Around the Town

In small town America, the information that would not normally be considered news to larger, metro newspapers is what keeps a hometown newspaper interesting and desired among the readers. College honor rolls or graduations, military news, weddings, engagements, birth announcements, community and organization news - as well as the popular Years Gone By column - are some of the many categories covered in this section.

April 14, 2011

Dear Editor,

We would like to say a huge "THANK YOU" to all of the businesses that participated in the Chamber of Commerce Banquet and Awards Night on April 4. We had a great show of support from those businesses who donated door prizes and bought tables, and also from individuals who bought tickets or supported the ring raffle. It was a great success. We would like to say a special thank you to Leonard ISD, the LHS Jazz Band and Luna Azul for the hospitality, entertainment and great food. This would not have been possible without each of those that participated.
