Come see us...

Goree is a quaint, quiet town with easy access to the lake, guided hunting/fishing, hunting lodges, RVing, camping and extremely affordable real estate for your very own hunting headquarters. Finally, Goree has the last stop for bait, beverages and snacks before heading to the lake, Millers Creek Reservoir.

We have the keys to the Goree School!!!

We have taken an assessment of the condition of the school and there is much work to be done before our first BIG event. The Cotton Pickin' Quilt Show is ON for February 2010 hosted by the GGG, Going for Greatness in Goree Group. Our theme is 'Old School' with a fifties flare. But, there is MUCH to do:

  • The old gym was a storage room for the school and stuff must be moved or trashed. There is a literal computer graveyard.

  • Several rooms do not have carpet, in the event we even need them for this event.

  • Water fountain needs to be replaced in hallway.

  • Clean, clean, clean...everywhere.

  • System developed for hanging the guide wires and wooden stands for the quilts.

  • Kitchen revamped for the homemade meal to be served in the "Cotton Pickin' Cafe". Tables and chairs moved from various places on campus.

  • Sixty-six volunteers to cook: 22 pans of chicken spagetti, 22-fruit salads, 22-desserts

  • Food Serving Team

  • Decorating Team

  • Marketing Team

  • The Quilt Guild has offered to do the hospitality room for the vendors and they have offered to 'handle' the quilts.

  • The Munday Chamber has offered to make the goody sacks.

  • We have 17 vendors signed up.

  • And quilts, quilts, quilts to enter in the show at $2.00 entry fee each.

Contact the City of Goree if you can help in any of these areas or if you'd simply be able to make a GGG donation to help in the process. May the Lord bless and help us keep this building alive and useful by providing funds for utilities and insurance. We are expecting great things. Join us!
