The Chamber of Commerce is making plans for the annual Christmas parade through downtown Pittsburg, set for Saturday (Dec 3) 1:00 pm. This year’s theme is “Christmas at the Movies.” Floats and decorated vehicles compete for a first, second and third place. The entry fee is $25 for floats and $10 for vehicles. There is no entry fee for those who do not wish to be judged, however, each entry requires a completed application. Cash Prizes are made possible by our sponsors, Brookshire’s, Guaranty Bank & Trust, ETEX Crude, First National Bank, Luminant, Tommy Lee Insurance and Mayben Realty.
“Thanks to Mitch Mayben and Robert Peoples, we have added a new category this year, Bicycles.” To enter the parade, pick up applications at the Chamber office. Return parade applications by Thursday (Dec 1).
Friday (Nov 11) at 11:00 am, there is a Veterans Program at the Courthouse.
The First Annual Chili Cook-Off is Saturday (Nov 12) from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm. It takes place at Thunderbird VFD Firehouse. If you want to enter your award winning chili, please contact Pam Goforth at firstname.lastname@example.org or for more info call Jerry Goforth at 767-5439.
From Frankie B. King at Texas Country Farm Supply. Now is a good time to do a soil test and if the test calls for increasing the ph, now is an excellent opportunity to apply lime. Over the winter, the lime will leach into the root zone making the fertilizer you use next spring more available to your plants. Be sure and till under this year’s crop residue to help reduce insect overwintering.
Just want to make sure everyone knows about our Home for the Holidays event taking place November 25, 26 & 27 downtown. We will have an ice skating rink, open air market, free movies in Pilgrim Plaza, Santa Claus and more. Our hope is that this will attract both community members and people from other surrounding communities. This event might be a good time to advertise sales, specials, have sidewalk sales, etc. and capitalize on all the people we are planning on being in town for this event!
Be sure to check the chamber website for more things going on in the area, Have a great weekend,
