       There is a lot going on in our area and here are some of the events to watch out for! Are you looking for a job? Or perhaps want to change the one you have? On February 28 there will be a 'Hiring Event Information Session' at Workforce Solutions in Livingston. This event is in two sections. The first starts at 7.45 AM and is a Pre- Employment Testing for those who want to be Correctional Officers at T.D.C.J. If you are interested in working for the Texas Dept. of Corrections, go to www.TDCJ.texas.gov and select 'Schedule Co. Pre-Employment Screening.'

       The other part is for those who wish to learn more of what is offered and the list here is long. It includes jobs in Laundry, Food Service, Administration, Maintenance, Parole, Agriculture and Industry. For this, please arrive by 8 AM and you will be able to learn exactly what is on offer and also get help filling out applications. The location is Workforce Solutions at 1241 W. Church St. Livingston 77351. You can call them at 877Work4TX or call Earl Brown TCDJ Prospector at 832-599-2260. 

       Here is another group partnership. The Republican Party of our county is joining with the Priesthood Motorcycle Ministry, Cut & Shoot Chapter, to have a 'Sole Drive'. To be held on February 22 from 10.30 AM till 7 PM or until they run out of supplies. This is a Crawfish Boil fundraiser to buy shoes for children who live in poverty in our area. The event will be at the Republican headquarters at 201 Hwy 150 in Coldspring. Shoes will be distributed on Passover Sunday to the needy children.  I have a feeling they will run out of supplies before 7PM! Call Duane Hamilton at 936-537-0908 or Dwayne Wright at 832-579-6005. 

       Coldspring Chamber of Commerce is beginning the planning of our next bi-annual Directory. To be released by December 12, which will be the 38th Christmas on the Square, it offers members a wonderful chance to showcase their business or service by having an ad in this glossy paged Directory. It may seem a little early to be thinking about this, but the last day to book your spot is late summer and the best spots sell out fast. So, if you want the first or last page or the middle pages, start thinking about your ad and go to the Chamber website for sizes and prices for color or black/white.  Ads can be dropped off at the office or emailed to www.chambercoldspringtexas@gmail.com. Remember, this directory is for 2021-2022, so it is a great deal.
