This is it!! The Lockhart Parade is this Sunday, December 3 at 3 p.m.
If anyone wants to be in the parade, just show up by 2 p.m. at the Lockhart School, and Dale will place you in the line up. There is not a fee and at this point you don’t have to call, just show up.
If you are a vendor and have anything you want to sell just go to the center of town and Tammy will help you find a place.
I know the peanut lady will be behind town hall, as usual. Funnel Cakes by Pam will be across from the telephone exchange. The Chester Shriners will be walking up and down the street, selling goodies for the Shrine Hospital.
Festival Of Lights
After the parade we will be holding the Festival of Lights in the Lockhart First Baptist Church, you’re all invited to join us there, also. We will be presenting the trophies for the parade, and introduce our Parade Marshall, have singing, and so much more.
This is a sad time for Charles and Marshall Thomason. My sympathy goes to them for the loss of their son, Lee, this week.
Taking A Fall
There was a heavy frost Saturday morning, so guess whose feet went up in the air going down that stupid hill?
It was 7:15 a.m. and I was going to work and went down on my back. Nothing’s broke, as far as bones. But I think I broke my organs. Well, that’s how my back feels. I’m either on ice or heat. Standing on my feet all day is so painful, but I managed at work, but at the end of the day, I barely walk home.
I went to my Chiropractor, had an x-ray and compared it to the first one. So I had a little S shape to my spine at first, now with the fall my spine is almost straight. It sounded like two boards hitting together. It came from inside me, but I don’t know if that was my spine moving or what. Well, I just wanted to share my pain.
Don’t forget to let us know if you want your Memorial Angel put up again for the Christmas Holiday. Call Town Hall at 545-2103 or me at 545-6652.
We are having a new fence put up at the children’s playground, so the Angels will be put up after it’s finished.
I hope that we can respect the playground and not tear it up after we refix it up. I just don’t know what joy you get in tearing up the train, Noah’s Ark, picnic tables, etc. Let the children have a nice safe place to play. You don’t realize this, but in the future you will want to bring your children here to play, and be upset if someone else tears it up.
In the near future I will have monitors at the park to keep watch. We want to be proud of our little town, with your help.
Lost In Translation?
Before the Christmas gathering of our French Class, each student had written what he or she wanted most in the world on a slip of paper for the grab bag. When gifts were exchanged, many got cardboard models of sport cars or fake airline tickets. But a student who had requested an A in French unwrapped his gift to find this sign: Freanch.”
Four-year old to her two-year sister” “Let’s play Christmas. I’ll be Santa Claus, and you be a present and I’ll give you away.”
Well I’m going to say good night and go to bed, but remember this is the last two weeks for my Hospice box, if you want to contribute. Thanks a lot. Call at 1-864-545-6652.
