If you have not gotten your 2018 calendar yet, The Treasures of the Texas Coast Calendar has a Morgan Mill winner. Laura “Corinne” Buchanan, age 10, is featured on the August page. Mom, Shannon, may have a few more copies. It is great to see our kids recognized on the state level. She has had her pictures displayed in the Stephenville Library earlier this year.
