traffic lights.  The first light is in front of Beaumont Fire Station 8 
and should be flashing yellow.  A few blocks further, the next light is 
at Major Drive. The last light you should pass will be Reigns/Tram 
Road.  After passing this light you will want to move to your right 
lane, where you will see a green /_Bevil Oaks->_/ sign, Vautreaux's 
Restaurant, Darbys, A Citgo Station and Donut Palace.  There will be a 
large Welcome to Bevil Oaks sign and a Right Turn Lane.  Turn right on 
to Sweetgum and go approximately 0.8 mile and on your right you will see 
a large sign that says: Larouse Park, V.C. Hall Memorial Civic Center & 
City of Bevil Oaks Council Chambers.  You are there, 7390 Sweetgum.

SKYWARN is a concept developed in the late 1960s that was intended to 
promote a cooperative effort between the National Weather Service and 
communities. The emphasis of the effort is often focused on the storm 
spotter, an individual who takes a position near their community and 
reports wind gusts, hail size, rainfall, and cloud formations that could 
signal a developing tornado.
SKYWARN is a voluntary program developed by the National Weather Service 
(NWS) to improve the warning program. Storm Spotter volunteers serve as 
severe weather spotters for the NWS and local emergency management 
programs, and generally have two things in common - an interest in the 
weather and an interest in serving their community.
SKYWARN storm spotters are part of the ranks of citizens who form the 
Nation’s first line of defense against severe weather. There can be no 
finer reward than to know that their efforts have given communities the 
precious gift of time–seconds and minutes that can help save lives.

If you are interested in becoming a SKYWARN Storm Spotter please join us 
at the Bevil Oaks Civic Center located at 7390 Sweetgum, Bevil Oaks, 
Texas 77713 on: Thursday March 26th from 6:30PM to 8:30PM.
