Stockdale News: Chamber names Shiloh Harris as ’12 Jubilee grand marshal

The Stockdale Chamber of Commerce held its regular meeting March 26, and worked to finalize plans for the upcoming Watermelon Jubilee.

As I mentioned last month, the Jubilee parade route will be altered slightly for 2012 to accommodate ongoing construction on S.H. 123. As always, the parade route will follow Salmon Street in front of the Stockdale Nursing Center before heading north onto Eighth Street. From Eighth Street, the parade will turn east onto Person Street and then north again onto Ninth Street. From Ninth Street, the parade will turn left and head down Main Street to its conclusion in front of City Hall. As you can tell, the primary change to the parade route is that the parade will not flow onto S.H. 123 at all, again, to avoid the ongoing construction there.

We are very excited to announce that Wilson County resident and Wounded Warrior Shiloh Harris will be the grand marshal for the 2012 Watermelon Jubilee Parade. As many of you know, Shiloh is a retired U.S. Army staff sergeant who was severely burned by an improvised explosive device in Iraq in 2007, and his family was recently featured in the taping of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” for an episode that will air during the holiday season later this year. We are honored to have Shiloh as part of our Jubilee festivities this year.

Concerts

Supporting acts for the Friday, June 15, and Saturday, June 16, night concerts have now been finalized.

Kyle Bennett will open up on Friday night for the “Josh Abbott Band,” and Mark McKinney will open up on Saturday night for the “Randy Rogers Band.”

All Jubilee and Rodeo court candidates are busy selling pre-sale rodeo and concert tickets, as well as Chamber of Commerce memberships. Be sure to visit our website for candidate information and buy your tickets early to support these candidates and secure discounted pricing. Pre-sale tickets are $15 per person per night, but the tickets will be $20 per person per night if you purchase tickets at the gate! Tickets can also be purchased at www.ticketweb.com.

Like last year, the purchase of a personal Chamber of Commerce membership for $5 allows for free admission into the Coronation of Queen Melone LXVIII on Saturday, June 9. A personal membership will also provide for free parking for the duration of Jubilee weekend on the Jubilee grounds. The Stockdale Volunteer Fire Department and the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) will once again be assisting with parking for this year’s festival, and they will be charging $5 per car for access into the grounds for each night. All proceeds from parking will benefit the Stockdale Volunteer Fire Department and the EMS.

Queens Tea

This year’s Former Queens Tea will be held on Saturday, June 2, in the brand new cafeteria that was recently constructed to serve middle school and high school students at the Stockdale Independent School District. All former Jubilee and Rodeo queens are invited and encouraged to attend. We will share memories, meet the 2012 Jubilee and Rodeo court candidates, and tour the new cafeteria.

Miss Rodeo Texas 2012, Lauren Graham, will also be in attendance at this event.

Visit our website for more information and be on the lookout for your invitation in the mail in the next few weeks. If you are a former Jubilee or Rodeo queen and have not attended this event in the past, call me at 210- 771-1719 to provide your contact information so that we can make sure you receive an invitation. We look forward to seeing all of the former queens.

We are looking for sponsors and volunteers for this year’s Jubilee. It’s going to be a great time and a wonderful celebration of the heritage of our community. If you are interested in being a sponsor or a volunteer, contact any chamber director.

The next regular meeting of the Stockdale Chamber of Commerce board of directors will be held on Monday, April 30, at 7 p.m. in the offices of the Stockdale Economic Development Corp.

Until next month.

Sherry D. Lambeck is the president of the Stockdale Chamber of Commerce.

Chamber directors:

Sherry D. Lambeck, president
Damon Henry, vice president
Betty Soto, secretary
Rick Rutland, treasurer
Frank Bain Jr., director emeritus
Brent Akin, Louise Cranford, Paul Darilek, Josh Heimann, Josh Hussong, Randall Lingo, and Jesse Vela Jr.
