This year the City of Pittsburg is hosting a new event, “Pittsburg by Candlelight”. It is a walking tour of three homes The Heath Home, the Abernathy House and the Holman House, as well as the farmstead museum and the Methodist Church. The event will be on December 8 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. The City is anticipating several hundred people participating in the tour.
At this time, the Pittsburg by Candlelight planning committee is recruiting volunteers to work the night of the event. Volunteers who work the event get to take the tour of the homes the Thursday night prior for free (so they won’t miss out by working).
We need people to be at a tent outside each home and check in each guest (stamp their tour book).
People to help inside the homes answer questions about the house – will give info about the house – can go ahead of time and work with the owner to learn about the house
People inside homes/museum to help serve light refreshments
If you are unable to volunteer the night of the event, volunteers will be needed ahead of time to help decorate the homes.
If you would like to volunteer, please contact Niecy Baum at 903-856-3621.

DANNY SCHMIDT Named to the Chicago Tribune’s “50 Most Significant Songwriters in the Last 50 Years,” Austin, TX-based singer/songwriter Danny Schmidt has been rapidly ascending from underground cult hero status to being recognized as an artist of generational significance.

Saturday, August 18th – 7:30 p.m.
ANDREW SULLIVAN is a 29-year-old singer/songwriter based in Fort Worth, TX.
