Delta County Toy Drive Underway
Nov 16 @ 9:52 pm – Dec 14 @ 10:52 pm
The Delta County Sheriff’s Office and other Delta County law enforcement are partnering again this year with all Delta County Fire Departments and EMS to gather Christmas toys for needy children in our area. The event is named Blue and Red Santa.

Law enforcement agencies are involved in toy drives for needy families across the country, and these events are generally named Blue Santa. In Delta County, our law enforcement ranks are relatively small, so we chose to partner with the Delta County Fire Departments and EMS, thus the name Blue and Red Santa.

We turn over all toys gathered during the event to the Child Protective Service Angel Tree program for Delta County. Each year 100 plus children are signed up by parents for this event in Delta County. These children are from families that are financially struggling and cannot provide much of a Christmas celebration for their families. We designed our Blue and Red Santa event to supplement the Christmas celebration for many of these families.

The Blue and Red Santa program help the community in two ways. Most importantly, it helps provide much-needed items to families in need and assists children who may not have much for Christmas. Second, it helps promote positive community relations between law enforcement/fire/EMS and the community.

The event will start on Tuesday, November 16, 2020, and end on December 14, 2020. Toys and cash donations may be dropped off at the Delta County Sheriff’s Office during this period to help support this event.

This year because of COVID-19, a drive-thru and to-go only stew/chili event will occur at the civic center on December 5, 2020, at approximately 6:30 pm. It is immediately after the Chamber of Commerce Christmas Parade. The price of a quart of stew or chili will be a toy or cash donation. We need quart jar donations for the stew or chili if anyone can help.

Families that need help may apply at the Delta County Court House just outside the County Judge’s office. Please join us this year to help create a merry Christmas for our children that might otherwise not have the benefit of a delightful holiday.

City of Mount Pleasant Presents Boot & Bells: An Olde West Christmas  

Historic Downtown Mount Pleasant will be a lively place to visit this holiday season as the City presents Boot & Bells: An Olde West Christmas from November 12 through December 27. 

 The all-new celebration will feature more than 1 million new Christmas lights adorning the Titus County Courthouse Square and Caldwell Park. There will also be horse-drawn carriage rides for just $25, Thursday to Sunday evenings beginning at 6:00 pm. Ride reservations must be booked online at www.mpcity.net to avoid waiting in lines and ensure social distancing.  

The Mount Pleasant City Hall, Public Library, and Utilities Billing Office will also offer a festive welcome to citizens and visitors with gorgeous Boot & Bells themed Christmas Trees that Brittany Wood and Lauren Kennedy designed and decorated. Additionally, the Downtown merchants are getting into the Boots & Bells spirit with their decorations and activities.

“Downtown Mount Pleasant is one of our greatest assets, and this year the City has worked hard to make it shine for Christmas,” said Mayor Tracy Craig, Sr. “It has been a challenging year for everyone due to the pandemic, so we are excited to do our part to help bring joy to the community and increase shopping and dining traffic for our businesses citywide.” 

 “We are extremely pleased to be able to offer an enhanced city celebration with a unique theme that we can hang our hat on not only this year but expand upon in the years to come,” added City Manager Ed Thatcher. “Mount Pleasant has the potential to become a Texas Holiday Destination of which our citizens can enjoy and take pride in.” 

 It all kicks off with a Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony and festivities on November 12 from 6 to 8:30 pm. The ceremony will be at 6:30 pm and feature the Mount Pleasant High School Jazz Band and other performances. The Mount Pleasant High School Strolling Choir will serenade attendees throughout the evening, and there will be treats for all in addition to the generous offerings of the Downtown restaurants and shops.

Please wear masks and social distance at this City event.
