The Van Zandt County Genealogical Society met Jan. 28, at the Van Zandt County Library for their monthly meeting.  After the pledge to the American flag, Martha’s Moment by Martha Heard was given.  Mrs. Heard related interesting facts about previous presidential elections. She also spoke about the whooping cranes that winter in Texas, and a festival which is held in Aransas Pass at the end of February that celebrates these endangered birds.

Jan Crow, outgoing president, presented certificates of recognition of service to the board officers who served under her.
