Here we are in the last month of 2021! Christmas events in our county are organized and all that is needed is good weather for both the Shepherd and Coldspring celebrations. I have talked about them before of course but this is the last week to mention Shepherd’s day on Saturday December 4. The Parade will start at 6 PM. Entrants should call me at the numbers below if they are unsure of the route. Floats should start lining up along Liberty St. to be judged, from 4 PM onward. The Grand Marshal is TD’s owner Naam Meridia, with elected officials including Sheriff Capers and celebrities from the sports world included with the school contingent of Band, Drill Team, Cheer Leaders and much more!

The Christmas Maze is almost complete. Located at the Impact Center on N. Byrd Ave it will be open till 10 PM. After walking through the rooms in the Maze there will be a live Nativity Scene. During the day the Kris Kringle Cornhole Tournament (Cash Prizes for winners!) will be at the Community Center as will the Costume Contest and Games. Food vendors are outside but all other vendors will be inside with Santa. Shop for your gifts here. Handmade goods and candles, jewelry and belt buckles, scented oils and baked goods. There will be a white elephant stall and free books from Shepherd Library are some of the items to be had. Live music from the Downtown Renegades will entertain everyone!

The Impact Center now has outdoor rest rooms! One is handicapped available and they have a beautifully made ramp leading to them. This project has taken a lot of time and money for the board members ofr the Center, but at last it is done and people will be able to use them during these outdoor events and when the food truck is there.

Coldspring’s Christmas event follows on December 11 round the Courthouse Square. Vendors have signed up with all the varied goods we have come to expect there. Food and live music as well as the Kids Zone hosted by the First Baptist Church will make this a very special day for everyone. The Parade will take the usual route through town and promises to be spectacular. Shops around the Square will be open for gift buying so there will be something for everyone in these two special celebrations.

Did you know that the Dry Cleaning business in Shepherd is also a Ladies Boutique? Not only that, it is also a place where you can get a sun tan. The Boutique, Texas Glam Girlz, has a new shipment of fine leopard skin patterned dusters and jackets as well as a lot of glitzy jewelry. Tops, dresses, leggings etc are also available in different colors and styles. Look in and try on some of these latest things for the holiday season. Treat yourself as well as for those on your list for Christmas gifts.
