Coldspring Chamber held its quarterly lunch at COISD High School this week. Chef Casidy and his students from the Culinary Arts program provided a delicious three course meal and we had Mayor Benestante give us a talk on his plans for the future of Coldspring. He was followed by Sheriff Capers who told us he needs more recruits for the police in our county. If you are interested, call the Sheriff’s department and ask for more information. After the meal, President of the Chamber, Barbara Justice, talked about the Wolf Creek Car Show on October 15 &16. She also mentioned the Christmas event in Coldspring, the theme this year is ‘A Gingerbread Christmas”. Door prizes had been donated by many businesses in town and one in particular from Peoples State Bank went to Cindy Chapman of Edward Jones Financial Investments. I wondered if she would get this enormous plant into the car! Camille Landry of Fullcope Pest Control  and Kari Duggar, also of Edward Jones, talked about the ‘Rock N Ride’ on November 12.


Kari said this is the 5th Annual ‘Rock N Ride’ and all cyclists are welcome, single, tandem or team. There is a choice of either a 28 or 52 mile route which goes through the Sam Houston National Forest. This is a great tourist draw, bringing many people into our area.
