Lefors is a good town!
I am a college student at Navarro, but my home town is Lefors TX. Igraduated from Lefors last spring, and I really miss my home town.Lefors is a close knit community with a lot of good old folks. We havethree churches, First Baptist, Church of Christ, and the MethodistChurch, which is quite historic. Our high school has approximately 140students K-12. I actually graduated in a class of 13, and five of thestudent had started kindergarten together. We took our senior trip toWalt Disney world, and it was great. Lefors is a small town, but it's agood town. I wish more people could understand that we are not just some"hick" town. This is how I feel about my hometown. Thanks, Tenille Franks
