reflecting our responses to time, to the past, and to present realities. Taylor taught at Midland College for 32 years, and his work has been exhibited in the United States, China, Japan, and England. Gallery 4, Center for Contemporary Arts, 220 Cypress Street, September 9 - October 25, 2014. Open Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.

On October 4, 2014, we are holding our second annual “Help the Heroes: Buzzi Bash”. This event will again benefit the five volunteer fire departments in Nolan County (Maryneal, Nolan, Blackwell, Roscoe, and Lake Sweetwater) with all of the proceeds divided equally among the departments. Last year, the Buzzi Bash was able to raise $10,000 which was divided five ways and donated to the local fire departments. We hope to double that figure this year. We are constantly aware of the great value that the services our area volunteer fire departments give to every individual in our community. Many of us would have lost a great deal had they not been protecting us from the flames during the summer of 2011. These volunteers are only able to do this through donations and fund-raisers. We would like to ask that everyone in the community stand with us to support them and thank them for their service. This year’s event includes a cook-off with several new categories and entry options and even more activities for the whole family than last year. Everyone is invited!
