THE PALOMINAS COMMUNITY
A community is defined as:
Over the coming weeks and months, I am hoping that in
addition to our input to this site, ALL residents of the Palominas community will
feel comfortable in contributing to the content found on the site. By this
I mean any activities or events planned within Palominas, photographs of scenic
or historical merit (people and/or places), historical stories about early
settlers, ranchers, and outlaws! The site's History pages will soon fill (I hope)
with all the information some long time residents can provide, and it will help
preserve the long heritage of this beautiful community.
Palominas is a small rural community, and I'm sure the majority of us would like to keep it that way. The population might be just over 1,000 (not counting horses, cattle, and dogs!), but I'm sure just a few short years ago, it was well under 500!
Please participate in your own way by providing either historical or activity information and to contribute to and keep alive the legacy and heritage of Palominas. A community that is informed is a community that weathers the storm, and storm clouds always seem to be gathering on our horizons, and not only from the south!
7, 2001: In the brief period of time that this site has been on the
internet, there have been (mostly friendly) remarks made by a few residents that
since Palominas( a fictitious place) now has its 'global' web page (not
intentional, I assure you), this will attract many more people to the community,
and eventually erode the rural character and beauty which we cherish so highly
and want to preserve.
Palominas Discussion Group (Via group email, not a chat room)
Feb 25, 2001: I urge everyone in Palominas to join with your neighbors and become part of the discussion group 'Palominas". If you don't, you may miss voicing your (important) thoughts on an issue or story you feel is important! It is not a 'chat room' and there is only a few emails a week. It is easy to do, and also to undo, if you care not to participate. But it is an great avenue to ask questions, and get them answered by other folks in the community, and find out more information that may not be on the website. We can, and are, discussing many community issues and events via an email connection, and you do not have to acquire a new email address or get new software. To join or just get information, just click on the 'Yahoo' button to the left. There are many topics we know need to be discussed such as the border issues, roads, growth, neighborhood associations, schools, phone service, county services - there's no limit! But it doesn't all have to be serious either. Please join in! If you're not sure, or having difficulties signing on, call us (366-5788) or email.
