FERRIS PUBLIC LIBRARY: More than books (Feb. 28, 2019)
Mrs. Bea Wallace commissioned Rick Brettell to help her publish a book on the South Creek Ranch as a tribute to her late husband, Mr. Ray Wallace. This book is fabulous. It has superbly captured photographs and fascinating text filled with history. If you have ever wanted to take a tour of the South Creek Ranch aka Wallace Ranch you can now do so through the pages of this book. Mrs. Wallace has generously donated copies for the Ferris Public Library to sell and keep the proceeds.
Show-Some-Love: Support Your Local Library! We will be raffling off two of the South Creek Ranch books. I truly love this book, my words don’t do it justice, and encourage you to visit the Ferris Public Library and see it for yourself. After viewing it, I’m sure you’ll be intrigued and want one for yourself and to buy one as a gift for a friend. You will not find a better coffee table book in any bookstore. The raffle drawing will be on Apr. 12, you do not need to be present to win. Tickets are one for $3 or two for $5. Remember – all proceeds go to support the Ferris Public Library. Your support is greatly appreciated!
