Week Six of the Texas Plains Trail Stamp Cancellation was held in Dimmitt, Texas on February 10. So much fun to see and hear about all the wonderful projects that each town has going on. Clara Vick, Castro County Historical Commission is such an asset to their community. She has spent countless hours with the Museum and POW Camp North of Dimmitt. Thanks to Mike Hodges, Dimmitt Postmaster and Judge Bill Sava for their help. Rick Vanderpool and I had a great time with the 4th and 7th graders. Thanks to Beverly Schulte and the other teachers for allowing us time out of class--especially with TAKS test on the loom. Oh, and a big high five for our lunch out at the Country Club. Judge Sava's suggestion gets high fives from all of us at the Plains Trail Region. Visit Dimmitt's website here.

"The Carter Family, the first residents, had ties to the Amon Carter family of Ft. Worth, Dimmitt has one of the 1930's Ozark Trail markers, and then the wonderful and painful stories of the POW Camps .I hope to return to visit the museum. There was a lot of energy in the town and everyone could not have been nicer. I know we made a great friends for the Trail in Castro County." Dolores Mosser, TPTR Board Chair
