Teen Night at Shepherd Library was a success with 15 teens showing up to play board games and eat brownies, made for the occasion by Crystale who hosted the event. It will continue on the first Monday of each month from 6 PM- 8 PM.
Do you like Bluegrass music? On February 27 around the Coldspring Courthouse Square there will be a ongoing 'Pick and Jam' Bluegrass entertainment throughout the day. This is sponsored by Rosalie's Cottage, which is a delightful store facing the Courthouse, and will be an addition to the usual monthly Trades Day. This is also the day for the Annual Trash to Treasure Sale which is when our county holds garage sales round the courthouse and across San Jacinto County. You can find out where these garage sales are located by the map of. Of course there will be many yard sales which are not on the map! You can have fun driving around finding them. However, vendors around the Square pay to hold their sales there and you will be able to shop at these booths and listen to the Bluegrass music too!
Coldspring Chamber now has its 'Best of San Jacinto County' form on its web site. Vote for your favorite business there and look for more information coming for the Chamber's 'Banquet' in March.
