    March 23 is going to be a very busy day in our area. First it is Trades Day in Coldspring Courthouse Square. It coincides with 'Trash To Treasure, the annual cross county garage sale. You can have your garage sale 'put on the map' by calling C.A.B.M.A. They will be distributing maps of all the sales who have entered their address or of course you can book your space on the square.
 
   On the same day Coldspring Garden Club holds its '80th Birthday Spring Fling' in the Community Center next to the Courthouse, at 101 E.

Proceeds will be used to beautify Coldspring.
 
    Brenda Myers and her team are working hard on 'Hug a Tree, Kiss a Fish' which will be at Camp Cullen in May. Their Facebook page lists the many celebrities coming to this event, including stars from 'Swamp People' and 'Pitbulls and Parolees'. Added to the many different activities is a Friday night concert called "Singing Under The Stars". If you are interested in performing and have a great voice call 832-386-9237 to set up an audition.
