Special Delivery at Octavia Fields

We are proud to announce that on Tuesday, November 2, 2009, Octavia Fields received a special delivery weighing 19 pounds.  The big bundle was hand delivered by our U.S. Congressman, Ted Poe.  It is a 2 volume set and contains a total of 1,990 pages of the latest health care bill filed in the House of Representatives.  The bill is also accessible on line, but if you want to see it and actually hold in your hands, it is available for the public to view at the Octavia Fields reference desk.
