We had a great crowd and a lot of fun, good food and good friends. Thank you to everyone who came out to the park. KSSL Radio did a wonderful job hosting our show. The SHS cheerleaders brought back the Little Mr. and Miss Firecracker. This year's recipients were Cohen Sackett and Millie McGinnis.
Lights on the Square
Thank you to Jim Andrus, Brooke Etheredge, Patsy Vessels, Mike Lamberson, and Barbara Hopper for spearheading the fund raising efforts for the lights. Local businesses and individuals stepped up and supported this effort with enough money to fund the initial purchase of lights and supplies.
After much research the directors found lights that would meet our needs while holding up in typical West Texas weather. Installation was a long painstaking process The wind fought our efforts, but we did prevail. Thank you to directors who came out to help. A few of the City employees worked diligently on the trees, electricity, wiring and installation of the lights for several days. Many thanks to each of you. Volunteers from Slaton ISD Maintenance Department took over one day to help out, again, thank you. We hope everyone will enjoy the lights. This is only the beginning. Watch for more as the Chamber moves forward with a new vision for Slaton.
