Excitement Last Week

21 Oct 2019 10:02 AM | Kelita Alberts (Administrator)


Kelita and I have had a super exciting and challenging week.

  • Tuesday - Met with Andrew Ross from Congressman McCaul's office. We discussed a possible visit in the future and some other opportunities to visit with their office. 
  • Wednesday - Celebrated Support Your Chamber Day 
  • Thursday - Took a location scout from The Walking Dead TV series all over town to photograph some empty buildings(Lee County Peanut Mill, old hospital, etc) to have in case any of our cool old buildings might work for a scene or the series. We gave lots of history and talked about all the films that have been done here in the past. His comment - WOW, the streets are very wide here! He is a cool guy!
  • Friday - Doug Giddings and his family were here for a short visit and lunch over at City Meat Market.

If you have a chance drive over to the parking lot behind City Meat Market and next to The Secret Garden...

The City of Giddings Street Crew was over there clearing and making it look nice. The City Street crew does a great job and we are very thrilled with their efforts.

We also noticed the the Courthouse has started putting the Christmas Lights out. We will start dragging out our stuff soon! 

Sip & Shop Christmas Market is over 75% sold on booth spaces.  We are well on our way to maxing our sales out for the show. REminder - We will need help that morning to set up. You can sign up now or later. It is always fun to see a new venue come to life. 

Hope you have a great weekend!
