Stockdale News: ‘Christmas in Stockdale’ winners
The last regular meeting of the Stockdale Chamber of Commerce was held Dec. 2, and the board was busy with plans for “Christmas in Stockdale,” which was held Dec. 7. Although weather was a challenge and forced the cancellation of the first Reindeer Run 5K and Children’s Jingle Bell Fun Run, all other events went off without a hitch and everyone seemed to enjoy the festivities -- including Santa!! Thank you to all of our patrons, vendors, guests, and volunteers for a great day. Thank you also to everyone who donated toys to the Wilson County Sheriff Santa Program.
Winners of the Christmas Art Show included Felix Medina, first place; Shannon Fraiser, second; and Kyler McBlane, third.
Winners of the Santa Paws dog show were:
•Small/medium division --
Princess, first place; Queso, second; and Chloe, third.
•Large division winner -- Bruno
•Best in Show -- Princess.
Winners of the Cookie Decorating Contest were:
•12 and under -- Cutter Clancy, first place; Payton Lerma, second; and Jalietza Zepeda, third.

New director emeritus
During the evening of Dec. 7, the Chamber of Commerce hosted a Christmas party for all of its 2013 Watermelon Jubilee volunteers.
Former director Rick Rutland and his wife, Pat, were in attendance, and Rick was surprised with an announcement that he had been voted in as a director emeritus by the other board members. Rick was presented with a custom belt buckle in appreciation for his service to the chamber of commerce over the past 25 years. He now joins former director Frank Bain Jr. as director emeritus on the board.
More winners for the annual Christmas Lighting Contest were chosen during the week of Dec. 9 and included: Neal and Giselle Bennett, Best Overall; Grace Gann, Most Elegant; Jesse Vela and Erma Martinez, Most Colorful; Edwin and Leslie Baker, Most Creative; the Salinas Family, Most Holiday Spirit; and All Tucked Inn, Best Business.
In other business, the Chamber of Commerce voted unanimously to make the following donations:
•$250 to Stockdale Elementary Winter Wonderland
•$200 to Stockdale Senior Citizens Christmas Luncheon
•$300 to Stockdale Ministerial Alliance for Food Bank
•$300 for toys for the Wilson County Sheriff Santa Program.
The next regular meeting of the Stockdale Chamber of Commerce is set for Monday, Jan. 6, at 7 p.m. in the offices of the Stockdale Economic Development Corp. Please plan to attend if you would like to become more involved in any of our events or activities.
