Stockdale News: Christmas Lighting Contest winners, more

The members of the Stockdale Chamber of Commerce are looking forward to the holiday season. The “Christmas in Stockdale” event was a wonderful success. So many toys were collected that Santa could barely get them in his sleigh. We look forward to an even bigger event next year.
The chamber and the Stockdale Garden Club are sponsoring the annual Senior Citizens Christmas Luncheon Wednesday, Dec. 19. This event has been held for more than 20 years, and treats seniors to a holiday meal in a social setting.
The annual Christmas Lighting Contest judging took place on the evening of Dec. 12. It was a very difficult decision due to all the beautiful displays.
The winners include: Best Business, Harper’s Boutique; Most Holiday Spirit, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Baker; Most Colorful, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Hassmann; Most Creative, Mrs. Dorothy Ellison; Most Elegant, Mr. and Mrs. Carter Lambeck; and Best Overall, Mr. and Mrs. Neal Bennett.
The chamber has also been involved in supporting civic projects. Donations thus far have been made to: Stockdale High School yearbook, Stockdale Project Graduation, the Stockdale Blue Bonnet Club, the Stockdale ISD Minigrants, the Bain-Chandler Library, the Stockdale Band Boosters, and the Stockdale Elementary Winter Wonderland.
We again would like to thank all those that help with the chamber functions. As a completely volunteer organization, we could not survive without our volunteers.
If anyone would like to become involved and help with the chamber, contact any director or leave a message at Stockdale City Hall.
Only six months to go until the Stockdale Watermelon Jubilee!
Rick Rutland is the secretary of the Stockdale Chamber of Commerce.
