       I hope you had a wonderful July 4th even if it had to be inside! Of course many people had their own fireworks in their back yard and we had plenty to watch on TV. If you would like to see what San Jacinto County did for the celebration, you can go to the Facebook page of San Jacinto County Radio and watch the video there. This is thanks to the founders of our SanJac Radio, Dale Everett and Charles Ballard!


       Coldspring Chamber of Commerce is working on Wolf Creek Car Show, hopefully to be held in October. This will be the 36th annual Car Show hosted by the Chamber and is always well attended at the beautiful Wolf Creek RV Park. Sponsorships for this event can be obtained at many levels, from $100 to $300. Businesses can donate items to go into the 'goodie' bags which are given to all entrants. This is a good way to advertise your business with pens, mugs, writing pads etc. We give out 250 bags, so this is a an excellent way to sponsor and get out the word about your business. The Board members are in the process of choosing the theme for Christmas on the Square. I will let you know next week which theme got the most votes.


       The Coldspring Chamber also chose the winners of the scholarship awards. All who entered wrote excellent essays and the committee was happy to give Makenzie Taylor, Ashlynn Ballew and Darcy Scott scholarships of $500 each. Gage Tyson was awarded $800. Congratulations to each one! We look forward to hearing from you in the future with your news.
      
        Let us hope we will soon be through this trying time so that we can get back to 'business as usual'. Stay safe!
