Did You Know?
I am writing this on Memorial Day. We all share the gratitude we have for the heroes, men and women, who gave their lives for their country. I know we feel the same about the heroes who are doing the same for us in our hospitals, first responders and all those who put themselves in harm's way to help and save others.
Local restaurants are open again although with some restrictions. Usually this involves moving tables to make space but how pleasant it is to see the 'Open' sign lit up in their windows. We are lucky to live in the country where we have plenty of space around us but we still have restrictions and it seems getting back to normal is some way off. Coldspring Chamber of Commerce is looking ahead to the Fall when the Wolf Creek Car Show takes place. It is difficult to plan for an event, one which thousands of people attend, when the pandemic may make it impossible to hold it. However, hoping for the best outcome here, the Chamber has started the planning for this major event in our area.
Unfortunately Shepherd Chamber of Commerce will not be able to hold their annual Independence Day event. The firework display will be on hold and will be added to the Christmas Event and Parade. We did this some years ago when we could not have the fireworks because of a Burn Ban. It was really wonderful to have it accompany the Christmas Parade.
