REAGAN NEWS OF 1926
"Under the supervision of Sibyl Burnett, the little folks had evolved a spring cantata embodying the different phases of work done by them this year. Upon a stage beautifully decorated with vines and multi-colored flowers fashioned by the children themselves, the real flower children of Mother Nature gathered, being aided by Mr. Sun and the raindrops and accompanied by Mr. Frog and daintily beautiful butterflies. A violin interpretation of Mendelssohn's "Spring Song" was given by Alice Burkes and the piano music was provided by Marion Burnett.
Preceeding the holiday Thursday, the 4th and 6th grade pupils dirrected by Misses Ola Winzer and Helen Hotman, giving the following most credible San Jacinto program Wednesday afternoon. Explanation of the holiday meaning was provided by Allene Alston. Song, "Texas Bluebonnets" and "Meaning of San Jacinto Day", by Aldridge Chamberlain.

Reagan was, by 1910, a busy community of 600 persons and now had a bank and lumberyard. Saturdays would find the town bustling with activity as the nearby cotton farmers came to town to market, filling the sidewalks with people. The active little town also had a good school system. Ed Robbins was by now a school trustee, and a member of the board that hired Ben S. Peek as school superintendent in 1912.
Recreation for the five Robbins children was much simpler than that for the youth of today. The three girls used to like to take walks together, going down the railroad tracks to Fish Creek, or farther on down to what they called “the cut.” Fish Creek also offered recreation for the Robbins boys for fishing and swimming.
On Sunday afternoon, the young people would gather at the railroad station to watch the train come into town. Once a year, a circus came to Reagan, attracting people from all over the area. And there was Willard the Magician, a famed performer of his time, who also stopped in Reagan. Altogether, though, their entertainment was much simpler and people looked forward to visiting one another, and the company of their neighbor at a church gathering or picnic. Churches, and there were two, the Methodist and Baptist, created a large part of the social life of the town.
