Shepherd Chamber of Commerce presented Pro Star Waste with their Business of the Month last week. This company has been very generous with their time, products, and financial help in many ways. San Jacinto County has been helped by them in many events, and they richly deserve this recognition.

Amanda Reynolds,who is their customer service representative, gave the chamber board members present a warm welcome. We were introduced to the members of the team and we learned of the gift of bicycles to children, how they sponsored many events and gave scholarships.

The Historical Commission of our county will hold an October festival on October 26. This will be a fun event with a pumpkin painting contest and a costume contest. There will be lots of activities for all of the family as well as an opportunity to visit the jail museum and the other buildings in old town Coldspring. Yes, you may have guessed this event will be held in old town Coldspring!

Of course the Historical Commission is also planning for the haunted jail and Halloween but before that there will be Heritage Day. This will be on September 28, when you will have a chance to be part of history in the old West. It will be a tongue-in-cheek version and will feature a shotgun wedding, a hold up and subsequent quick trial and hanging, with a chance again for visitors to dress up in costume.

This event starts in the morning, with the wedding taking place around noon. Vendors will be there and if you want to be a vendor, booths are $10. More information call Barbara at 936- 653–2332.

Coldspring Chamber of Commerce is prepared for their 35th Wolf Creek Car Show. This is held at the Wolf Creek RV park on FM 224. It is always a great event, with many fascinating vehicles to look at, even if you are not showing your own car! There are vendors, music, food and drink, set in the most beautiful RV park on Lake Livingston. For more information call Coldspring Chamber.

The San Jacinto County Democratic Party meet every month at Coldspring Community Center at 6 PM. Dinner is served promptly at 6 PM, and the meeting is held there after. This Community center is the one beside the courthouse. Call 936–4 42–1218 for more information.
