“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” This has always been my favorite Maya Angelou quote, and it is the reason I create experiences for most meals I cook. You might be thinking, “I do not have the time to cook fabulous dishes with amazing experiences.” I would tell you that you do. As an entrepreneur, mom, and wife, I have learned to create delicious meals in no time.

Clay’s Golf and Guitars Through the Years…

How It All Began … In May 2014, friends of Gail and Dr. Ed Eichler held a crawfish boil to celebrate the life of their son, Clay, who passed away earlier that year. The crawfish boil was held on Clay’s birthday (a birthday shared with his older brother, Edward) as an opportunity to share memories and uplift the family. It was quickly evident that this memorial would become an annual gathering to raise funds for the community. The Clay Eichler Memorial Fund was created in 2014, and the first Clay’s Golf and Guitars fundraiser was held May 30, 2015, at Texas A&M University-Texarkana.

Books for Grads

For many graduates, this could mean heading off to an oversized elementary school that makes you feel tiny, leaving the comforts of your childhood hometown to embark on a brave new world, or packing up your college apartment and thinking, now what? … Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile, The Road Back to You:

Class of 2023

No one gets a diploma alone. The teachers, administrators, family, and friends who contribute to a graduate’s future are real heroes. CONGRATULATIONS from Texarkana Magazine!
