We are in the planning stages of this year’s Pioneer Days. We are adding a lot this year to make it better. This plan means we will need more volunteers than ever before, if you would like to help grow this into one of the major events in North East Texas, Please contact Allen at the Chamber office 903-856-3442.
We are still collecting applicants for Pioneer Peach Queen contest. If anyone knows of a young lady that would like to be a contestant for Pioneer Peach Queen, please contact James Wallace at firstname.lastname@example.org. Contestant must be a beginning senior for fall 2017.
We are still looking for a trailer for a permanent home for the Queen float. It needs to be a hay trailer type. Keep an eye out, ask of farmers and rancher friends. It’d be good if someone could donate one.
The Independence Day Blast event is CASA’s annual fundraiser in support of our mission to help abused and neglected children. We are asking the local churches assist us by requesting two or three volunteers from your church to help with the activities. Contact:
