Stockdale News: Chamber promotes website, holiday plans
The Stockdale Chamber of Commerce would again like to thank all the volunteers and sponsors that helped to make the 67th annual Watermelon Jubilee a success. This was one of the best celebrations ever and we could not have put it on without all the wonderful people that gave of their time and money. Profits from the Jubilee will be used for scholarships, donations, and civic improvements. Only about eight months to go until the 68th annual Jubilee!
Please visit our community website, www.stockdaletx.org, and give us feedback. The information there is only as accurate as what we have available. You can drop off written comments and suggestions at the Stockdale City Hall. We are now featuring business members of the chamber. The rodeo and Jubilee court candidates sold business memberships as part of their fund-raising requirements for the Jubilee. You can still become a business member of the chamber if you missed the opportunity. Information is on the website.
Like many retailers, we are already looking forward to the Christmas holiday season. The chamber will once again sponsor the annual Christmas Lighting contest, so start planning your displays now.
The chamber will also sponsor the annual Christmas in Stockdale event on Saturday, Dec. 1. There will be pictures with Santa, entertainment, a holiday cookie contest, and more. This will also serve as a collection site for the Sheriff Santa Program to provide toys for underprivileged children of Wilson County.
The chamber and the Stockdale Garden Club will cosponsor the annual Senior Citizens Luncheon on Wednesday, Dec. 19. This event has been celebrated for more than 20 years, and treats seniors to a holiday meal in a social setting. If you would like to make a cash donation to help support this project, make your check payable to the Stockdale Garden Club and mail to: Stockdale Chamber of Commerce, P.O. Box 578, Stockdale, TX 78160.
Look for more details on all these holiday events next month.
Rick Rutland is the secretary of the Stockdale Chamber of Commerce.
