American Legion Post 629 will open the Independence Day activities in Shepherd with Flag Ceremony
I expect most people know San Jacinto County is under a Burn Ban? However, we are ‘supposed’ to get rain this week so let’s see if that changes things! Shepherd will still have Independence Day celebration on Saturday July 2, starting at 11 AM with the American Legion Post 629 holding the Flag Ceremony. Vendors will be at the Community Center well before that and the Volley Ball and Corn Hole Tournaments will start earlier too. The Band will perform after the Flag Ceremony and later we will have our guest singers, Jinda Harris and Allyson Moses. Jinda is also called ‘Lady Songbird’ and has recorded her music and played in many countries. Patriotic Costume Contest for adults/ children & Youth/Pets will be held, each category has a trophy! Fireworks will be at 9 PM.
Coldspring Chamber of Commerce has completed the remodeling of the interior of the office and rental rooms. We also now have our own storage unit! Please come visit when you can. There will be an Open Day for the Public soon.
